1983 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL – outstanding condition with £15,000 recent spend
£19,995

Finished in Petrol Metallic with contrasting black hood, it’s no wonder this car presents so well; its arrived with a recent refresh totalling circa £15,000 included new wings, sills, front grille and a full respray including the accompanying hardtop. The light beige interior presents well and appears to be original, bar the addition of a modern stereo, newly added rear seat option and rear seat belts (fitted at a cost of £700). For the finishing touch its riding on a smart set of 14” Mexican Hat wheels.
Under the bonnet looks equally good, with 24 stamps in the service booklet documenting a careful and correct maintenance programme, along with the complete bookpack and a considerable collection of receipts and records, including a time with The SL Shop.
These 2.8 straight-six engines are known to be bulletproof, and can go forever; showing 53,000 miles on the clock it was subject to a documented speedo change at 70,000, giving a respectable total mileage of 123,000 miles or ave 3,000 per year.
These perennially stylish R107’s continue their steady rise in value with 280’s gaining popularity over the last few years and fewer examples in this condition coming to market.

Will be supplied with a fresh MOT.
