This Mercedes 280 SL is offered for sale as a restoration project.
It starts on the key, stops, and drives.
Oil pressure is good, the exhaust is slightly noisy near the manifold.
The car has been off the road for about 6 years
In that time the paintwork has badly faded, so would require a complete respray as well as some remedial work to the body.
The car appears to be pretty straight, with no apparent signs of previous bodywork repairs.
You could replace 2 to 4 panels, or repair with new metal.
The bulkhead and engine bay is solid and original.
All the floors are good. The front o/s front part of the chassis will require a small amount of welding to secure the anti-roll bar.
The interior is fair,in fact the seats are pretty good, but does require new carpets.
There are no cracks on the top of the dashboard.
There are a few tears in the hood.
The rear heated screen is a bit milky.
There is no MOT
I have the V5 registered in my name
It comes with 1 door key, and 1 ignition key.
