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, aside from mileage is the 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 passed away two years prior. 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. 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!
