Now Available: 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL w113 Pagoda with 82k miles, Signal Red w/ new black soft and color-matched hard top after recent work and restoration.

This 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL was one of the first of 1970 as manufactured in November of 1969 and sold on Feb 20th 1970 by Mercedes-Benz Dealer #05723 located in Southern California.  It spent the first 48 years registered in the state of CA until sold at auction in Arizona in 2018 to a collector from Dallas. The car was then acquired by the current owner in the summer of 2019. It shows 82k miles believed to be original and is currently finished in Signal Red over a Black MB-Tex interior.

The factory exterior color was originally 050G White.  The car was later repainted Signal Red (DB-568 H), a correct color for the W113 Pagodas from 1963 through 1971. The sale includes a 568 Signal Red color body-matched removable hardtop in excellent condition, 14” wheels with new Michelin Energy tires with chrome wheel covers featuring matching Signal Red centers, as well as US-market lighting and bumpers and a new black convertible soft top along with new springs and seals, installed in December of 2019 as part of the recent work and restoration.

Power is from a 2.8-liter inline-six cylinder, four stroke upgraded for the 280 M130 engine mated to a four-speed manual transmission and fuel injection.

The interior is trimmed in 131 black with matching black carpets and door panels. The car is equipped with the correct center wood console, black accents, and wood trim on the dashboard. The two-spoke steering wheel features a metal horn ring with black center and fronts a Signal Red dashboard housing factory instrumentation, climate controls, a Becker stereo with new rear speakers, and original analog clock.  The car came original with factory air-conditioning and is prepared for it however the original unit is not present, but could be easily added.

Recent service and maintenance work includes repair and replacement of gas tank vapor fuel hoses and seal ring, replacement of oil pan, filter and drain plug, a tune up including replacement of ignition condenser, points and plugs, greasing and adjustment of front wheel bearings, replacement of shifter bushings, replacement of brake booster lines, new battery cables and terminals, replacement of heater control levers, addition of a remote antenna and new rear speakers, repair of the exhaust system and pipes, and re-work of rear and brake lights, fuses and wiring.

Recent trim work included securing, touch up and/or replacing wood dash trim, outside mouldings, soft top lid fabric, windshield and other rubber, window and door trim, seals and gaskets, rework of back of seats, shoulder harness seat belts, shifter carpet trim and shifter boot, cleaning of chrome and paint touch up.

This W113 is now offered for $75,000 with two keys, soft and hard top tools, recent service and restoration records, tool kit including pouch, lug wrench and jack, factory literature, a clean InstaVIN report, and a clean Texas title.

Pick up available in Dallas, TX, USA.  Shipping can be arranged to US or internationally with a variety of methods available.

I am so very sorry.  I thought I would get a notice when someone replied and when I did not, forgot to check.  Please forgive me.  I have been out of town but got back last night and am here for the time being so let me know when is good for you.  Again, so sorry for the delay.

Chris

This was pulled from stock info I believe on this site or the MB site.  I thought I had changed it. thank you for the catch.

It had factory AC, but the unit was missing when I purchased it, so could be easily installed to have AC again if someone wanted.  While I have had it, I only use it with the top down on nice days so it never was an issue for me.
