Known History

The 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster featured here is finished in red with a wonderful black interior, matching black folding convertible top and a red removable hardtop. This particular example was sold new through Maloney Motor Co. in Canton, Ohio and was acquired by the second owner in 1975 who would own and maintain the Mercedes-Benz for more than 40 years. This classic Mercedes-Benz SL has only traveled 14,624 miles from new and presents wonderfully with lots of originality. Powered by its numbers matching engine and automatic gearbox, this example is accompanied by an incredible array of documentation including the original window sticker, pre-delivery inspection, warranty plate, original books and tools.

HISTORY OF THE 280SL

The 113 Mercedes-Benz platform was introduced in the summer of 1963 with the 230SL. Designed to continue the SL line from the iconic 190SL and the legendary 300SL, the new 113 SL provided a sporty driving experience with an adequate level of comfort. The iconic “Pagoda” shape was defined by the removable hardtop and aluminum boot that concealed the convertible top when not in use. While the large chrome grill and three pointed star in the front harked back to the previous generation of SLs, customers were enamored with the newly introduced fuel injected inline-six cylinder engine, excellent handling suspension and powerful brakes. The 280SL was first assembled in December 1967 and marked the third and final iteration of the 113 chassis. With an upgraded 2.8 liter 195 horsepower engine, the 280SL transitioned the 113 chassis from a sporty two-seater to a finely appointed, adequately powered sports roadster. In the U.S., most 280SLs received a factory 4-speed automatic transmission. Considered by some Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts to be the last classic SL, the 280SL has become a highly sought-after automobile by both collectors and motoring enthusiasts.
