Description:

1983 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Coupe

1983 Euro 280sl imported from Germany in 1986.This is a super clean SL with low miles. Unfortunately, I must let the Merc go to a new home, need the space. This car is a ton of fun to drive!No Rust in bulkhead, all original dash in excellent condition. You can find Automatic 1980's 280sl's from Europe, and even a couple 4 speed manuals, but the 5-speed Getrag is super rare!
All new parts, Just replaced:Bosch fuel injectors,Valve adjustment,Genuine Mercedes shift bushingsSway bar Bushing kit,Genuine Mercedes radiator hosesNew OEM exhaust system shipped from Germany, ItalyNew steering idler arm and bushings,New steering linkage and damper,New Bilstein Shocks in FrontNew Brake pads all aroundNew Rotors and E-brake shoes in rearNew Charcoal canisterBosch Fuel filters,Oil Filter,Air Filter,


Rebuilt, repaired: (retaining original parts)Automatic antenna unit,HVAC Blower unit, had blower out. Had bulkhead inspected and drains checked, no rustA/C compressor wiring, RelayA/C recharge with R-12, no leaks. HVAC system intact and works excellently!Replaced all dash lamps with German OEM parts,Cleaned fuel lines, evap and return linesFuel system checked, no leaks
Had the engine sorted by local classic Mercedes specialist. Compression is good, no vacuum leaks, no drips ever, runs and shifts excellent.Vacuum powered locks all work and hold vacuum. Everything works on this car, even the original Becker Audio radio with original speakers, dash clock works. Everything is original, even has original German Pirelli Metric spare tire ( I wouldn't use it though), Tool Kit, Roadside safety kit, towing kit, Mercedes Owners Manual, and service records from Germany before it was imported in 1986. With the original low profile euro spec bumpers, the only parts that were Americanized are the headlights and the Speedometer, everything else is still in German, even the owners manual. Still has original Mercedes camel hair floor mats. Interior carpet shows fading from age, but the folding soft top has been replaced and fits very well, with clear vinyl windows. I have the hard top as well, it is all original good shape with a small ding in the trim. I am the third owner and the car has been repainted one time in matching Astral Silver. I have the data card for this car, it was ordered without the 280sl emblem on the boot, and ordered with heated seat. As you can see the interior is in very good shape for its age, the one noticeable flaw is the tear in the drivers seat cloth. I have documented the couple areas of rust on the body in the photos. The underside shows some surface corrosion, but has been pretty well preserved and has no major rust issues. This car has obviously been well cared for before me, and I have kept it garaged and never driven during harsh weather. This car is driven weekly when good weather permits, parked in heated/cooled garage with cover, not driven in rain. This car is very rare in the US. Make me a serious offer.
