1970 Mercedes 280SL Pagoda /// The Best We've Seen For Sale
FOR SALE: Immaculately presented and matching numbers, the best we’ve seen.
Sandy Beige Metallic paintwork, Dark Brown MB-Tex, Soft-top in dark brown, 4-Speed automatic transmission, Whitewall tyres, Becker Europa radio, Dash clock, Spare wheel with cover, Rubber boot mat, Cigar lighter, Ash tray, Mercedes tool kit.
This example is in amazing original condition and when purchased by the current owner he wanted to go the extra mile to make the car perfect. A complete strip-down and bare metal repaint were commissioned a couple of years ago and pleasingly the car was found to be completely rust and accident-free. There are hundreds of photographs documenting the SL’s original condition and the huge amount of work that went into the now flawless finish. The car was carefully reassembled and any items showing any wear were replaced. The result is simply breathtaking, and one of the best paint finishes we have ever seen. Lots of these cars begin as rusty restoration projects that often lose their original charm; this is the perfect blend of a well-maintained example that has been sympathetically taken to an extremely high standard.
The dark tobacco coloured interior is the perfect match with the glistening metallic gold paintwork. Again, all very original and in outstanding condition. There is no damage or wear to the seats or carpets, and everything works as it should.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The Pagoda has been in regular use and completed several weekend driving trips without fault. All mechanicals were examined in fine detail by SS Motors in Weybridge and so it drives like a dream. Some of the recent work included new fuel injectors, fuel lines, a fuel pump, water pump, fuel tank, and a full service.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The Mercedes wheel trims are in perfect condition and the white wall tyres were replaced last year. The brakes are in fine working order and the suspension has recently been overhauled with many new parts.
The History File includes the owner’s manual, original sales brochure, factory data card, and Date of Manufacture letter from Mercedes. The extensive paperwork is complete with all recent invoices detailing the above-mentioned work carried out; these are further backed up with a raft of detailed photographs.
