1975 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class1975 Mercedes Benz 280SL R107 Roadster
Imported in 1983 to the US by an army soldier based in Alabama. He imported the car and returned it to his home in South Carolina where it lived for many years before being sold to a gentleman in PA, near Erie where he enjoyed the car for the last 15 years caring for it, and bringing it to car shows and events, never removing the hardtop. We acquired the car recently from him due to his suffering back issues and not able to get in and out of the two seater SL easily anymore. He spoke often of driving the SL to Florida and back once without a hiccup and said he would do it again if he was able, that is how confident he was in this little 280SL.
