Description for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1970

1970 Mercedes Benz 280SL

Convertible with soft top & hard top.

The Mercedes that seems to be one of the favorites for collectors these days is the 280SL roadster series.

The 1970 Mercedes 280SL roadster in this eBay ad has the two tops.This particular 280SL is a European model with the European headlights (a lot sexier than the American version headlights) and supposedly with the extra European horse power.

The car has been repainted beautifully in the original factory born light beige color.The interior has been redone in the original style material and color. The car comes with the original jack.Original manual.The radio is not original but has been replaced with a high end European radio.

The 58,000 km (36039 miles) on the odometer is believed to be original and correct.The car is not known to have any accidents and the cosmetics are about eight years old and excellent.

The original 2.8 litre overhead cam engine pulls very strongly and the clutch and transmission work just as they should.Yes!This car even comes with a copy of the Mercedes data card.The underside is very tidy and the soft top is in fine condition.Once and only once the car was taken up to 120 mph and then brought back to speed limits just to see what it could do…and it never missed a beat.

The Mercedes 280SLs are considered to be one of the last and most fully hand built Mercedes.Everybody loves the hardtop that is known as the Pagoda hardtop.The car has the correct thin white walls and beautifully painted hubcaps with chrome disks that really set off the car.

If you are looking for a highly sorted out 280SL that has received much love and even comes with the details such as the original jack, original manual and original data card and a fantastic color scheme…this could be the car that you are looking for!

Mercedes 280SL in this condition are popular all over the world.

Keep in mind that in the last 40 years this car has only seen rain once when caught by surprise otherwise it has been extremely pampered.

Note: this European model does not have the corner lights that some think distracts from the American version.It has always been professionally maintained.This is a car that you can bid to win and be happy that you did.

The reserve is very low (please don’t ask).

The "notches" are on both front fenders as they have never been hit or damaged.
The radio was replaced with a German BLAUPUNKT radio that works fine.
One non original feature is that the speakers are fairly new (proper speakers) but mounted up under the dash rather than on the front doors. We think that this is MUCH better for sound.
The heater controls have been replaced with proper metal levers to replace the hard rubber originals which often break.
