For Sale: 1984 Mercedes-Benz 280SL in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Here is an absolutely stunning 1984 Mercedes 280 SL in great condition inside and out. This car is a Euro Spec unit imported from Germany in the late 80s. These cars still retained thesuper desirable small bumper 107 SL, which is a much sleeker looking car than its later incarnations. This car is straight out of an estate and is believed to have only 39,000 actual miles, but has no paperwork to confirm it. It is rare to find these SL's with this kind of low mileage because once you drive this car you won't want to get out. Here is your chance to own the Mercedes Iconic R107 SL for a fraction of its original sticker cost.

The list of some of the equipment:

-2.8L Dual Overhead Cam Straight 6
-Automatic Transmission
-Manual Windows
-Power Door Locks
-Like New Original Soft Top
-Removable Hard Top
-Upgraded Am/Fm CD
-Ice Cold A/C
-Beautiful Original Tartan Interior

The body on the car is in very good condition and was extremely well maintained. The paint on the car is still its original color of Code 568 Signal Red and is an older repaint but shines beautifully. The car has been completely inspected underneath from front to back and is solid as a rock with ZERO rust or ANY kind of corrosion on top or underneath. The car is riding on gorgeous Upgraded 15" "gullideckel" wheels with fresh Michelin tires. All chrome trim, glass, and rubber seals are in great shape. All glass is original, even the wind shield is original Mercedes German glass. The black soft top is like new with crystal clear plastic windows. The hard top has good seals and the headliner is in awesome shape. Overall the exterior appearance of this car is a 9 out of 10. There is one area of paint shrinkage on the strip between the top boo and trunk lid about a 3" x3" area.

The interior is in great shape all around. The dash and door panels are in excellent condition. The original euro cloth seats are all in very good condition and look absolutely as good as the day it was new which shows the quality of material used in this car. The carpets are all very nice and have been professionally cleaned. All dials and controls function as they should; power windows and antenna also are fully functional. The A/C does blow cold and good amount of volume, but the center vents are not working the way they should. Cold Air is diverted up to the defrost. Another item to note is the Speedometer/Odometer has been changed over to GPS controlled Digital Unit. This was because the speedometer cable was broken and being a 5-Speed the shop could not find a replacement and this was done as an alternative option. Miles on the unit match up with the carfax showing regular mile accumulation over the years with no rollbacks.

Mechanically, this SL runs GREAT! The car starts right up and shifts smooth as silk. It drives as good now as the day it rolled of the lot. The straight 6 engine is surprisingly quick and responsive. Many Mercedes experts and mechanics stand behind the 2.8L as the best engine Mercedes ever made. It is reliable, easy to fix, and parts are readily available. The suspension is very tight and feels solid even at autobahn speeds above 90mph. The most recent owner spent over thousands working the Air Conditioning system, complete front end overhaul, all new shocks, all new brakes, fuel system gone through with new fuel pumps and pressure regulators, and transmission fully resealed as well as a recent full tune up including ballast, coils, plugs, wires. The RARE 5-Speed Manual transmission shifts like butter and is SO RARE to see in a 107 car.

All in all, this is one of the cleanest and nicest small bumper SL's that I have had the privilege of being associated with. It has been professionally maintained and truly loved by its previous owners. This Mercedes is a fantastic car for the price and includes every option offered in this car. This is your chance to get an almost new 280sl convertible for a fraction of the original cost and super well maintained. The car has a clean Arizona Title.
