For Sale: 1985 Mercedes-Benz 280SL in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1985 Mercedes-Benz 280SL has the distinction of never being offered to the USA. So while you still get the same level of luxury - including both roofs and cold-blowing A/C - you also get added distinction of Euro-spec features like the bumpers and a five-speed. Yes, you've found a stick-shift SL!

This kind of style is often sought-after by Benz fans. The 280SL designation reaches back into the Pagoda car history. Plus, the European bumpers hug the front and rear of the car much better than the U.S.-spec models. It looks especially nice around the rear where the wraparound chrome gives the design lines a simple purity that's absolutely attractive. The deep blue paint earns its name with a sophisticated color that's a touch darker than you often see on these R107-model Benzs. The color has the right mix of good-looking completeness that also won't make you afraid to show off this distinctive SL all over town. It has a detailed well-kept look everywhere from the factory alloys to the dignified gray pinstripe. And we particularly like the look of the roofs. The color-matched hardtop has the look of a well-proportioned coupe, and the blue soft top is in a slightly darker shade for a very European level of cool.

As good as this look with either roof, a car like this is the most fun with no top at all. And because the gray pinstripe coordinates with the gray interior, this Mercedes has a thoughtful level of style with the top down. The carpeting, door panels, and leather upholstery all have the premium look and feel that's ideal for a luxury car. And you have nice features like power windows, power steering, and cold-blowing air conditioning. It has a highly stock and well-kept style. In fact, the largest upgrade you're likely to notice is the AM/FM/cassette stereo. But that helps tell this car's story because it was likely replaced when imported because the Euro-spec stereo doesn't work in the USA.

Under the hood is a distinct motor. The 2.8-liter fuel-injected straight-six for the 280SL was the only time they offered a dual overhead camshaft engine in the R107 series. And when you have a setup that loves to rev, it's nice to have the control of a five-speed manual transmission. And when you're looking for just an easy cruiser, the inherent smoothness of the motor works with the fuel injection to be effortlessly luxurious. And features like the fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes make this great for highways or back roads.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, warranty card, and maintenance records. This is luxury cruising and extra distinction. That makes for an impressive classic, especially at this affordable price. Call today!!!
