1969 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

1969 MERCEDES 280SL Roadster - Hardtop - automatic transmission
This car does not have the soft top frame only hardtop as shown - this car has working brakes - newer shocks and tires as well
It was on the road in 2012 and stolen at that time ! It needs very little work to be back on the road - and if not sold we will
just might find the time to fix it up a little and sell it for $44,000 with less than $1000 worth of work !!!! Some say why we do not do that ? Well
I have 14 Mercedes to deal with and time is short - I am not in the restoration business - I supply parts to restoration shops including
the MERCEDES CLASSIC CENTER !!!!! I have 3 pagodas available at this time all on ebay - NOT RUST BUCKETS -NOT BURNED
VIN # 113 044 12 005010 Early 1969 build date Jan 1969 !
Engine was replaced at some time .
Engine # 130 980 12 015615 The engine turns over fine by hand . It was last running int 2012
Original color ! 304 G horizon blue color code - 904 G Midnight blue hardtop color and hubcap color as well
This car is a theft recovery from 2012 . When I got the car it was missing many parts
most of which I have replaced and some not shown will be included as well .
MAJOR ITEMS TAKEN and replaced - front and rear lights - grille and hood
instruments and dash parts - all have been replaced or are included
Hood is in excellent condition - bare aluminum so not much left to do except paint and finish
mounting it . This is a very solid car needing very little work to be back on the road - I found no real problem rust issues at all on the
body or on the frame and floors except some typical surface rust on a few areas where the factory undercoating
has worn away . Trunk floor has some surface rust but is still solid and we painted it as well . Original
excellent factory trunk mats ! Seats are in excellent condition just need a little cleaning but no rips or tears at all
1 door panel was removed but both are in very nice condition as you will see .
Good luck

I have a verbal contract on the sale of the car and expect payment on 8/17 - If payment makes it into my account the car will be SOLD
and the listing removed - What this means is even if you hit the BUY NOW at this time I just want you to be aware that there is a pending sale
that will be honored FIRST !! I am not ending the listing until the car is paid for as it costs $100 ++++ to relist it - If you hit BUY now
you will be next in line to purchase it !!! This is ebay and as many sellers know - cars are never actually sold until the money is paid !!!!
