1968 Mercedes-Benz W113 280 SL with Black Leather

Signal Red with Black Leather / 280 SL


Principal Facts:

1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda (W113) #2154

41,772 miles

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.

I have followed SLSHOP with interest for some years now and recently took the plunge and purchased my dream car – they did not disappoint!
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Their communication was excellent and they kept me
informed every step of the way. Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase!

I have just purchased a 280SL from SLSHOP. I have already purchased several parts from SLSHOP and have found all members of staff most helpful and it is more like dealing with a club than a commercial enterprise I would highly recommend using SLSHOP for cars, parts and most importantly impartial advice.

They put up with my indecision, inexperience and last minute demands and my car is the best thing I’ve ever bought. The most impressive thing about them is the after care though. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they’ve given me the best advice to make sure I get the most out of my car. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them all?
