Description

-Ivory with Cognac Brown interior, Brown square weave carpeting, Brown convertible top, Brown optional factory hardtop, Restored, Original colors, Automatic transmission, Factory air conditioning, 2.8 Liter in-line 6-cylinder engine, Restored, well cared for and serviced.

The Mercedes W113 type, nick-named "Pagoda" due to a distinctive and patented concave hardtop roofline. Many see as one of the most beautiful cars ever built. All 280 SL models were equipped with an inline 6-cylinder engine with mechanical fuel injection. The comparatively short and wide chassis, combined with an excellent suspension, powerful brakes and radial tires gave the 280 SL superb handling for its time.

While early history is unknown, this restored 280 SL is cosmetically and mechanically in superb condition throughout. This is an excellent driving example, has always been cared for mechanically, has never sustained any accident damage and whose structure is superb.

This 280SL represents a great value for a collector or enthusiast seeking an enjoyable and reliable vintage Mercedes Benz Roadster.
