VW Kombi Van Seeing Resurgence in Popularity

The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Classic Car Overview

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys Paris event, 5 February 2020.
  • Offered from the Poster Car Collection
  • Delivered new to the U.S.
  • Lovely dark-red-over-beige colour combination

Produced in August of 1969, this 280 SL was sold new to the U.S. and remained there for most of its life, allegedly passing through just two owners there, with the second owning it for thirty years. In 2011 the car had a full repaint in its current shade of dark red, and the engine was fully rebuilt at 27,000 miles. The following year it was exported to the UK from California following a light recommissioning. Importantly, the car is fitted with the automatic transmission and comes supplied with both its soft top and the iconic Pagoda hard top. Furthermore, it is equipped with air conditioning, power windows, a modern Sony stereo, and colour-coded seat belts.

Just as fashionable today as it was fifty years ago, the W113-generation 280 SLs have proven to be an enduring Mercedes-Benz icon, second to only the first-generation ancestors, the 300 SL Gullwings and Roadsters. Paul Barcqs styling created a car that was sophisticated and timeless, perfectly matched to the top-of-the-range 280 SL engine. More than capable of handling duties as a warm-weather daily driver, the 280 SL will surely remain popular for the next fifty years or more.
