As mentioned this SL has had one repaint since new (about 10 years ago) in single stage paint and in its correct Factory Color.
The Exterior Paint is in very nice condition with few if any flaws.
The door, hood and trunk jambs are still the Original Factory paint. This 280SL has absolutely perfect panel fitment and gaps throughout and has no evidence that it has ever experienced any body damage.
It is all Original sheet metal.
The factory rivets show along the edge of the inner fenders along hood area and the small factory indentations by the headlight bezels are clearly visible.
The rockers, quarters and floor pan and chassis are all rust free and solid as one would expect from a low mile, dry Original California car. There is hardly even a jack ding or crease on the floor pans.
It even has what appears to be the Original Factory installed Exhaust system!!
All the Exterior brightwork, chrome and emblems appears to be original to the car and are in very respectable condition.
The rear bumper has one small dent on the upper passenger side above the exhaust tailpipe and that is the only exterior fault we could find.
We wont get into the discussion on how that happened by our staff but will assist the new owner (if its an overseas buyer) in getting that replaced or repaired and replated.
The Alloy Wheels have Factory correct tires (185R14) and the spare tire along with Jack appear to be Original.
The glass is all in great condition and it still has it Original Factory Windshield.
The Interior is all Original to the car and is in very presentable condition given its age.
The Seats and Door Panels do not have any rips or tears which is remarkable after almost 50 years of existence but testify to the low mileage of this 280SL.
The carpet even appears Original to the car.
The wood trim along the inner edge of the windshield and the wood on the center console are all in great shape.
The dash pad is in great shape!
The Dash Bezels and trim pieces all gleam like new.
The Dealer installed Mercedes Benz Fridiking Air Conditioning comes with its Original Bill of Sale and Warranty/Operating Book and information.
The AC blows cool but not cold.
The Factory Radio is not operating.
The Interior lights work along with the glove box light.
The horn, gauges, tach, speedo, signal lights all operate as they should.
Long appreciated for its timeless style and excellent driving dynamics, this Mercedes-Benz 280SL is both a valuable collector's car and a very satisfying one to drive.
Mercedes-Benz marketed this car as "the sum total of everything the Mercedes-Benz engineers have learned about high-performance sporting machinery."
Four decades later the 280SL represents the finest convertible ever made by Mercedes-Benz.
This Dry, Solid, Low Mile California 280SL drives out beautifully, starts with the first turn of the key, shifts and handles as it should, steers straight and has a quiet and smooth ride.
It is truly a remarkably preserved 280SL.
It is certain to be both a great investment and also a proud addition to anyones Classic Car collection.
