To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys Amelia Island event, 8 - 9 March 2019. Estimate:$90,000 - $110,000 Delicious cappuccino color combinationTwo owners since new; stored in a climate-controlled facilitySuperbly restored example of popular Pagoda model Simply the finest 280 SL availableThe 280 SL Pagoda, affectionately named for its innovative hard top design, remains one of the most popular derivatives of the SL pedigree. Utilizing lightweight aluminum panels, the 280 SL lived up to its Sport Leicht acronym and offered unparalleled visibility belying its muscular structure. Whilst lightweight in build, the 280 SL packed a heavyweight punch with its 2.8-liter inline six-cylinder engine and multi-port fuel injection, capable of 170 hp and a top speed of 124 mph. For its superb handling, impressive performance, and unique concave hardtop design, the Pagoda soon became the preferred place of worship for the Mercedes-Benz roadster devotee. This distinctive example was delivered in a cappuccino combination of Light Beige over Dark Brown leather with matching carpets. It was purchased by William Stribling, a businessman in Atlanta, Georgia, for his daughter Marianne for her birthday while she was attending college. The car was eventually garaged and then in 1992 assigned to marque specialist Laurent DeGive of Buford, Georgia, for a complete restoration. All aspects of the Mercedes-Benz were addressed, including a full mechanical rebuild and cosmetic refurbishment, down to the last detail. Even the factory-applied torque stripes on the bolts were replicated to ensure the car was as correct as possible. The Pagoda emerged seven years and $150,000 later in factory perfect condition. It was deemed too precious to reside on Marianne s horse farm and thus remained at the restorer s atelier until it was acquired by the current owner in August 2011. Since then this 280 SL has been stored in a climate-controlled facility, driven only 100 miles in dry weather and remains in exception condition throughout. Accompanied by service records, restoration receipts, and photographs, this 280 SL represents the ultimate driving classic. Not only is it a highly collectible investment, this example is without question the finest Mercedes-Benz Pagoda available.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am19.
