Description for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1969

The "Pagoda” SL model evolution progressed through to the final 2. 8-liter 280SL produced between December 1967 and February 1971. While changes heralded by the 280SL in addition to the additional torque of its larger engine were largely detail-oriented in nature. The model’s significant power reserve and superior all-around driving flexibility captivated the motoring press. Today. the 280SL continues as the most popular and usable evolution of the “Pagoda” SL line. remaining a highly stylish classic car that is entirely capable of being driven and enjoyed even in today’s challenging driving conditions. thanks to its excellent handling and performance. This 1969 280 SL in Dark Red Brown with Cognac interior. automatic transmission Roadster is the most desirable of the “Pagoda” series and has had a recent and serious restoration.

With an engine out overhaul. down to bare metal paint job. complete and most desirable new MB Tex interior and all new bright work. this Roadster is ready to show. drive. and enjoy. The collectability of these classic Mercedes is on the rise!
