FS : 1984 280 SL (R107)

...Wife says clear out the barn !
I have spent the last 10 years going thru everything this car has to restore, rebuild, replace this roadster to like new condition. All mechanicals have been zero timed from complete engine overhaul to new clutch, pressure plate, flywheel resurface, all new hoses and belts, bushings bearings ....you name yes it's been done...about the only thing I can think of that hasn't been done is the wiring harness ( because it doesn't need it !). Vacuum adjustable headlights work... I do have the original Blaupunkt / Becker ( can't remember which and it's packed in a box) radio / cassette but I prefer the JVC cd/mp3 player that's it( picture shows a Sony but since has changed)...no mods were done so the original radio would slide back in...the body was taken down to bare metal by hand...there is NO bondo/filler and then primered twice and painted with original and correct MB red for this model. I have more pictures available and would be glad to answer any questions...The Price is $16,500.00 . If you want an investment and you like the 107 then this is the model you want...
...

The only models to offer the manual 5 speed is the 280SL and the 300SL ...and there are a very few of the total 280SL and even fewer 300SL cars in the US. This car only needs a buyer who likes to drive with the top down...and watch his/her investment appreciate...Have a great day

Thanks for looking...Don

It's a shame you are getting rid of it.
Best of luck, it's a fine looking example.

That's quite a beauty. Some day my 280SL is going to get the exact same treatment, after many years of relative neglect. Seeing this car makes me want to do it even more, and sooner!
