1971 Mercedes Benz 280SL Seller’s Guide


1971 Mercedes Benz 280SL

Though not as powerful as the Mercedes 300SL or as curvaceous as the 190SL, the Mercedes 280SL was a balanced, high-performer that gave owners an exciting alternative to the daily-driver. Highly desirable when they first launched in 1968, the Mercedes 280SL still remains as one of the most sought-after Mercedes classics to this day. In fact, more than thirty years later, many parts are still available for these models directly from Mercedes Benz, and buyers continue to look for great examples of the 280SL not only for their classic car collections, but for their second cars and daily drivers. The last year of production, the 1971 Mercedes Benz 280SL saw only 830 units produced however, approximately 23,885 were manufactured over the course of its production run. The European version, which is highly sought-after in the United States, shared several features with the U.S. model, including a tachometer, four wheel disk brakes with power booster, three point seat belts, manual windows, wood console box between two bucket seats and more.
