1969 Mercedes Benz 280 SL RHD
The Mercedes Benz 280 SL is a two seat roadster / coupe and the last variant of the very successful W113 platform that was introduced as the 230 SL at the 1963 Geneva Motor show. The 280 SL is stylistically very similar to the preceding 230 and 250 SL models but benefits from a larger 2.8 Litre engine, which, to many, makes it the best model to drive.
The example offered here is a delightful UK-delivered automatic car which was first registered in August of 1969. It comes with factory hard and soft tops, including wind deflector, and a correct period Becker radio. With little use since the completion of a three year bare-metal professional restoration the car presents wonderfully in its Pimento Red Metallic paint and Black leather interior and retains full matching numbers. The car is accompanied by a good history file including photographs and invoices relating to its restoration and also includes old tax discs, a user manual and other documentation. With a famous previous owner this charming 280 ‘Pagoda’ provides a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of these ever popular 1960s sports cars with an excellent provenance.
