The Mercedes-Benz W 113 is a two-seat roadster/coupe that was produced from 1963 through 1971. All models of the W 113 were produced with an inline 6-cylinder engine, excellent suspension, aluminum door skins and bonnets, and radial tires. SL models of the W 113 were typically configured with both a soft-top and removable hardtop.

The 280SL models were introduced by Mercedes-Benz at the end of 1967 and were produced until February of 1971 when they were replaced by the 350SL. Over the years, the W113 evolved slowly from a sports car into a more comfortable “grand tourer”. US models were often equipped with a 4-Speed automatic transmission rather than a manual. Manual transmission models, however, were offered as a standard 4-Speed or an optional ZF 5-Speed and were most popular amongst European buyers.

Our 280SL features the characteristic slightly “concave” hardtop and 4-Speed automatic transmission. The car is finished in white with a black interior. The overall condition and look of the interior of this car is extremely refined with yards of soft black upholstery, comfortable seats and well-preserved black carpeting throughout.

The documented history of this car and its overall condition speaks for itself. This is a truly-as-good-as-it-gets example with original paint, interior and a documented dealer service history from new. One owner until a year ago, the car has been driven sparingly; indeed less than 2,000 miles a year its 45-year-long life. A treasure for anyone’s collection. Original fenders and number matching throughout.
