1969 Mercedes 280SL, One Owner, CA Car, 75k Miles, Survivor, Rust Free, Gorgeous!

This is an increasingly rare find.  It is a one owner, rust-free California car, mostly original, with all documentation since new having accumulated a total of 75,000 miles.  The original owner is now 82 years old and it is time for it to have a new caretaker for future generations.

We love cars like this.  The file is at least two inches thick with all receipts since 1969.  And they are all in chronological order!  All the books and manuals are there, the original spare wheel, tools, etc.

The rare Dark Green (Color 268) livery is handsome and has the green hardtop as well as the original green canvas top.  The exterior is complemented beautifully by the original Cognac (140) tan MB Textured interior, including the nearly perfect original brown carpeting.  The original Becker Europa AM/FM stereo is still mounted in the dash.  This is a true survivor.

The car is absolutely as rust free as you will ever find.  It is in remarkable condition.  The trunk is in perfect original condition as well as the mat in the trunk.  This example has the power steering, automatic transmission, bumper overriders, tinted glass and chrome roof bars.

The chrome is very good to excellent and is all original. This car has obviously been garaged its entire life.  The paint was redone years ago and looks very nice.  It could almost pass as original paint, it has a few scratches, no dents or real issues.  Look at the inspection video for more details.   It is truly exceptional.

This Pagoda was bought new from Edward K. Cumming & Co. on August 25th 1969 for $8,129.  Charles Davis traded in his 1968 250SL for this car.

The car will be sold with the complete file, books, tools, car cover and, if desired, the carrier for the hardtop.

This is an increasingly rare opportunity to find a one owner 75,000 mile survivor from California.  For more details call Harry Clark at 951.901.5088 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.
