1971 MERCEDES BENZ 280 SL ROADSTER:
--Black with Red interior, Red carpeting, Black convertible top, Restored, Factory air conditioning, 79,000 miles, 2.8 Liter inline 6-cylinder engine, Automatic transmission.
The Mercedes W113 type, nick-named “Pagoda” due to a distinctive and patented concave hardtop roofline. Many see as one of the most beautiful cars ever built. All 280 SL models were equipped with an inline 6-cylinder engine with mechanical fuel injection. The comparatively short and wide chassis, combined with an excellent suspension, powerful brakes and radial tires gave the 280 SL superb handling for its time.
This original US-specification 280 SL has been restored to a very high standard. During the restoration it was completely disassembled so that every aspect could be properly addressed. Truly one of the best 280SL Roadsters that you will find with no issues including its visible factory fender pinches. Finished in a gorgeous color combination, it is truly a dream to drive! It is complete with its original books and spare wheel.
