For Sale Mercedes 280SL 1984 4Speed Auto Gold 61. 00 miles.

The Good Bits This car has a Full MOT and has 61. 02 Recorded miles ( believed genuine ).

This is the 4 speed auto with child seats in the rear. Original Mohair hood. Everything works as it should. All the chrome is excellent and the rear valence is like new. No rips or tears in the upholstery. It has the 2. 8 litre straight 6 185 BHP M110 Engine. It has a new battery and water pump and recent exhaust system. New JVC stereo installed. The bodywork is in excellent condition with no rot.  There is a service history book which although has got wet at sometime it is possible to see that there are 7 stamps to 33K in 1990 and there is a further stamp at 42K which is illegible. The car had 58K miles on the clock when I bought it and I had it serviced straight after I bought it. It has an LPG conversion with the original Installers Certificate. This has been correctly registered with the DVLA. The car drives nicely on LPG and works out £ for £ to be doing around 34MPG on gas. The system is in as new condition as its probably only done around a 1000 miles on gas. **Please note **It has been installed very carefully in such a way that it could be removed quite easily and leave virtually no trace that it was ever fitted - if originality is important to you. The LPG filler is behind the number plate for example. no ugly extra holes in the car.

The not so Good Bits

There is a scratch on the nearside where the fitter caught the ramp when fitting the LPG system ( I was livid!). This hasn't gone through to the metal and could be easily repaired by a "Chips Away" type repair. ( Please see pics). The original Hardtop comes with the car and looks good from the outside but unfortunately a previous owner must have stored it outside and the rear underneath is very rusty. This might be repairable but it would be a big job. This never really bothered me and I have never used the hard top as I bought a convertible to drive with the roof DOWN. ( They do say its a good thing if the original hard top comes with the car though so its included anyway). Good secondhand hard tops are available on E bay from time to time. The soft top is not new but looks okay/presentable and doesn't leak. The rear quarter windows are beginning to crack where the hood is folded into the recess. they all go eventually as the plastic ages. This was high on my list to do and replacement hoods are again available off  E bay. There are a few marks here and there as you would expect but overall its a lovely car.

Summary

I have owned this car since July 2007 and I have the V5 in my name at my address. It has covered very few (dry) miles in my ownership. as since buying it my kids grew larger and we got a Labrador!. The car has been dry stored in my garage for the last 5 years or so. I was intending to keep this for my retirement but now I need the space. It drives lovely with no smoke or rattles and no leaks. All gears change up and down fine. Obviously it is a 32 year old car and IT IS NOT NEW. But it does have lovely patina and needs to be driven again. It has always been reliable.

I have described the car as honestly as I can but I am not a mechanic so please satisfy yourself that its what you want. Viewings are welcome and positively ENCOURAGED. The kettle is always on.

Please E mail any questions or phone/text 07886 033984. The car may be advertised elsewhere so I reserve the right to end the auction early. £100 Deposit via Paypal at auction end please. The Balance to be paid on collection in cash or bank transfer. PLEASE NOTE . <<<< YOU BID TO BUY >>>> Please NO messers or scammers>>>
