1982 Mercedes 280SL Convertible - £34,995

Offered for sale we have an exceptionally smart R107 Mercedes SL280 with just 5 previous owners (one for 28 years) and a little over 80,000 miles on the clock. This R107 280SL roadster is unusual not only because of its low mileage and beautiful condition, but also because it is equipped with a factory five-speed manual gearbox. The vast majority of Sl’s of this era were fitted with an automatic gearbox making the manual a very sought after vehicle. The cars red paint (DB519) bares very few marks and the included removal hardtop is in similarly good condition. Also worth noting is the soft top which was recently replaced and remains in as new condition. The interior is black tex and is almost unmarked. 

The car has a comprehensive history file with its original service booklet complete with 17 stamps along with numerous invoices and bills, 32 old MOT certificates and tax disks. We also have 2 keys available for the car. Recently the car has made up part of an impressive private classic Mercedes collection and in July last year took part in North Coast 500- a 516 mile road trip across Scotland without missing a beat. We are reliably informed that within a 2 week period the car covered over 1,500 miles without missing a beat.
