This 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL 2dr Convertible with matching numbers, is in original and unrestored splendor. The car still maintains the standard 6-cyl. 2778cc/180hp motor and 4-speed automatic transmission. With only 77,000 original miles, this car features the original paint, metal, and factory air conditioning. This vehicle represents the last year of production of the W113 model which replaced the 300SL in 1963. This is one of only 830 SL's built by Mercedes Benz in 1971, making it the most coveted of the W113 family. It has no rust or accident history. The iconic engine and air conditioning components are original and documented from the factory. The engine compartment is tidy and the interior is in impeccable original condition. The seats are firm and comfortable, and the car has all the original wood, which has gracefully withstood the test of time. This 280SL has been stored for years and has never had modifications. Other features include a hardtop and soft-top, both proudly in excellent condition. Original wheels and hubcaps finish this consummate original SL. The original manuals are present and accounted for.
