1969 Mercedes Benz

Story and History

1969 Mercedes Benz 280SL - Restored condition

A superb example presented here, which we are proud to offer for sale

Prior to our tenure this vehicle had but one family ownership from new and was in completely original condition retaining the same paint colour and interior that she had when delivered new - cars like this always have an appeal to us

Complete with all books and papers, as one would hope and expect from a one owner car, she was in lovely original condition

We have thoroughly enjoyed some extensive use in her and indeed shortly after purchase we took her on a run down to Paris, and back, where she acquitted herself admirably, on the motorway and also in heavy traffic, in both Paris and London too

When we came to remove the hard top and put her soft top up we found that this was also the original unit - although in such a tired, albeit usable, condition it encouraged us to bite the bullet and send her into the works for a comprehensive overhaul

As always we did more than anticipated but safe to say she is now resplendant in fresh paint, new leather interior, new mohair soft top, new hard top headlining, new tyres, refurbished wood veneers, new sundym glass all round including the hard top, top end overhaul and etc

Pictures so far with soft top up - we still have a few areas of detailing finishing to complete, but hopefully these images convey the quality of this lovely Pagoda accurately
