1968 Mercedes-Benz W113 280SL with Black Leather (271)

Siver Grey with Black Leather (271) / 280SL


Principal Facts:

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.

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?
