1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL s/n 113.044-12-019715, engine no. 130-983-12-0 13074 Two Tone White and Medium Blue with Dark Blue 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 with 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 disc brakes all around. This particular car was finished in the color combination it still wears today, two tone DB050 white with DB350 medium blue hub caps and hard top, offset with a dark blue interior. It was fitted with the following options: 249 heated rear window 426 power steering and automatic transmission 491 US version 503 left side rear view mirror 515 Becker AM-FM radio The car was sold new at Phil Smart Mercedes-Benz in Seattle, Washingto
