vehicle overview

1983 Mercedes Benz 280 SL Automatic. Signal red with cream sports check upholstery and black mohair soft top. This 280SL has been with its last owner for 9 years, he has used the car very sparingly and covered only 2,000 miles during his tenure and the SL has covered just 72,000 miles from new with twenty two old MoT's to back up the mileage. The car has been well maintained with a folder of bills and invoices showing that the car has been MOT'd by the same motor engineers over a nine year period. The bodywork is very good with no signs of any rust or paint bubbling as common on some SL's. The interior is the original sports check with no rips or tears and very little wear. The factory hard top is still with the car but does have a crack in the rear screen, however this can be easily replaced. On test drive the Mercedes performed well with a strong engine, good oil pressure and a smooth changing gearbox. A set of optional Mercedes alloy wheels are fitted and the car also has a pop out DVD player installed. Over the last few years the prices of R107 Mercedes' have rocketed so we believe that these cars are a good investment and properly serviced SL's will run and run. This car is in summary this is a very usable classic Mercedes that can be used daily or purely enjoyed at your leisure. We think this is a car that any enthusiast would be very proud to own. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Please contact us for any further information. Delivery can be arranged.
