HISTORY Next came the SL-Class 230 SL, a new design with a 2.3-litre mechanically fuel injected six cylinder engine. It featured a low waistline and big curved greenhouse windows, and a Coupe Roadster with detachable hardtop, whose distinctive roofline earned the nickname "pagoda top." The design was by Paul Bracq. Around 1967, the engine received a displacement increase and the model became known as the 250 SL. Within a year the engine displacement was increased for the final time and the model designation became 280 SL.  SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA  SPECIFICS / BUILD INFORMATION 1968 was pivotal for the 280SL as it evolved from a sports car into a comfortable, capable grand tourer. Upgrades to the 2.8L inline 6 boosted power and torque numbers ahead of class rivals. Investors are finding it more difficult to find these vehicles clean and rust-free. This is a fantastic example of a well maintained, mostly original 280 SL. EXTERIOR
