About This Car

1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda (W113) Triple Black

Black (040) with Black Leather (241) and Black Soft Top (740)

A wonderfully presented ‘Triple Black’ car with black coachwork, black interior and black soft top.

Just arrived into stock.

This is 1968 280SL is a rare car indeed. Right Hand Drive cars aren’t easy to find in good condition, and the black coachwork makes this an even more alluring find.

The previous owner cared for this car for almost 30 years, a car that he’d known for more than four decades. Now showing just 50,000 miles on the odometer, the majority of these miles have been covered in the last 15 years.

Recently this car has benefited from a significant amount of expenditure, including new front lights, front grille and front bumpers, all of which were genuine Mercedes-Benz parts.

A large amount of documentation accompanies this car, including receipts and paperwork dating back to the early 1980s.

Although an optional extra for American market cars, whitewall tyres were rare in all other markets. It will be up to the new owner of this car to decide which direction aesthetically they prefer to move the car.

This car is the ideal base for a customer looking for a car that can be enjoyed immediately with a longer term plan of achieving absolute Pagoda perfection.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?

Bulkhead Corrosion

Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour - the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.

All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
