This breathtaking Mercedes was originally delivered to it's 1st owner

in 1971 who lived in Pasadena, California. The owner registered the car to

their business located at 2965 E. Colorado Blvd, Pasadena,California

The paperwork indicates the car was first sold by the Mercedes Benz Dealership

in Hermosa Beach, California at 25 Pacific Coast Highway, Carwell Corporation on March 10th, 1971

I purchased this very low, magnificently restored rare and last year of production 280SL

in 2009 and sold it to a wonderful South Florida family with 79,029 ACTUAL DOCUMENTED MILES.

In the past 8 years that they have owned this 280SL, they drove it LESS than 100 miles a year.

It has always been kept inside their climate controlled garage, never driven in the rain and the

brand new soft top has never seen the sun or rain.They have asked Garage Memories

to sell their beloved Mercedes because they travel so frequently, they just don't have the time to drive

and enjoy this car.

They have made sure that the car was started at least once a month and driven

a short distance in their residential neighborhood by one of their staff.

This car needs nothing. It is "Turn Key" and ready to drive any distance, any time, in complete

safety and comfort.

Tons of paperwork...here is a partial list...

Warranty book with metal ID plate (shows delivered on 03-10-1971)

Mercedes Benz original owner's manual with original case

Becker Europa Stereo original warranty book (in service 3-10-71)

Frigiking Original Warranty Book (in service 3-10-71)

Roadster original top manual booklet

1971 was the last year of production of the 280SL with only 526 cars produced for the United States.

Here are the number of cars that were produced for the worldwide market between 1967-1971

1967: 143 cars were produced and shipped to a few select dealers

1968: 6,930

1969: 8,047

1970: 7,935

1971: 830

The most desirable, most sought-after 280SL was the 1971 model.

By 1971 Mercedes had this model perfected...and that's why most want a 1971 model.

These cars had Power assisted disc brakes (all 4 wheels)

AM/FM Radio (this car has the Becker AM/FM & it works perfect)

It has ice cold Dealer installed Mercedes Benz Frigiking air-conditioning

The air-conditioning warranty book indicates it went into service on 3-10-1971.

This is one Mercedes that drives as good as it's Concours D "Elegance looks.

What about price?

280SL in this condition are selling from $85,000 to $150,000....and at a top Auction this car would

command a minimum selling price of $115,000 to $125,000...it's that nice.

Instead, we proudly choose to sell all of our cars to the worldwide audience of car collectors and car lovers

who love the opportunityto buy our cars without paying the 10% Buyer fees and high shipping costs as a

result of a "SpecialArrangement" with a few 'on auction site shippers.'

by a potential buyer. If they have the proper insurance and a valid Driver's license we letthem drive the car as well.

We sold our 1st vintage car on Ebay in March of 2000. Prior to that, for 40 years we sold almost every car through print media.

We never try to just"Make a sale"because a sale is usually a one time event. Instead, we do our best to

"Make a customer"because a customer is forever and that's a VERY good thing in business.

I would urge you to call me ASAP at(954) 873-6495and I will share with you our lowest possible price...we will NOT respond

to e-mails requesting this information and will only share this with a live voice on the phone.

If you have a car that is fully restored or completely original and in EXCELLENT condition, we would welcome to take your car in trade.

Hire an inspector or even better come in person. Guaranteed to be a "NODISAPPOINTMENT"

Every car we sell has to be special and unique...no "drivers" "Fixer Uppers" or "20 Footers" just the best of the best!

We love either near perfect "original" cars or cars restored with an "open checkbook" to perfection!

Weunderstand that many collectors who are buying a car like this are doing so for investment purposes

and do not want anyone else to know their final price of acquisition.

Whatever your choice, we will respect your decision. We never disclose to anyone what the final purchase priceis of any of the "GARAGEMEMORIES" we sell.

We have sold almost 1/2of a billion dollars ofVintagecarsthruEbaymotors.com.

The car will be made available for inspection by serious bidders throughout the auction.

Please e-mail us if you would like to see the car. If you prefer, we can arrange to have a qualified, independent, professional

mechanic perform a pre-purchase inspection for you (at your expense).



Payment acceptable is a bank wire transfer or a verified Bank Cashier's check.

Invest your money in something you just don't "Put in the Bank" but something you can "Drive to the bank and

anywhere else you might choose to do with your family & friends."

are still safe in your garage or warehouse&haven't evaporated into thin air!

Car collecting is a family thing...everyone around the world admires and loves these great vintage and collectible cars.

We have sold cars fromAustraliatoAlaska...FromChinatoSaudi Arabia.....FromManhattanto

Moscow....and the hobby keeps growing & expanding all the time.

Collector car insurance is dirt cheap...about $250-$300 a year for a quality collectible like this. and you can buy full coverage!

Due to this car's higher value, most likely $500-$600 a year.

They usually require a garage and not more than 2500-3000miles a year put on the car.

We recommend you only buy a car like this if you have a garage to keep it in.

We are urging you toPLEASEcome and inspect the car in person, drive it or to hire an expert inspector

We prefer you select & hire your own inspector.

As with all of our fine cars...we invite you and urge your personal inspection. If you see it....and drive it...you will buy it!
