UK RHD 280SL manual for sale
« on: February 08, 2024, 17:34:54 »
A few months ago we were asked to retrieve this car from where it had lain for 20 years.
The engine was seized but the bodywork was excellent; almost as if it had just been restored prior to being abandoned.
We've rebuilt and detailed the engine. overhauled the brakes and fuel system and she's now in a position to be driven or we can press on with the cosmetics.
We're inviting expressions of interest at this stage.
Sadly the luggage that's listed in the option codes is missing!

A rare bird: great restoration candidate RHD model, ready for decisions. Good luck on the sale and let us know the extent of your eventual work on it.

Update: she now runs and drives beautifully. Question is whether to continue with a new interior or sell as is.
Ideally I’ll find a buyer who wants me to finish it.
