Marked as possibly one of the most beautiful cars to roll off of the Mercedes-Benz production line, the Mercedes W113 is a 2+2 roadster/coupe and predecessor to the W198 and W121 Sls featuring an automatic transmission, an inline 6-cylinder engine and lightweight aluminium body panels.
The “California Coupe” was a US-only model that came with a folding rear bench seat and removable Pagoda hardtop.
This 280SL model was built in January of 1967 and spent the majority of its life in America before being imported into the UK in 2015. When the car was imported it underwent some extensive rejuvenation including a full engine rebuild bare metal restoration by a well-known Mercedes Pagoda specialist. This car is finished in a stunning metallic beige finish with the original black MB Tex interior and the car has only covered just 2,600 miles since the engine rebuild and restoration.
California models are hard to find, especially in such wonderful condition and the current residuals on the W113 SLs are very strong, making this a very promising investment opportunity for someone looking to expand their classic car collection.
