Description

This 1969 280 SL spent his life in sunny California.
10 years ago it came to Hamburg to the current owner and shows up in the original patinated interior, including original carpet in brilliant condition!
7 years ago it was professionally painted in beige including the hardtop, which is documented by invoices. For this purpose, the car was completely stripped of paint. Attention was also paid to details such as the original beading next to the headlight. The dashboard was also painted, which confirms professional work. The delivery colour was dark red.
The car has complete matching numbers!
The engine and the transmission and the brakes work perfectly. It starts immediately, even when standing for a long time and when the engine is very warm.
The gaps show a perfect distance and no rust through is visible.
The original beading on the headlights is still original.

The appraisal of 2016, grade 2, certifies a replacement value of over 93,000 euros.
In 2018, the soft top was renewed and much more:

Injection overhauled, including new nozzles
Brake system completely new
Steering
Shock absorber renewed
Fuel pump overhauled
fuel tank new
Exhaust renewed
The underbody is sealed and the joints and bushings show no play.

The car has been registered on german “07” collecters plates and is fully registered to Germany incl. the H-plate report.
Before it gets handed over the Tüv will be done new. So the next owner will be the first owner registered in the german documents.
Watching this 280 SL Pagode, it is a very solid car and driver that has been professionally taken care of.
