1969 Mercedes Benz 280SL Seller’s Guide


1969 Mercedes Benz 280SL

The 1969 Mercedes Benz 280SL was made famous by its atypical roofline on the removable hardtop and for its sleek, angular styling. In fact, it was this iconic styling that made the W113 one of the most recognizable lines of European classic cars available today. Nicknamed the “Pagoda” due to the shape of the roof, there were three models in the SL line: the 230SL, 250SL and 280SL. If you’re looking for a Seller’s Guide for the 1969 Mercedes 280SL, you’ve come to the right place. First, Alex Manos and his team recommend knowing exactly what you’ve got! Do you have the Coupe/Roadster version that offered both the removable hardtop as well as the soft-top? Or, do you have the desirable “California Coupe”, which was only a soft-top was offered and a drop-down bench seat was installed in place? These options will be critical in determining the value of the model. Furthermore, knowing the extent of any rust will be crucial. Yes, these cars were prone to rust and they are more than thirty years old. Buyers know there will be some rust, however knowing this upfront can be greatly helpful.
