Vehicle History Report

Vehicle Description

This absolutely stunning 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL is a red over tan example that was acquired by its current owner four years ago. Power is sent from a 2.8L inline-six to the rear wheels through a floor-shifted 4-speed automatic transmission. The car was repainted under previous ownership and an April 2017 service included a new soft top, rechromed bumpers, interior refreshment, remanufactured cylinder head, valve job with new seals, springs, intake and exhaust valves, and more. It wears Factory 14? steel wheels polished with body-colored covers. The tan convertible top was replaced in 2017.  The cabin was refurbished in April 2017 with a repainted steel dash, refinished wood paneling, new horn pad, rebuilt OEM Becker Europa II AM/FM radio, replacement shift gate, and more.  The fuel-injected 2.8L inline-six is mated to a 4-speed automatic gearbox. A top-end rebuild performed by Import Motors in Oakland California in November 2017 included a remanufactured cylinder head and valve job with new intake/exhaust valves, guides, seals, and springs. A fresh fan clutch, thermostat, battery, and more were installed.  

With values of W113's rising into the mid $100k's, now is the time to get your hands on well sorted example for $78,500.  Contact Matt at San Francisco Motorsports.  415-259-5553.  www.sfmotorsports.com
