Model 280 SL - Manual Transmission Body Type Convertible + Hard top Price SOLD
Make 1974-1985 Color Bue
Year 1981 Interior Shark Grey
Specific description A car dealer in Ghent (Belgium) sold this car to the first owner Emiel Rombaut, who owned the car until 2002. We purchased this great car from the second owner in 2016. The SL280 convertible has a rare manual gearbox. The original “Lapis blue” color of the car is a perfect match with the original grey interior. The blue canvas is brand new and has been replaced in a Mercedes shop. It is a fully documented car and has 194.000 original kilometers. This car is a real pleasure to drive.

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.
