1969 Mercedes-Benz W113 280 SL with Black Leather

Anthracite Silver with Black Leather / 280 SL


Principal Facts:

This 1969 Mercedes SL Pagoda was sold before going live. In completely original condition and extremely low mileage, this Pagoda was truly special.

Here’s an extract from an article about this low mileage Mercedes SL Pagoda:

”Finished in 180G Silver/Grey Metallic, with black MB Tex upholstery and a black soft top, ordered without rear-view mirrors or a stereo it’s simply stunning. The 1969 Mercedes SL Pagoda’s design arguably remains the pinnacle of crisp elegance and simple style adorned with modest embellishment. There are Teutonic sensibilities to its shape, the Pagoda an alternative in period to Jaguar’s E-Type, and while that Jaguar looks its vintage today, there’s a sophistication and even suave modernity to the SL, that’s evident both inside and out, even in 2020.

The seats, indulgently sprung, though lacking in anything in the way of body-hugging bolstering, are hugely comfortable. The MB Tex covering those seats is yielding and soft but also having an air or quality. MB Tex exudes an longevity not found with unrestored leather of a similar vintage. That pervading, weighty quality is what defines the SL, despite what the letters actually stand for, it a trait pretty much unique to the marque even here on its sporting flagship.

That is evident on the road. Yes, there’s an inherent, obvious reluctance to put any miles on it, but so too is there the need to. Machines only work well if they’re allowed to work as they’re designed to, after all. The SLSHOP regularly exercises this Pagoda to ensure it’s at its best, and that’s obvious as it fires on the first turn of the key, the 2.8-litre in-line six-cylinder engine revving with a smooth eagerness that gives it performance that in its day would have been considered brisk, rather than properly quick. Rated at 170PS at 5,750rpm, with its peak torque also high up the rev range, it’ll cover the benchmark 0-62mph sprint in 9 seconds, and in its motherland it’ll reach a 124mph maximum speed.”

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?
