Vehicle Notes

What makes this SL special is not only that this is the TRUE EUROPEAN 6 Cylinder model, BUT it also features VERY RARE 4-Speed MANUAL TRANSMISSION, as well as desirable short European bumpers!!!!

There was only 1,347 280SL’s produced in 1977, and the number of SL’s produced with the manual transmission is even smaller!!!

280SL was a special production model, and limited number of cars were produced each year from 1974 until 1985 as majority of its siblings produced were V8 models. Out of 237,287 R107’s ever produced ONLY 25,436 were 280SL’s, and after 30+ years of life number of 280SL's on the road today is much much smaller!!! Account for Manual transmission, this 280SL is even rarer!!

Even though being inline 6, the engine delivers as much power as the US version V8’s, and being lighter car, its much more nimble and fun to drive in the city, and along the highway.

ONLY 116,790 DOCUMENTED MILES!!! That is only about 2,900 miles per year for this 40 year old beauty! There are thousands in service and maintenance records!!

Besides its US import papers (imported to the USA in 1985) original Owner Manuals (in German), original DATA Card, original German Registration (Fahrzeugbrief) and other documentation is present!

With its rare and desirable color combination, documented pedigree, and the fact that this is a true EUROPEAN 280SL with MANUAL TRANSMISSION, there is not a lot of R107 SL’s like this one on the road today!!

About the car:

This SL was sitting for the past 4 years or so due to its owner’s age and health issues. Old fuel was drained, fuel filter changed, new battery installed, and even though it was sitting for that period of time, engine starts right up, runs great and manual transmission is shifting through all the gears with ease!

Its RARE and very elegant Brilliant Red Metallic paint (Paint Code 525G – Brilliantrot) is showing its age, but once repainted this SL will be dancing again in its full glory!!!

Body is nice and undercarriage is original.

This SL comes with both Hard Top and Soft top. Original Matching Numbers Hard top is in pretty good condition, and all original glass is nice and complete.

Soft top is operating with ease, but soft top canvas will need to be replaced due to its age.

All in all this is rare, and very nice and complete SL that is ready to be taken to the next level, and it will be a great return on your investment!


Its original 40 years old Cloth interior is all complete, but it started to show its age and patina.

This Mercedes comes with rare manual windows, and they are working as they should!

-Engine & Transmission

Bullet Proof 2.8 Liter inline 6 Engine starts up with ease hot or cold, and it has no problems cruising down the highway!!!

All of its maintenance and mileage is documented and there are thousands and thousands (OVER $9,000) in documents and receipts, as it owners wanted to make sure that his baby runs just as good as it looks!!! Whatever this car needed, it was always addressed without a wait, or expenses spared!

RARE Manual 4-speed Transmission shifts smoothly and effortlessly through every gear.

This German Roadster handles good at the highway speeds, and it is very comfortable.

Air Condition will need to be recharged.

This beautiful roadster comes ALL complete with its original import papers, books and manuals in German, original data card, Original German Registration, and also its original Safety Triangle sign.

To find a vehicle that is 40+ years old, documented since day one its going to be a very hard task! 280SL’s don’t come up for sale very often, and ones equipped with desirable MANUAL transmission are even harder to come by!!!
