Known History

This 280SL Pagoda with the rare 4-speed manual gearbox was delivered new in Switzerland. Unable to order a sports coupé from Mercedes at that time, the client ordered an SL with the “California” option instead, meaning a cabriolet without soft top, but a (removable) hardtop in its place. As an added bonus this version also offered an occasional seat at the back. In 1999 the SL received an engine overhaul. The Mercedes has been with one owner since 2009 and in recent years was treated to a new paintjob. The interior is in original condition with the respective patina. The last Swiss Veteran MOT was completed in May 2014.
