What makes this vehicle truly worth owning is the level of detail and hand assembled craftsmanship that is present in no automobile currently produced. This magnificent motorcar was produced in an era when owning a Mercedes-Benz meant something significant. There was no such thing as a $299 a month lease on a new C-Class; ownership was reserved for just a select few. This vehicle was one of the most expensive and best overall vehicles available during its time. It combined the road holding ability of a sports car with the opulent appointments of the finest luxury cars. This was a vehicle for the most discerning individual to whom sacrificing any virtue of the vehicle for the sake of another was unacceptable.Setting this vehicle apart from all others, is the spectacularly low mileage, clean Carfax, and wonderful condition. There is not another example on the market that has had such extensive mechanical restoration done as for most of the examples, performing this level of work would not make financial sense. This example came to us from the son of the third owner who had owned it for over a decade and kept fantastic care of it but gave up her driver’s license due to old age and luckily for the next owner, caused her to sell it. To bring the vehicle to the standard that the vehicle otherwise is, we performed an extensive major service on the vehicle. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of, if not the best example of the coveted 280SL Mercedes available anywhere. Most of the other vehicles on the market have very high mileage, are well worn, have rust issues, do not have air conditioning, do not have a rear seat, or need thousands in basic service that almost all R107’s need (often the A/C doesn’t work, tires are old/dry rotted, top is torn or yellowed due to age, seals dry, fuel system gummed up from sitting, and the list goes on). This car has NONE of these common issues, which would cost a five figure sum to correct. This is as close to a turnkey example as any we have ever seen and will be sure to please the next owner for years to come! By not compromising on color, mileage, condition, or service the next owner will have made a solid investment by avoiding the normal service items and having a premium example that will be sure to appreciate as the years pass while yielding the utmost of enjoyment! Offered to the collector, enthusiast, or investor who appreciates the magnificent investment potential of this magnificent motorcar! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly amazing motorcar!
