This 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL has recently undergone a comprehensive restoration done to a very high standard, and has traveled a mere 81,850 believed-original miles. The car comes complete with both the soft convertible top and the optional factory hardtop. This 280SL represents the final evolution of the model series that was originally introduced in 1963 and produced through final model-year 1971. Referred to as the âpagodaâ Mercedes-Benz, this moniker was taken from the inverted roof shape of the hardtop. This Mercedes is really the ideal choice for an investment-grade classic car. The classic body lines have gracefully aged with time and arguably present better today than ever before, the 2.8L single overhead-cam fuel-injected inline-6 engine has a legendary reputation for both reliability and longevity, and there is an active manufacturer-supported parts-availability program. Mercedes-Benz was a forward-thinking company and was one of the first to integrate safety engineering into its cars. The central cabin area is structurally reinforced to protect the occupants with front and rear âcrush zonesâ designed to absorb impact in the event of a crash. The 280SL was intended for grand touring with an emphasis on creature comfort combined with sharp cornering capability; hence, the majority of USA-specification cars came equipped with automatic transmission, air conditioning and power steering. The suspension dynamics of the 280SL is exemplary with 4-wheel independent suspension and the 4-wheel disc brake system ensures world-class stopping power. This is a classic car that you can drive and enjoy with no compromise to comfort, safety or performance. This 280SL presents beautifully in the factory-correct color DB050 White, complemented by a dark-bamboo leather interior with the classic MB-Tex grain and finish. Everything works perfectly and there are no rattles, squeaks or issues. Starts right up and settles into a smooth quiet idle. Fine examples are becoming harder to find and these are constantly appreciating in value. -Over $50,000 spent on total restoration -Two sets of keys -Books -Manuals -Tool kit -Service, maintenance and restoration receipts
