1981 Mercedes-Benz 280SL EUROPEAN Model

Here is the chance to own one of the most beautiful roadsters that Mercedes-Benz ever made -1981 Mercedes Benz 280SL Roadster Convertible!

What makes this SL special, is that this is the TRUE EUROPEAN 6 Cylinder model, featuring more elegant and desirable short European Bumpers, and square one piece European Headlights!!!

280SL was a special production model, and limited number of cars were produced each year from 1974 until 1985, as majority of its siblings produced were V8 models. Out of 237,287 R107’s ever producedONLY25,436 were 280SL’s, and after 30+ years of life number of 280SL's on the road today is much much smaller!!!

Even though being inline 6, the engine delivers as much power as the US version V8’s, and being lighter car, its much more nimble and fun to drive in the city, and along the highway!!

About the car:

This SL was parked at a vacation home in Florida and very sporadically used over the past few years. It runs and drives good, but due to its limited use over past few years, and before any serious driving is done tune-up, fresh fluids and mehcanical lookover are in order.

It’s elegant Midnight (Dark) Blue paint (paint code #904 – dunkelblau) has a nice shine and luster, and it truly makes this German Roadster look timeless!! For a daily driver paint is in good condition, with some blemishes noticed upon closer inspection - mostly due to its age.

Chrome is in great condition, complete with healthy luster, and this beautiful roadster is a head turner and conversation piece everywhere it goes.

Undercarriage is all original, unmolested, and free of any kind of undercoatings except the factory one!

Factory VIN # stamping on the front radiator support is another sign of originality of this car. (Please see pictures)

This SL comes with both soft top, and the hard top! Dark Blue soft top operates with ease, but canvas is old and it will need to be replaced.

Hard top is in great condition including the headliner which is clean, and rips and tears free!! It is original numbers matching hard top to the car.

Its dark blue MB-Tex interior is in good condition and it is all complete. Seats are in great condition and they are very supportive and comfortable!

This Mercedes comes with power windows, and they are working as they should!

It comes with its Original German Owner’s manual and maintenance booklets. Maintenance booklet is FULL of timely service stamps from day one both in Germany and in USA when the car was imported!! (Please see pictures)

All in all, it’s a very nice, complete and unmolested European 280SL, which can easily be taken to the next level, or with some preventative maintenance enjoyed as it is and driven guilt free!
