The Mercedes-Benz SL series started out as the top of the line
sports luxury tourer that offered both performance and comfort. The
third generation SL was called the R107 chassis and is one of the
most recognizable Mercedes of all time. Produced from 1971 all the
way to 1989, the R107 lived a long and cherished life. The United
States was an extremely popular market for the personal luxury
coupe and almost ? of all SL's were sold here. While US market cars
were held to specific emissions standards, Euro market cars were
free to be the best they could possibly be.
The 1979 Mercedes Benz 280 SL offered here is a great cruiser. It
is finished in white over a black and gray interior. It is powered
by its 2.8L 6 cylinder engine with a 3 speed automatic
transmission. The 280 rides on 15 inch factory wheels with
Continental tires. Highlights include power brakes, power steering,
air conditioning, spare tire, jack and tools, first aid kit,
Pioneer AM/FM/CD player. The car has a removable hard top and a
soft top as well. The soft top goes up and down as it should, it
does show some age however. This is a great running cruiser ready
for its next owner.
