Owning a Mercedes SL gives a person a real driving enjoyment and pride of ownership. When these cars were first manufactured, Mercedes-Benz adhered to construction methods that resulted in a standard that was the envy of the automotive industry. Every Mercedes-Benz model shared a build quality second to none.
The 280SL was manufactured from 1968 until 1971, and a total of 23,885 units were produced during its production run. The SL was available in both 2-door Roadster and 2-door Coupe options. Producing 143 units in 1967, the SL soared in popularity, and by 1969, the most productive year, banked at 8,047 units manufactured and produced. A total of 12,924 models were available in the U.S. and 18,681 were exported models.
This 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL comes with Moss Green Metallic finish over Cognac MB-Tex with a beige soft top. Purchased and delivered in 1970 new, the owner is the same for over 47 years. The vehicle went through a complete restoration in 2015 (over $150,000 in receipts). Powered by its rebuild matching 2.8-liter inline-six (only 400 miles)paired to a new 4-speed automatic, this W113 is now being offered by Palm Beach Classics with its factory hardtop, a service history file, original books and accessories, Mercedes DataCard, and a clean Florida title.
