1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL $119,980

San Diego, CA Off White · 6 Cylinder · 63,543 miles

Four-speed manual 280SL and a real anomaly—a never rusted European spec car! Still retains her original, factory beige undercoating and most original paint!! Add in the original upholstery, carpet and perfect, original dash wood and this defines Preservation Car! Never seen salt, perfect trunk floor and the original spare is still present.

With the hot cam of her high output Euro spec engine and taller differential—this is a driver’s car!

Icing on the cake: Chassis number 11304410023547 is one of the final 830 280SLs actually built in 1971 and what some call a ‘true’ 1971 model. Of the 23,885 total, this is just 338 from the last car.

Imported on 10/9/1985 (w/all paperwork) - Purchased from Motoring Investments by our client in 2007 w/exactly 99,999 actual kilometers (102,264 now) - She's returned home as he's rotated his collection around - Just freshened mechanically ($8000) with service records intact
