1985 Mercedes-Benz 280SL
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
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. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Redline Restorations is delighted to offer this 1985 Mercedes Benz 280SL!
The Mercedes Benz SL-class roots all the way back to 1954 with the world renowned 300SL Gullwing. From its conception, the SL had been designed as a road-going version of a race car, yet outfitted with the luxuries of a Mercedes Benz.
This concept has remained true all the way through the SL’s most current generation, with many of its roots tracing back to the AMG GT. This particular example is a 3rd generation model (R107 generation) and is magnificently equipped.
This particular SL has been optioned with the 2.8L Inline 6 engine rated at 182 HP and 177 lb/ft of torque sent directly to the rear wheels through a slick 5 speed manual transmission - a rare option in the Mercedes SL community.
Featuring a black leather interior, with a black leather wrapped steering wheel, wood trim, and a color-matched removable hard top, this vehicle has been perfectly spec-ed out to an SL enthusiast’s dream!
