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 280 SL has been restored by a well-known California
restoration company some years ago, but remains in superb condition
throughout with only the slightest wear to the whatsoever. The
structure of this SL was excellent prior to restoration unlike many
SL's due to their being used over the years in all weather
condition and prone to rust. Please also note, this SL has never
had any accident damage. It has been restored with European
headlights and no USA side reflectors and thus has an extremely
clean look with the Silver Metallic paint. It is also equipped with
rare period air conditioning system which is blowing cold and as it
was originally intended. The engine and transmission was rebuilt in
total and also runs extremely well and as intended.
This SL has been serviced when and where needed at all times and
come with a proper maintenance file. In the no so distant past,
this 280 had been driven from Southern California to Monterey and
shown at The Quail "A Motorsport Gathering" during August's
Monterey - Pebble Beach automobile festivities.
Surely one of the finest 280SL's available on the market today, it
has been driven approximately 1,500 miles since restoration and
serviced as need, this 280 SL is complete with books, tools, jack
and records. The 280 SL is more and more popular as the years go
by, it is one of the most user friendly vintage automobiles that
can be used and is genuinely perfect for every occasion.
