The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster featured here is finished
in stunning Dark Olive Green with a beautiful Cognac interior. This
magnificent motorcar is believed to have been driven just 48,285
miles from new and spent most of its life in Southern California.
Production of the 280SL would conclude in February 1971, making
these true 1971 production 280SLs some of the most coveted by
Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts and collectors to this day. These late
production 1971 280SLs are seldom seen on the market as there are
only a handful known to exist and it is the only 1971 built SL we
have seen in the past year. This Mercedes-Benz is well-equipped
with Frigiking air conditioning, power steering, automatic
transmission, its color matched removable hardtop, retractable
convertible top and more. Accompanying this investment-grade to
280SL Roadster is its owner’s manual, toolkit, buildsheet copy from
Mercedes-Benz and more. Classic cars have proven to be among the
