We first saw this exceptional SL in 1996, when the original lady-owner from Rancho Mirage, California, gave it to her daughter here in Massachusetts, who was one of our customers. It only had 59,000 Miles at that time. In August of 1997, we sold it to one of our best customers, a well-known Mercedes collector. We then did a sympathetic survivor restoration to this car for him. This included installing a taller, re-built 3.27 Final-Drive Rear-Axle Differential. We also upgraded the original A/C System so it actually works! We did a complete and thorough mechanical upgrade, including a valve job and engine-bay show detail. We also installed a new convertible top and carpet set and re-finished the wood-dash trim. It has only been driven 5k miles since then in fair weather, and now has 64,000 Miles. We are presently doing a service and detail to bring it up to our high standards. This is a factory, full-beige leather interior car with optional DB 462 Tunis-Beige Metallic paint, automatic-transmission, original Frigiking Air Conditioning, Hirschmann Power Antenna, and factory Becker-Europa stereo. This is a real, rust-free Southern California car. It has all original panels, and the correct, original front fender notches. This is truly an exceptional 280SL.
