We are very lucky to have this absolutely beautiful Mercedes 280 SL Convertible available for sale. This Car is an absolute joy to drive, and is very pleasing to the eye. A real Classic which will no doubt continue to appreciate in value over time with care. It's a very reluctant sale by the former keeper, who viewed dozens of examples before purchasing this Car. It is finished in the very rare California Red paintwork, and has contrasting Chrome exterior fittings, and has a full black leather interior with the walnut dash. This comes with the very rare factory body colour hard top, which still has the original supplying dealer stickers in the window, and is very easy to remove and place onto the Car. The Soft top is finished in Black and works as it should. The tyres are all as new and the wheels have recently been fully refurbished to original condition. This is one of the best examples we have seen, and is as a work in progress as near to completion as you will find. Mechanically it starts every time, and has had a lot of work carried out by the previous keeper. It's MOT is current and active and expires in December 2021. The Car comes complete with a ring binder full of paperwork including the original 1985 PDI document and book pack from Mercedes Benz UK - Alan Day. It also has it's original service book from 1985. This is a low owner example (compared with most) and has just 3 former keepers from new. It's specification includes: Front Wash Wipe - Headlights, Front fog lights, Factory Hard Top, Chrome Bumper and Mirror Trims, Full Leather Interior, Walnut Dash, Automatic Transmission, Electric Windows, Power Steering, Rev Counter, Leather Steering Wheel, Modern Kenwood CD Player with Digital Display, Parking Lights, The Engine is the 2.7 litre 6 Cylinder with 185 BHP. Its a real cruiser, and you will not be disappointed by the ride. Recent works by the previous keeper: Brand new Indicator Stalk - Sourced from Mercedes Germany, New brakes and discs from Mercedes, New propshaft coupling, new throttle linkage, Works carried out to suspension and anti roll bar, Two brake lines also replaced, brakes bled and brake fluid renewed. Tyres are as new, and wheels have been freshly refurbished to as new condition.
