(Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 135 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.)

"Certain car makers had a golden age of car making in our opinion here at Collector HQ and, for Mercedes, the 1970s would be chief amongst them. There are few better examples of this in action than (the) stunning 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL...." - TheCollector website, October 2020

Another popular website-Opumo-explained the appeal: "With its iconic status continually rising, the 280SL exists as one of the most sought-after models on the road today. Revered for its well-balanced stance and superior elegance, the 280SL may not be as powerful as the 300SL or even as svelte as the 190SL – but it remains eternally stylish."

"In total only 23,885 models were ever made which serves to heighten the car's appeal. Beyond its voluptuous exterior, the car's popularity stems from perfected development – the fact that the engine is perhaps the best fitting to the SL than any other Mercedes model. But, despite its power, the 280SL is revered for being one of the most comfortable and reserved sports cars on the market."

Offered here in white-over-camel is a 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL (W113), a California-owned example. This is a collector-grade automobile in every way. Having traveled some 108,370 miles since new, or roughly just 2,125 miles per-year on average, the SL has been lightly used and maintained with real commitment by fastidious owners. In all respects, the superb condition of the car's every surface and every component bears that out. (It should be noted that in the few cases where the prior owner has upgraded the car to taste, all original removed parts-the steering wheel, radio, wheels and hubcaps-are included in the sale.)

The exterior white paint is evenly applied across the car and retains excellent gloss. All exterior chrome trim-including front and rear bumpers (with overriders), front grille with Mercedes 3-pointed star emblem, headlight trim (the original with the "notches" added on the production line during assembly), windscreen trim, door handles, side mirror, exhaust tips, and taillight trim-has likewise been properly maintained. In classic Mercedes fashion, emblems were sparingly applied in Stuttgart: just the center hood emblem and rear-deck star logo and model designation. Cabin glass and lighting lenses front and rear are clear and free of cracks or discoloration. The fabric convertible top is also free of damage but shows normal wear; the included removable "Pagoda" hardtop (and its stand for static storage) looks virtually brand-new. Chrome wheels from a later-model Mercedes are mounted with 195/70R14 Michelin® Radial X tires.

Inside, the camel-colored leather, carpeting and other trim makes for a beautiful companion to the exterior white paint. The seat upholstery displays just the right color-aging and touch of patina, but no damage. The wood windshield trim atop the dashboard-so often seen in badly deteriorated condition on Mercedes models of this era-has been beautifully maintained and perfectly blends with the camel leather. Indeed, the entire dash (with cabin-facing surfaces painted in the body color, and padded leather top and bottom) is a beautiful expression of period Mercedes design. The driver's pod includes original VDO® analog gauges for the tachometer and speedometer, with a beautiful, rectangular-shaped combination of auxiliary engine-monitoring instruments in the center. Slide-lever controls for the factory heat, an upgraded Alpine® audio head unit (removed original radio, as noted earlier, is included), and an analog clock occupy the middle of the dashboard. Even the glove box is without flaw. A Frigiking® air-conditioning unit is installed below the dash. The shift lever for the automatic transmission is floor-mounted. Leather door trim is free of rips or tears but shows some looseness from age. The car's trunk-home to the spare tire and Alpine® cd changer-is well organized and properly tidy.

Under the front-hinged hood, the highly regarded 170-horsepower, 2,778cc (2.8 liter) M-130 straight-six-original to the car-with properly routed hoses and wiring occupies a strikingly tidy engine bay. Components-including the air conditioning system-are properly installed, and every surface is clean. No shine-enhancing sprays have been applied, and no modifications have been made. The engine has clearly benefited from proper routine maintenance. Viewed from below, the car's chassis is perfectly complete, properly organized, and free of damage.

The car's original factory data plate remains correctly riveted to the body. The original toolkit and literature is included in the sale.

While the more than 135 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this 280SL in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

About Garage Kept Motors

For our buyers, our vehicles are listed on the Internet, with over 100 photos, including undercarriage pictures, and walk-around videos of the vehicles running plus a narrative-style write-up of the cars history and features. Our international exposure allows us to sell cars across the globe, and we sell a majority of them out of state and overseas. We deliver honesty and consistency in our photos and descriptions, a “no surprise” approach, so buyers, both near and far, can invest with confidence sight unseen. We are not a gallery. Vehicles can be seen locally by appointment as potential buyers are given our undivided attention.
