The SLSHOP knows this car well, as it remains one of the first ever SL280s to be serviced and maintained by the SLSHOP.
Late model 1971 example, one of the final cars to be sold in the UK.
Few miles on the clock, a prominent restoration carried out in the past, and a beautiful overall condition.
This is a good driving Pagoda, with a brand new re-upholstered leather interior, with a stunning new protective wrap which can be removed as per the new owners wishes.
As can be seen in the supplied photos, the 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL is in great condition, mechanically as well as aesthetically.
Delivered in the December of 1971, this SL must've been one of the final cars to be sold in the UK, as the sales of the next-generation R107 SL had begun already.
It was bought by popular jockey Derek Ancil for his wife, who reported to have used it until her demise. Thereafter, the car was stored in a barn for 10 years, and subsequently brought back to a useable standard in the hands of a Rolls-Royce specialist.
The next owner lovingly and painstakingly worked on the engine, body, paintwork, and chrome; who later passed the car onto his son.
The current keeper bought the car from the SLSHOP and while impressed by how it drove and felt, he wanted the interior to be recommissioned in leather by the SLSHOP and matched to the original colour, which was completed recently in 2023. Due to the high quality of the reupholstery project, this set the current owner back £25,159.
The original shade of Tunis Beige Metallic was also recently covered under a protective wrap via the world famous Topaz Detailing of London, at a cost of £6,552.
In conclusion, this is a highly desirable W113 Pagoda that's great to drive, looks immaculate, and comes with a detailed history to back it up.
