The car presented here is a stunningly original and well maintained 1970 280SL presented in Silver over Black Leather, a combination which is original to the car. This 280 SL is a documented two owner car and was first purchased by a E.K. Ernest in Florida, and later on NYC. In 1972 the car was sold to Gail Kennedy, who we recently purchased the car from. The car is a two owner car, with both prior owners names recorded in the service booklet. The car has a fully filled out Mercedes Service booklet and every service record from new indicating it was always serviced at a Mercedes dealership, or Mercedes Specialists, Rheinland Motors. The car was carefully maintained decade after decade getting everything it needed, including a fully working A/C system. Totaled all together, over $150,000 has been spent maintaining this car properly throughout the years. The car received a new Long Block from Metric Mechanic roughly 25,000 documented miles ago and runs beautifully. All the panels are matching with correct stampings on the hood, decklid, and hard top. Amazingly, the car came to us with its original soft top, which while aged, is still in curiously good condition, and can be included if so desired. The interior is gorgeous with an original radio and all working instruments and gauges. The car comes with its matching hardtop, original soft top, tool kit, books and records.
