Specific description This car was sold new to Mr. Vic E. Breeden living in California, as stated on the original sales invoice from 1968 for the price of 8.879 US Dollars. The car comes with its original sales brochure and owner’s manual. Even rarer is that the car also has its original service booklet with first service performed when having 435 miles in March 1968. The car is fitted with its original Blaupunkt radio. The file contains several invoices trough the years. It was imported to Belgium in 2012. Once in Belgium the car has been resprayed in its original color and is in extremely good shape. The car is mechanically reliable and ready to be enjoyed and driven.

Model description The 280 SL was introduced in December 1967 and continued in production through 23 February 1971, when the W 113 was replaced by its successor, the entirely new and substantially heavier R107 350 SL. Over the years, the W 113 evolved from a sports car into a comfortable grand tourer, and US models were by then usually equipped with the 4-speed automatic transmission and air conditioning. Manual transmission models came with the standard 4-speed or the optional ZF 5-speed, which was ordered only 882 times and thus is a highly sought-after original option today. In Europe, manual transmissions without air conditioning were still the predominant choice. Of the 23,885 280 SLs produced, more than half were sold in the US.
