Description

This is a very original 1968 Mercedes 280SL in exceptional condition. It received a professional restoration in 2017 that included repainting the entire car, refinishing the chrome, restoring the interior and rebuilding the engine, transmission, suspension and brakes. As a result, the car looks, drives and feels the same way it rolled out of the factory in Germany over 50 years ago. The Mercedes 280 SL "pagoda" is an automotive icon with timeless, graceful styling, spirited performance and handling, and build quality and reliability second to none. The car has plush, supportive seats and a high quality of craftsmanship throughout, including the soft top, which disappears easily and unobtrusively when not in use. The smooth running 170-hp inline-6 engine and four speed automatic transmission deliver ample power and acceleration to navigate modern traffic conditions with ease. The large, power-assisted steering wheel makes the steering fingertip light and the servo-assisted four-wheel disc brakes bring the car promptly to a stop. Note: - A removable hard top is available on request, but please keep in mind that it is very heavy, requires two people to remove and needs to be stored properly. - The factory-installed rear jump seat should NOT be used for a third passenger due to safety concerns.
