Classics and vintage vehicles have a certain appeal to them that the sleek modern cars of today cannot match up to. When that classic car is a Mercedes-Benz, that appeal is increased tenfold. We all know the durability and Mercedes-Benz's immaculate engineering of their vehicles has earned them a name at the top. Mercedes-Benz dates back to 1901, and during the 50s, the legendary Mercedes-Benz 300 SL was introduced. Its successor is the Mercedes-Benz W113, a two-seat roadster/coupe which was produced from 1963 to 1971. Up for grabs is a 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL with less than 4000 miles on the rebuilt engine and in excellent condition after over 50 years.
Replacing the iconic Mercedes-Benz 190SL and 300 SL is no easy feat; the German legends stole hearts while driving by on the motorway and powering through racetracks. What came after the iconic pair was the equally impressive Mercedes-Benz Pagoda, with a unique design and as the golden standard of German engineering driving off the dealership floors in those days was nothing but smiles. This well-preserved 1970 Mercedes- Benz 280SL Pagoda is present today in all its glory, with a reported 59,050 miles on the clock; this low mileage example is a near-factory example and yours to enjoy.
Mercedes-Benz is a German luxury vehicle producer that needs no introduction whatsoever. One of their finest model line-ups was the Mercedes-Benz R107/C107 range of cars, produced from 1971 till 1989. These were classified as sports car/grand tourers. The R107/C107 were available in the SL and SLC configuration. Up for grabs is an impressive 1980 Mercedes-Benz 280 SLC Euro model, with just 66,562 miles on the clock.
This 1980 Mercedes Benz 280SL.is a German import, shipped here in 1981. All original, 60,486 miles. Finished in MB champagne metallic paint, and dark brown leather interior with a plaid cloth middle. Has the classic aftermarket BBS wheels. The car has the paint matching hardtop and a black soft top underneath. Very few blemishes are noted on this car, being, the fuel gauge does not work, 1-2 paint spots most likely needing a respray, and the fuel accumulator is going to need to be replaced soon, these things will make it 100%. It just had Valve cover gaskets replaced, valve adjustment, new air filter, new spark plugs, timing done, injectors tested and cleaned, coolant flushed replaced and lines bled, and there is a new fuel pump. This car runs great, and 100% turns some heads.
The 85’ 280SL was the third generation in the ‘SL-Class’, which was meant to be a lighter, more fun, and slightly more exciting car compared to most of the Mercedes line-up that usually boasted luxury and comfort. The two-door sports car offered a fabulous experience to those who liked to drive a powerful and nippy vehicle, but also show off a little bit of wealth. In fact, this specific generation of the SL-Class was so popular, it became the second-longest series Benz ever produced after the G- Class, which is a justification of its legendary status even today. The example on offer is currently in Washington and is up for sale by its previous owner, who has looked after this 1985 Mercedes-Benz 280SL for 23 years.
