1970 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Automatic


Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Automatic

New price! Now available at 27.500 EUR!

The Mercedes-Benz W113 automobiles were produced from 1963 through 1971. They were sold as the "pagoda roof" SL Class. The W 113 replaced the W 198 SL-Class in 1963 and was replaced by the R107 SL-Class in 1972.

All models boast an inline six-cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection using a mechanical pump system adapted from the diesel motors. All are rear-wheel drive, but are also equipped with independent rear suspension, a feature that greatly improved road handling. Most of these early SLs were sold with both the removable hard top and a soft top in the so-called "Coupe/Roadster" configuration, but there was also a "California Coupe" version available that came with the removable hardtop but no soft top. In these models, the soft top well (between the passenger compartment and trunk) is removed, and a drop-down bench seat is installed in its place. The rear seat is small and not very useful, so these 2+2 models are rare but not especially sought after today. While the SLs are relatively heavy compared to other similar roadsters, weight was reduced in part by the use of aluminum panels for the trunk lid, front hood, tonneau cover and door skins. There were a 230 SL (July 1963−January 1967), a 250 SL (December, 1966−January, 1968) and a 280 SL (December 1966-January 1971).

The 2.8 liter 280 SL was introduced in 1967 and continued production largely unchanged through 1971 when the W 113 was replaced by the entirely new, and substantially heavier, R 107 350 SL/450 SL. Most 280 SL cars built for the U.S. market were equipped with automatic transmission. Manual transmission cars came with either a 4-speed tramsmission or a ZF-5 speed. In the European market manual transmission cars were still dominant. 23.885 280 SLs were produced, of which 12,927 units went to the USA.

This car was originally registered in Germany, at 30 June 1970. But, as it was'nt quickly in Germany the car was sold to The Netherlands where it was registered at 5 August 1971. The car has old Dutch papers and a recent restoration. The car is fitted with a new interior and engine is completely done by a real enthusiast. Only 5.000 kms since. The car is good running and there's also a hard top with the car. The car is in a lovely seventies colour!
