1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda (W113) #2217 Silver with Black Leather
Silver Grey with Black Leather Interior
73,116 original miles
A Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda with Automatic gearbox is widely regarded as the pinnacle of classic motoring, and silver is the iconic Pagoda colour.
Finished in Silver Grey (180G) with Black Leather and a Black Hardtop, this car is an excellent example of a well cared for Pagoda.
Showing a verified odometer reading of 73,116 miles, the service history and paperwork paint a picture of a car that has been sparingly used for three decades. Over the last thirty years this car has covered just over 15,000 miles, or around 500 miles per year. It has recently been recommissioned after a short period of inactivity, having been in storage since 2014. Prior to this the car enjoyed more than 25 years in active duty, with the MOT and mileage history painting a picture of a well cared for, well maintained and sparingly used Pagoda.
Paperwork on file dates back to the late 1980s, including an almost complete MOT certificate history back to the earliest one dated 1989. The original service manual is present, along with a photocopy of the original datacard.
Cosmetically this car is beautiful inside and out, owing to a recent comprehensive respray and refurbished seats and door cards. Much of the originality of this car is present, further evidence that it has enjoyed only careful and caring owners for the span of it’s 52 years.
This car represents a fantastic opportunity for a new custodian to cherish this car in the same way previous owners have – a car that’s sure to bring joy to any household and be the envy of onlookers at any classic car show you should might wish to attend. Not one to be missed.
