1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL 4-Speed s/n 113.044-10-003936, engine no. 130.983.10.001076 Medium Red with Black Interior Representing Mercedes-Benz's trend towards producing more usable and practical sports cars, the 230/250/280SL line was meant to replace both the 190SL and the illustrious 300SL. The car was a comfortable two-seater that was to be neither too big nor too expensive, and exhibited excellent roadholding thanks to the innovative and sophisticated rear suspension design. Built to Mercedes' usually high standards and employing excellent visibility, the cars were popular and sold well. The cars were continuously developed, with the 280SL being the ultimate version of the car, with its larger more powerful engine and all around disc brakes. This particular car is a wonderfully unmolested example that has exceptional integrity. The car was originally finished in medium red with black interior and soft top, the color combination it wears today. The original options included the following: 401 single seats 416 hardtop mounted 461 instruments and mileage reading in English 491 US version 503 outside rear view mirror left 515 Becker AM/FM radio Europa 524 paint coat preservation 59
