1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda (W113) #2154
Signal Red with Black Leather
Between 2001 and 2010 this 280SL lived in the dry climate of Australia, with receipts on file showing general maintenance spend in line with a car that was regularly exercised.
In 2011 the car was subject to a £15,000 overhaul with a London based classic car restorer, including treatment of the shell and a complete repaint in Signal Red.
Further significant works took place in 2015. Almost £4,000 was spent preparing the car for a continental road trip, which included rebuilding the speedo & tachometer, refitting the roof, refitting window mechanisms and repairing operation, repairs to the wiring and replacement of all key fluids.
DVLA records to date show 5 former keepers, with the car changing hands in 1985, 1992 and twice in 2006. The car is now offered for sale on behalf of Mr W, who has enjoyed this car since 2006.
Mr W has cherished this car whilst always keeping it in fine mechanical fettle – this 280SL is no stranger to the roads between London and Le Mans, having made the trip almost every year since the car has been in his care.
This is a fine looking Pagoda in desirable colour combination, mechanically robust and ready to be used and enjoyed.
