1970 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL For Sale by Auction

H&H Classics Limited - Imperial War Museum, Duxford Auction Viewing Day: Tuesday 18th June 2019 Auction Day: Wednesday 19th June 2019 @ 13:00. Estimate: £50,000 - £60,000 Registration No:NJT539H Chassis No:11304412017958 MOT:February 2020 - Desirable 280 SL with automatic transmission and both hard and soft tops - Recent attention has included a re-spray and engine overhaul - Offered with a collection of invoices and service book plus M-B dating document Mercedes have been producing an SL (Sport Leicht) model or range of models since 1954 when the landmark 300SL was unveiled. The similarly styled, but mechanically unrelated, 190 followed in 1955, completing the first generation of cars. Their successor was the W113 series. The last of the line, the 280 SL, was launched in 1968. Blessed with the same effortlessly elegant Paul Bracq styling as its earlier siblings, it was powered by a new seven bearing crankshaft 2,781cc straight-six engine that developed 170bhp and 180lb ft of torque. The SL was equipped with all-round independent suspension - double wishbones and coil springs at the front and coil sprung swing axles at the rear. Braking was by power assisted on all corners and steering was by recirculating ball. The car's 'square' track gave notably sure-footed handling. Able to blur the divide between city streets and open roads with ease, the majority of 280 SLs were specified with four-speed automatic gearboxes and power assisted steering. Some 23,885 were made by the time production ceased in 1971, virtually half of which were exported to the USA. This popular W113 series of cars was replaced by the all new and substantially heavier R107 350SL/450SL range. The 280 SL on offer is a lefthand drive, automatic transmission 1970 example finished in the appealing combination of Silver bodywork and Black upholstery. Apparently supplied new to the US market, it was imported into the UK in 1990. Recent attention has included a body respray, engine overhaul, new carpets, gearbox service and the installation of a period radio at the cost of £390. `NJT 539H' is now being sold complete with hard and soft tops, service book, Mercedes-Benz dating document, collection of invoices, and an MOT valid into February next year. A chance to acquire a matching chassis and engine number example of the most desirable of all 113 series SLs.
