For Sale: 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL in Laguna Beach, California

Vehicle Description

This pristine, late production 280 SL represents the most highly developed version of the W113 series and is a pleasure to drive. The 280 SL has been carefully maintained and updated as need but retains its Mercedes-Benz originality. The under-carriage is as clean and immaculate as the engine compartment. The front fenders retain the factory weld marks and the firewall rubber insulation appears to be original. Here is a link to a video test drive:


Power steering
Power 4-wheel disc brakes
Automatic transmission
Becker Europa radio
Heated rear glass
Both removable hardtop and soft top

The 280SL Roadsters are without a doubt the sweet spot of the classic Mercedes-Benz model range. They remain attainable despite rapidly increasing values over recent years, in addition to being extremely stylish, and reliable enough to be used for pleasure on a frequent basis. The elegant and understated styling of these Roadsters, penned by designer and artist Paul Bracq, made the model a desirable accessory for young Hollywood celebrities in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

The 1971 Mercedes Benz drives well, is reliable, starts easily, and runs smoothly with no issues.

This 280 SL is exempt from smog certification and comes with a clean California title.
