This fully restored example of a rare European version 1967 model year 250SL was purchased by my family in 1977 after import from Germany. The car was purchased in its current silver color, but had originally been red. The original delivery certificate indicates that they car was originally delivered in Frankfurt on 9/22/1967 with the following options:

401 – Single seats

416 – Hardtop

422 – Power Steering

600 – Hardtop moldings

255 – Rear axle ratio 1:3.69

256 – Limited slip differential

720 – Black fabric folding top

The car was enjoyed by my stepfather for many years until the mid 90’s when it underwent a restoration that included a full body reconditioning (with engine removal), a new hose and rocker panels, and a complete (body and frame) repainting in its silver color. Many components were replaced, such as the speedometer.odometer and other gauges. Unfortunately, detailed records of this restoration have been lost. However, the car’s body is in superb shape, and there is no indication of any rust or flaws in the body.

The car was driven sporadically until it was passed on to me upon my stepfather’s death in 2003. The car was transported to the Seattle area in 2004 and enjoyed until 2009 when it was time for another round of restoration. A year-long restoration was performed by The Foreign Service shop in Raleigh, NC, specialists in SL restorations, and was completed in 2010. The work included mechanical reconditioning with replacement of all wear parts such as motor mounts, exhaust system and all rubber hoses. Also included was a complete interior restoration (wood trim, seats, and carpets) and several drivability upgrades including heated seats, custom console with cup holder (original wood tray was also refinished to match and is included), halogen headlight conversion and Alpine stereo with MP3 player connection, to name a few. Detailed records are included in the car’s documentation packet.

This nearly perfect 250SL is a real head turner and given its extensive restoration, is ready for a collector and/or driver to enjoy for years to come.
