SOLD: A matching-numbers California car with soft-top and removable hardtop, in lovely condition.

EQUIPMENT
Tunis Beige Metallic paintwork (462), Black MB Tex upholstery (131), Removable hardtop in black, Folding soft-top, Four-speed automatic transmission, Becker Europa radio, Lap seat belts, Illuminated and lockable glove compartment, Dash clock, MPH speedo, Original boot mat, Bumper overriders, Spare wheel with cover.

EXTERIOR
The gleaming Tunis Beige paintwork presents really well throughout with few blemishes to report. Both sides of the car are perfectly straight with even panel gaps and a resplendent metallic shine. All the brightwork appears in fantastic condition and is for the most part original, with a lovely mirror finish to be found on close inspection; the same is true of the lights all crystal clear and moisture-free. The removable hardtop looks superb in contrasting black and the soft-top presents well with no damage to the rear window.

INTERIOR
The interior space is pleasingly original, the black MB Tex seats really having stood the test of time. The upholstery is in great condition and there are no rips in the multi-loop carpets, with only a small amount of fading along the transmission tunnel and rear section to report; we have just replaced the footwell mats with factory-correct items from Germany. Other commonly worn areas, such as the steering wheel and dash, show few signs of use. As a California-supplied car this example is equipped with a dealer-fit air conditioning unit. The hardtop headlining is in excellent condition.

ENGINE
The original 2.8-litre straight six is in fine mechanical fettle having been well maintained over the course of its life. The service booklet contains 9 entries from its time in the US and there is documentation for another 18 services carried out since then. We have just had the car fully inspected, serviced and MOTd for the new keepers piece of mind. It performs beautifully on test with a lovely straight six purr and near-seamless gear changes from the four-speed auto box.

WHEELS
The Pagoda sits on 15-inch steels with the correct polished hubcaps. The wheel trims present in good original condition with only some curb marking to be found on close inspection. The wheels are shod in a matching set of period Michelin whitewall tyres, each with ample tread remaining.

HISTORY FILE
This matching-numbers 280SL Pagoda was first registered in California in April 1970. It remained with the same keeper for the next twenty years before being exported to Japan in 1990 at 94k miles. The car resided on Japans salt-free roads up until 2019 when it was imported into the UK by 4 Star at 105k miles. Since arriving in the country we have had it fully inspected, serviced and MOTd; a brand new exhaust system has also just been fitted. The paperwork is complete with the original maintenance booklet containing 9 US entries, along with documentation and invoices for a further 18 services. The factory data card and a Date of Manufacture letter from Mercedes are also present.
