1970 MERCEDES BENZ 280SL Vintage Mercedes Benz like this expertly maintained 1970 280 SL is the perfect combination of old-world luxury and universal appeal. It has been owned, garage kept and routinely maintained by a prominent 83 years young lady in Newport Beach California for almost all of it's years. Fast, competent, luxurious, stylish, and built to last, they are the choice of classic car collectors who like to both show their cars and drive them on a weekend getaways. This two-seater roadster/coupe was produced from 1963 through 1971. The 280SL had a distinctive slightly concave hardtop, hence the name Pagoda. This roadster has its original soft-top and the original removable Pagoda hardtop and original removal tool. It is equipped with an inline 2.8L six-cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection. The odometer shows 32016 miles. This rock solid 280 SL is about as close to driving a brand new 48-year-old luxury car as you can get. This two top 280 SL is an incredible find! This stunning 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda featured here with 2 tops is available in its original color, Signal (Fire Engine) Red, with Cognac Leather interior, and original matching cognac color soft top. It comes equipped with an automatic transmission, power steering, air conditioning, Becker stereo radio, solid steel chromed wheels, with newer tires (original hubcaps are included in the trunk). The engine bay shows nice, but also shows you that it's a nice driver quality car and not a trailer queen in the six-figure range. It comes with spare tire, tire cover, jack, owners manual and extensive service records with existing odometer miles confirmed by the service records as well. Powerful brakes, radial tires and wide chassis gives this 280SL great handling. The front grille has the dominant three-point star centered between Bosch fishbowl headlights. This model has a rigid passenger compartment and designated crumple zones with impact absorbing front and rear sections. This was the first sports car with a safety body and interior corner. All panels including doors, trunk and hood lineup and fit well. The dash is nicely preserved and the instruments are clear. The original seats are very nice with no tears or stains. The undercarriage is original and shows very slight wear. The disc brakes are responsive ensuring the car will stop straight. This rare find is finished in great colors and should give great driving pleasure to its new owner in a car that is a rare find and coveted by any Mercedes Benz owner. ***If you are viewing this on Facebook Marketplace, be sure go to our website to view all photos.
