For Sale: 1985 Mercedes-Benz 280SL in Falls City, Nebraska

Vehicle Description

This is an excellent investment, with used car prices, particularly collectibles, increasing as never before. Offer is a great value compared to other recent listing on the net.

The charcoal gray exterior, I believe, is the most attractive the 280SL was ever produced in. It was only available for a limited time and consequently is very rare. I have received many compliments on it through the years.

The National Association of Auto Dealers, (NADA) values this particular model at about $27,000.

I am 78 and have owned this vehicle since 1989. I dearly love it. However, due to personal reasons, I have to let it go. I wish I could keep it forever.

Offering comes with detachable hardtop. This is not available, in a majority of listing. At a minimum, this is a $5,600 value. Buyer could easily sell this separately, to help defray the purchase. VIN number indicates this is one of the last 118 of the thirteen years model run. Consequently, its engineering is state of the art.

Working radio has original German markings. Entire vehicle is in original design specifications. No modifications, such as dual headlights, bumper or tail light configurations have been made. Nothing that would alter the original factory appearance.

The factory equipped 2.8 liter, 5 speed automatic runs well. The 110 engine is considered one of the best ever produced and was light years ahead of its time. Mechanics love it as well. To those who know engines, this is actually preferred over the American V8.

Only 28,000 units were produced for the European market, over its total model run.  Fractions of that number were imported to the US and even fewer are still available.

You will have something exceptional was this much beloved auto.
