1968 Mercedes-benz 280SL/8 in 571 Red Metallic

MERCEDES-BENZ 280SL/8

The Mercedes-Benz W113 ‘Pagoda’ is considered as one of the most popular, stylish and well engineered Classic Mercedes-Benz models ever produced. 

The example we have on offer today has been both restored and subsequently maintained here at John Haynes in Sussex and presents with the utmost quality throughout. 

First registered to the UK in 1968 this 280SL/8 comes as right hand drive with 4 speed automatic transmission, the most popular and desirable specification across the Pagoda range. 

Finished in 571 Red Metallic over Parchment Tex interior with a black soft top and matching body colour hard top this is how the Pagoda left the Factory back in 1968, completely data card correct. 

The vehicle has had just 4 former keepers since new, we have had the pleasure of looking after this Pagoda for the last 2 owners since 2008, since in our care we have restored and maintained the vehicle to the very highest of exacting standards, this is beautifully reflected in how the 280SL/8 presents and drives today. 

The history file is testament to its condition too, there are invoices totalling expenditure of over £200,000 all through John Haynes Bodyshop and Workshop as well as a supporting photo album showcasing some of the vehicles restoration process.

The 280SL/8 has just gone through our workshops once more to prepare it perfectly for sale, this recent works has been all documented into the impressive history file, ensuring the Pagoda wants for nothing and is 100% ready to go.

With the W113 Pagoda 60th anniversary next year in 2023 they are sure to be coveted even more, resulting in well sorted examples being in serious demand, perhaps the consideration of acquiring a Pagoda in advance of the anniversary may be a wise move.

Presented in one of the most wonderful colour combinations suited to a Pagoda we believe this to be one of finest examples at this price point anywhere available in the UK today.
