The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster featured here is finished in stunning Dark Olive Green with a beautiful Cognac interior. This magnificent motorcar is believed to have been driven just 48,648 miles from new and spent most of its life in Southern California. Production of the 280SL would conclude in February 1971, making these true 1971 production 280SLs some of the most coveted by Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts and collectors to this day. These late production 1971 280SLs are seldom seen on the market as there are only a handful known to exist and it is the only 1971 built SL we have seen in the past year. This 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster is well-equipped with Frigiking air conditioning, power steering, automatic transmission, its color matched removable hardtop, retractable convertible top and more. Accompanying this investment-grade to 280SL Roadster is its owner’s manual, toolkit, buildsheet copy from Mercedes-Benz and more.
