1971 280SL Roadster in original DB 904 midnight blue. “The Best of Both Worlds!” This is a 45 year old classic design with a modern E320 drivetrain. 3,000 miles are on this total ground up restoration done by a well known Mercedes Benz specialist at a cost of $235,000. Shortly after completion, the owner decided to have the drive train upgraded to a more exciting, better performing, and reliable E320 DOHC 24 valve engine and matching transmission, giving it the best of both worlds! This was accomplished by a well known Mercedes Shop without any major cutting or changing of the original chassis or body, making a change back to its original mechanical configuration an easy project down the road as these cars continue to escalate in value. Included with the car is the original numbers matching engine completely rebuilt by metrics motors in California. The Engine comes with all its ancillary parts, either new or rebuilt. Such as: - Fuel Injection Pump - Power Steering Pump - Starter - Alternator - Water Pump - A/C Compressor - Distributor - Etc… As well as a factory rebuilt transmission and torque converter. This is all show detailed and installed on its own dolly for display and ease of movement. Although silent and smooth at idle, as the RPM’s rise the exhaust note becomes a rich but not obnoxious burble. After forty plus years of specializing in 113 SL’s, owning 146 of them, and working on hundreds more for our customers, I can truly say this SL is the most enjoyable and fun to drive of any I have driven! No sales pitch or pictures do it justice. You need to get behind the wheel to really appreciate it! offered far below the cost to replicate it. Please Call for additional info or to schedule a test drive!
