“The 280SL is the grand total of everything Mercedes-Benz engineers have learned about high-performance sporting machinery” - Road & track magazine 1969

This offered example is the most sought after version of the iconic Mercedes-Benz Pagoda-series: the 280SL with the extremely rare ZF5-gearbox. This car was shipped in "the summer of ‘69" to its first Lebanese owner (so an "European" version), a prosperous center of style, art and free thinking at the time. This rare 280SL was appropriately finished in the also exclusive Sandy beige metallic, black hardtop and black mbtex. The pièce de résistance is of course the optional and at the time very expensive (500 $) ZF5-speed manual gearbox, which was always delivered in combination with the extended swingarm ratio.

It’s needless to say that this 280SL is in a perfect running condition: the engine runs smoothly and the gearbox shifts perfect and direct. The interior is mostly original and the car has only been repainted once. Apart of a few minor visual defaults, this 280SL is technically in excellent conditiony, a true drivers car so. Furthermore, the car is fully functional and ready to hit the road. Even more: this car can be used perfectly asit is without additional costs. Ultimately, given the very high market prices for the 280SL Pagoda’s with original ZF5 gearbox, she is a perfect candidate for a nuts & bolts restoration to absolute concours-condition!

This very rare and most desirable Pagoda is now for sale at Rock'n'Roll Classics!
