1970 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL

Offered for sale is an exceptionally clean, onest and solid 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL finished in rare and wonderfully era specific Dark Olive (DB 291) with a Black (DB 040) hard top and hubcaps and a Black leather interior. Having been garaged and well cared for its entire life – never exposed to the elements – the car’s undercarriage is completely solid, riginal and free of any harmful corrosion, hich can also be said of the car’s body which is entirely straight, etaining even panel fits and gaps. A two-owner car, ts first owner drove it until 1977, hen it was purchased by the principal of a Mercedes specialty shop in Bethlehem, A. He would keep the car for nearly 37 years, sing it strictly as a weekend driver and of course keeping it maintained using only OEM parts. In recent years his advancing age yielded less and less use of the car, hich eventually prompted our being able to acquire it earlier this year.

Not surprisingly, he car is mechanically sound, ts original engine firing up easily, dling consistently and pulling strongly and smoothly through each of the original automatic transmission’s gears. The car drives and brakes straight and true, he suspension is tight and the ride quality is entirely comfortable, hether cruising down the highway or winding through the canyons. One of the 280SL’s most appreciated aspects is that they are truly mechanically modern enough for everyday use on today’s roads while maintaining all of that wonderful vintage look and appeal.

The car is also aesthetically beautiful, he Dark Olive finish consistent and clean, arred only by minor imperfections, one of which are significant enough to appear in and of the photographs. All of the glass and chrome is in excellent original condition, ave for a very soft impression in the passenger side rear bumper that’s difficult to see in photographs. The car’s original Black hub-capped wheels are in excellent condition, rapped in new Pirelli P4000 tires. The car’s interior is equally as clean, he leather seats having been recently reupholstered using all the correct materials and patterns. The carpets and interior panels are both in good original condition, s is the dash and wood trim. The car retains its Becker radio and comes with a dealer installed Frigiking AC unit that is functional, lbeit somewhat ineffective. Rarely used, he hard top is in great shape and the car’s black canvas soft-top is free of any rips or tears.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a consistently appreciating Mercedes 280SL with all the right things going for it: beautiful cosmetics, are color combination, olid original undercarriage, trong original engine and sound mechanicals. Whether for the Mercedes enthusiast or just someone looking for a lovely weekend driver, his car deserves the serious consideration of anyone in the W113 Pagoda market.
