This car is in the perfect specification being a Right Hand Drive Car fitted with an Maunl gearbox and power steering. Presented in its factory colour scheme of Silver with Black M B tex trim.
A very late production W113, this car was first registered in 1971, whilst little is known of its early history, the car was certainly used to its full potential having racked up a little over 40000 miles in the first 11 years. They’re incredibly usable cars even today, but back in 1971, they were miles ahead of the competition. The car was restored by an engineering company over 20 years, the work was clearly carried out to a very high standard,
The exterior of the car presents beautifully in its original colour of 180G Silver, the quality of the paintwork is very high, with just the odd age related mark. The chromework is in great shape. The car has its matching silver Hardtop which has been trimmed black inside. Fitted with period correct Michelin MXV-P Tyres which greatly improve the ride quality.
Inside the the seats, door cars and dash are still in the original Black MB-Tex and present wonderfully with minimal wear anywhere. The carpets, though not original spec are in great condition. The woodwork is in good original condition with lovely patina.
The engine bay of the car us very clean and tidy, although when it was restored it was decided to paint it black, despite being a factory Silver car. Being a very late car, unusual features such as an opaque plastic coolant expansion tank, are present and correct! In the boot, the spare wheel is covered by its original cover, with the original boot matt covering the boot floor.
We are absolutely delighted to offer to the market this outstanding and extremely rare pagoda 280 SL has the sunroof built into it. This car has been fully restored and has spent 20 years in a very well known collectors showroom/gallery. Everything is correct with this car in every way, from the spec to the colour scheme to the manual gear box, the 280 engine and not to mention the extremely rare hard top. This is a superb investment opportunity and at the same time you can go back in time and experience one of the most beautiful cars ever made, .going up every year
