Description:

1969 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series

Mercedes touted the 280SL Pagoda as the direct descendant of the 300SL/SLR. The 280SL was the sum of everything that Mercedes-Benz engineers have learned about high-performance sporting machinery . It was undoubtedly one of the finest handling cars of its type in the world. The reinforced flat frame steel floor with a welded on body formed the unit structure which added to the allure of the car. With a fully independent 4-wheel suspension with coil springs and heavy duty shocks, Mercedes managed to create a true sports car that didnt have you suffering from back pain the next day. Its ride was smooth and comfortable while delivering unparallelled handling and performance. The 7,000RPM tach let you know that Mercedes was serious about creating a high-performance roadster. The single overhead cam in-line 6 cylinder 2.8 liter (169.5 cu. in.) fuel injected motor put out a respectable 193 lbs./ft of torque and over 180 horsepower (SAE). The sexy sleek SL was capable of well over 120 mph. Speed was brought to a halt by power assisted disc brakes at all 4 corners. Mercedes didnt stop there...inward the car featured some of the finest coachwork available across any line of vehicle. The open cabriolet body included a folding convertible top. Both driver and passenger are treated to contoured bucket-type reclining seats. The cockpit is lavish and eloquent. Deep twist carpet covers the floors and transmission tunnel. Walnut decorates the dash and console areas. The large tach and speedometer are displayed with white on black readings. All gauges are easy to read and fit the styling perfectly. Both pilot and co-pilot are treated to their own heating and cooling controls. Mercedes was also proud to let you know that the SL offers more forward legroom than a Rolls-Royce. Overall the sleek and rich styling of this entire vehicle makes for a driving experience you wont soon forget. Our gorgeous 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL is production car #943 of 8,047 produced
