1968 Mercedes-Benz W113 280 SL with Black MB Tex (171)

Grey Blue (906) with Black MB Tex (171) / 280 SL


Principal Facts:

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.

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?
