In 1963, Mercedes-Benz introduced the 230 SL on their sporty new W113 roadster chassis, replacing the classic 300 SL and 190 SL models of the 1950s. By 1968 the 280 SL was delivered with an even more powerful 2.8- liter inline six-cylinder engine that was a big hit with the American market. A true survivor, this 2-seat open Mercedes is wonderfully original and fully prepared for your enjoyment.

Look closely, as this 1970 280 SL is a show-quality example of the model series, and with a documented 44 year ownership by a dedicated enthusiast, this 280 SL was obviously treated to the care necessary to maintain it in excellent original condition, and it is offered with just 7,134 miles showing. It is, of course, delivered with the removable Pagoda hardtop, factory air conditioning, and the pure joy of owning a fine Mercedes sports car.
