OUR CLIENT
William has a passion and love for classic Mercedes automobiles. In our Meet the Owner video he describes himself as someone who likes to stand out and with this car there is no exception. William is currently looking to sell two of his beloved Mercedes this beautiful 280 SL and a 280 CE in order to gain funds to buy his ideal model, the SLC. We at Trade Classics are sure that William will be sad to see this model go, and who knows, he may be on the phone to us to cancel one of his sales if he cannot find the right SLC.

This Meet the Owner video is covering the two cars that William is aiming to sell with us, but all the technical information in this video is about the SL.

We thoroughly enjoyed talking to William about this beautiful car. Please see all of the media we have gathered from this to fully understand the drive, the work that needs to be done and to see if this vehicle is the right one for you.



THE EXTERIOR
The black paint of the car gives it a classy and elegant look and definitely turned some heads in the Hammersmith area. Upon our inspection we have noticed some ageing as you would expect from a car of this age. Please look at all the photos and videos to gain a complete perspective for yourself.

Wheels & Tyres
This comes with classic Mercedes alloy wheels, in good condition.

Bodywork
Youll notice from the images that the offside front wing has a bubbling around the indicator the new owner may think its best to replace this with a new wing in the future. The good news is the car has had bodywork repaired in the past and looks to be a good standard e.g. the sills and wheel arches are all in good order. One thing to note is there is also slight dent on the boot. Please review all images and photos to review the full condition.

Paint
The paint is generally in good condition as you can see from the images and videos. We do think it would benefit from a machine mop and polish.

Glass, Trim and Other
The glass around the whole car is in good condition upon our inspection. We recommend replacing the roof as this has two holes in that is susceptible to rain. Also the rubber on the rear trim is showing wear.



THE INTERIOR
Please watch our On the Road video as William takes us around the Hammersmith area. The engine generally sounded and felt, really good. All of us at Trade Classics were impressed with the overall functionality of the vehicle. A really pleasant experience.

Seats and Carpets
The seats are looking in good condition, however, there is a rip in the drivers seat. Please see the photos to look for yourself.

Dashboard
The dashboard looks in good condition and has a beautiful wooden finish by the stereo and near the gear stick.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick
Both are in excellent condition with no issues. Still has original steering wheel and gear stick.

MECHANICS
Our consigner Glyn had the pleasure of sitting alongside William in our On the Road Video. He tested the engine in the Cold Start section at the start, there is no cause for concern. William gave it a spirited rev also which highlighted no problems to us.

Engine and Gearbox
Effortless automatic gear changes that are not riddled with any extra noise from the engine.

Suspension and Brakes
The brakes bring you to a nice stand still and still work as expected. The soft suspension gives you a smooth ride in any urban area.

The Drive
The pedals are not spongy. As well as this, the power steering caused no unwanted noise and has all the elements of a classic Mercedes. The overall drive was very pleasurable.

Electrics and Other
All the gauges are working well, however, there is no stereo fitted at the time of inspection. William assures us the lights work fine and says no major problems seem to be there with the electrics.



HISTORY
There is a very good service history as well as a file of documents for you to examine all the work that has been done on the car.

Current indicated mileage is 110,657 miles on 29/10/2019.
