1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda (W113) Automatic
Grey Blue (906) with Black MB Tex Interior
2 Owners from New
Grey Blue is the original colour with which this Pagoda left the factory back in 1968, a colour that’s rare to find on a Pagoda and one that suits the shape of the car just perfectly.
Benefitting from refreshed paintwork and a sympathetically restored interior, this 280SL Auto is ready to be used and enjoyed. With new wood and chrome, new seats and new carpets inside, the cabin is a delightful place to sit. Many have waxed lyrical about the exterior aesthetics of the Pagoda and how it’s one of the most beautiful cars to made, but the real thrill comes from sitting behind the wheel.
A 280SL heads down the road with enthusiasm, is more than capable of showing modern traffic a thing or two and when well cared for is a competent international cruiser. Modern conveniences such as power steering, good heaters, ample lighting and superb handling make the Pagoda a favourite amongst classic car connoisseurs.
This is one fine looking Pagoda that drives exactly as a Pagoda should. With the rare blue coachwork and matching hardtop, this is a versatile classic car looking for a new owner to cherish and enjoy it.
Receipts accompanying the car detail the refreshed interior, with significant spending taking place in the early 2000s and then in 2011/2012. Since then the car has covered just a few thousand miles, and is now ready to be used and enjoyed more regularly. The perfect summer companion in a really lovely colour.
