Crevier Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster. Introduced in 1967, the 280SL wasproduced for four years with 23,885 units built. Over half of which made their way to the US. The new 2.8L fuel injected, overhead camshaft six cylinder engine produced the power the market had been craving, and with a top speed of 118mph, the 280SL married the comfort and reliability of Mercedes-Benz with the performance of a sports car.
This distinctive 280SL was sold new to its original owner and his wife by Hension Motor Car Company on October 4th, 1968. The original family owned the car from new until 2014, and the car is accompanied by a copy of its original invoice and data card from the factory, something seldom seen with Pagodas. Overall it has had just 3 owners from new. It was delivered in Dark Green (DB268), with Dark Green (244) leather upholstery and interior trim, and a matching cloth top and hard top. Just as we see it today. The car also features a correct Becker radio, and has brand new white wall tires that compliment its stately persona. The interior has been completely refinished and is undeniably lovely. It has been extensively restored the past few years by the original owners. The car has been beautifully maintained with panel fit, chrome, upholstery, and paint all in excellent condition. Few 280SL's can boast single family ownership for roughly 45 years present with such integrity. Its tasteful presentation only betters the appeal of the Pagoda. Remarkable history, as well as the quality of the restoration make this 280SL a standout and present a unique opprtunity for the next owner. Few collectibles offer the ease of use that has come to define the 280SL making it a true modern classic.
