Technical specifications, photos and description:
Revival Motor Cars Inc is pleased to present the sale of this 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda 4 speed manual for complete ground up restoration. This non-runner was uncovered from an extended period of storage where the elements took their toll on the body and undercarriage including floor pans. sills. cross member and untold areas that will reveal themselves once stripped to bare metal.
This stately roadster is otherwise very complete and original as can be seen in the photos. The factory colors of light ivory. brown leather and brown carpet have been maintained. The odometer indicates 96. 00 miles but true mileage is unknown. The engine block is original 280SL but a factory data card would be needed to prove numbers matching.
Option and paint codes on the data plate indicate a US car (491). with outside left rear view mirror (503). and light ivory color (670 H) including hard top. The hard top headliner and trim looks original and intact. The soft top mechanism is complete but a new top is needed. Some often missing and hard to find parts included are: top removal handles. tool kit (partially complete). jack. original radio. chrome trim. and front grill (that's $3000 if missing). The chrome finishes show minimal pitting. holding up well. The dash has a few cracks. Please examine the photos carefully and contact us with any further questions.
The former keeper in rural Western Canada inherited this car from his father and it remained in the family for over 20 years. Attempts were made to keep the mechanicals serviceable. tires. and some cosmetic bodywork to the rear. but with no true SL expertise at hand to address the real issues. keeping it on the road was a challenge.
The 280SL has those teutonic qualities that exude class. style. exclusivity. and hand built German engineering. summed up simply by that solid ‘thud' of the door closing. This is an opportunity to acquire one of the most desirable variants of this investable classic and one of few cars that will increase in value to the level you want to restore it. Again. bare metal restoration is what this special roadster requires to bring it to its potential.
Thanks and happy bidding.
