1969 Mercedes-Benz W113 280SL with Cream Beige (304)

Medium Blue Metallic (387) with Cream Beige (304) / 280SL


Principal Facts:

Mercedes-Benz 280SL in Blue Metallic (387) with Navy Blue Soft Top, matching Hard Top and Cream Beige (304) interior.

Over the course of more than 18 months, this 280SL Pagoda was restored to exceptional levels, with as many original panels retained as possible to ensure authenticity of the data card. All mechanical components have been stripped, refurbished where necessary and replaced before the vehicle was correctly setup for driving.

SLSHOP’s engine setup regime ensures the fuel pressures and injection systems are optimised for on the button starts in all temperatures. Similarly, the ride is adjusted to give the refined grand tourer glide, but with a firmness that enables spirited cornering when desired. The throttle is sharpened to provide proper responsiveness.

This vehicle was sold prior to listing in January 2023. For similar examples pending arrival at SLSHOP, contact [email protected]

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?
