This stunning, low mileage Mercedes Benz 280SL Roadster was manufactured in June 1970 in RHD format. Built in Germany, the Pagoda was sold new in the UK and an original document from the Mercedes Benz UK Homologation Department confirms this is indeed a matching numbers car still with its original engine. The Mercedes Benz is still in its original colour of White, with Black upholstery, Black hood and hard top and appears to be a correct car with many of its original features.MVF 812J has covered just 65,000 miles from new and comes with supporting paperwork back to when it was 8 years old. In September 1978 the 280SL was in Suffolk having covered 50,000 miles from new, covering the majority of its mileage during its early years. By 1990 the car had covered 54595 miles, 1995 60648 miles and by 2005 the Pagoda was approaching 64000 miles. In 2012 the Mercedes Benz was exported to Spain where it spent several years. The cars London based owner took the Pagoda to Madrid where it spent three years and covered around 300 miles. In 2015, it was sold to one of our customers based in Marbella. The Pagoda was transported to the Southern Spain coast for a life in the sun, but the owner returned to Scotland in 2016 and brought his entire collection back to the UK. Between 2017 and 2020, the collection has been slowly sold off.In 2020 this 280SL Roadster has had in the region of £20,000 spent on cosmetic improvements and mechanical upkeep. The car has been treated to a brand new stainless steel exhaust system, rebuilt automatic transmission, various re-chroming, a brand new mohair soft top and a complete strip down and top class re-paint. As result, the Pagoda is outstanding with a first class, gleaming paint finish with exceptional panel gaps and superb straight panels. The underside of the car is impressive, its structurally outstanding and incredibly clean underneath. The engine bay is nicely detailed, the boot compartment clean and the upholstery of a very high standard.On the road MVF 812J does not disappoint. The 2778cc six cylinder engine runs superbly, it holds excellent oil pressure and offers impressive performance. With 65,000 miles from new, the engine is very strong, the recently rebuilt automatic gearbox changes smoothly and with power steering, power assisted brakes and the lovely Mercedes Benz ride, the car is effortless to drive. It is the ultimate long distance tourer, they are reliable, robust, usable and powerful, and with automatic transmission the car is so relaxed as a cruiser. With hard and soft tops, the Pagoda can be used all year round and these iconic, timeless classics just keep growing in terms of desirability. MVF 812J is a very genuine, original car, its clear the bodywork has never been left to deteriorate, this has never been a bad car and of course has the provenance of matching numbers, original colours and is the more desirable 280SL.
