Texas Classic Cars is proud to present this classic 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL. This interesting car's history dates back to where it was sold new at A & B Auto Sales in Fairbanks. Alaska. The car would remain in Alaska the majority of its life. driven on a few fair weather days each year. The car has remained in very good condition. The mileage of 45. 97 is believed original to the car. The car was owned through the 2000s by the same gentleman. We have the original owner's manual. warranty booklet. and Mercedes literature & additional booklets. all provided on initial purchase and stamped with the dealership's stamp. This car is fresh out of a 5 year storage here in Texas. just receiving nearly $5. 00 worth of maintenance here at Texas Classic Cars of Dallas. The paint was refinished in the original green with fresh base/clearcoat paint in 2014 with a verifying receipt. The braking system has also been gone through. The 4-speed shifter was attended too with a replaced boot. grommets and bushings. The car shows well and is a pleasure to drive. Be sure you play our video posted just above. Enjoy our presentation and feel free to contact Dave at 214-213-7072 or Maris at 214-616-2317 with any questions.
