- Built in the final months of production - one of the last cars before production stopped in March '71' - Over £42,000 spent in the current ownership from 2017 -2023 - Engine out, body stripped and restored in 2019 -Equipped with Head reasts, Hard top, Rear seat and period Beck Mexico radio - An exceptional example of a convertible icon Presented in Gunmetal Grey coachwork with contrasting Dark Blue hide, carpets and soft top both trimmed to match. White wall tyres fitted to the wheels and the highly polished wheel trims are to mirror finish. Equipped with 3rd rear fold out seat, headrest to the front seats and the added safety of seat belts. Instalment of a Becker Mexico period radio finishes off this iconic cabin. All chrome work is gleaming and finishes off the look of this timeless classic. 64 years after the 280SL was first unveiled to the world in November 1967 it has the same importance today as it did then. This example being a 71 car makes it one of the last cars to be built before production ended in March 1971. Fastforward to 2017 the car was acquired by a keen marque expert who carried out a 2 year restoration which was completed 2019. The works were photographed and documented at each point of importance. These works included; - Removing the engine and all ancillary items from the engine compartment - Tripping the body of all fittings etc - Fully repainting the body in gleaming Gunmetal Grey The car also benefits from a significant amount of mechanical refreshment which were carried out by marque specialists - the total cost was over £42,000 which is all documented on file. This example stands proudly, the panel fitment is superb, the swage lines crisp and crucially sharp down both sides of the car just as it did in '71'. On the button and ready for its next adventure down the Routes-Nationales with their tall poplar trees lining the long straights.
