1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda. Presented in the classic combination of black over cognac, the car shows to a nice driver standard throughout. Both tops in excellent condition. Air conditioning. Automatic. This car has been in Georgia since at least 1992 and with the current owner since 1998. Originally 291 Dark Olive with an 040 Black hard top, the car was repainted some years ago in all black. Nice paint, body, chrome and glass. Original fenders.

Interior shows well with seats, dash, steering wheel, wood trim, door panels, carpet and headliner all in good condition. All gauges and climate control sliders (including backlights) are working as they should. Only deviation from stock is an aftermarket stereo, but by '71 the dash opening for the stereo was standardized so a Becker Europa can be refitted without modification.

The 2.8 liter overhead cam six has an unstamped case, which means it was a factory replacement engine (not a donor from another car). The Bosch mechanical fuel injection system on European cars from this era can be finicky, but this car is well-tuned, starts easily both hot and cold, and pulls strong throughout the rev range at all temperatures. Runs and drives well and the automatic transmission shifts just as it should. Maintained by the same local Mercedes specialist for the last 20 years.

Easily among the best looking of Paul Bracq's designs, the W113 Pagoda exudes a timeless, understated elegance and this example would be welcomed by any enthusiast. For more information about this 1971 Mercedes 280 SL for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
