1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL

  • Year: 1971
  • Make: Mercedes-Benz
  • Model: 280SL
  • Type: Convertible
  • Exterior Color: Red 576
  • Interior Color: Parchment
  • Mileage:

We’re always joking that the cars seem to show up in pairs. We had the two-owner ‘501’ Orient Red 250SL come into the shop just a few days ago and it’s been followed in by this ‘576’ Red 280SL from 1971! Both are great examples of the multitudes of W113s still being cared for. 

While the 250SL is incredibly original and very well preserved, this 280SL is more of a driver, with the four speed manual aside from the rare manual, this one also features the fold-down rear seat and a cigarette lighter in the center console rather than on the dashboard. 

It also has the eye-catching Parchment interior. We’ll be working on an assortment of items, including some interior restoration. We just pulled the engine and gave it a thorough detail and clean before getting the mechanicals all sorted. We also have the engine bay down to bare metal for a heavy detail/repaint. Stay tuned for more.
