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 magnificent 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL roadster featured here is finished in gorgeous and highly desired dark blue over Cognac leather interior and black folding convertible top. This investment-grade example comes with every available option including factory air conditioning, power steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, and the rare and desirable factory 4-speed manual transmission. This highly original and extremely well preserved 280SL roadster is among why the nicest original examples we have seen in years. With the exception of new carpeting, a new factory convertible top and one high quality bare metal re-spray in its orginal factory color, this pagoda is entirely original. Accompanied with its original owner’s manual, service booklet, workshop manual, data card, and tools. I personally believe the investment potential of this virtual time capsule will grow beyond your imagination. Offered to the most demanding collector investor enthusiasts who desire to own one of the very best!!
