RA Classics are proud to offer for sale this fantastic 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda (LHD).


Imported privately from the US by the previous owner; this car was sourced as the ideal platform for a comprehensive restoration project initially, until a right-hand drive example presented itself before any progress beyond disassembling this car had been achieved. The owner has therefore opted to instead restore the right-hand drive vehicle, and offer this car for sale in the condition of a rolling body. The car is accompanied by a large parts package.


In terms of the work that is required on the car; the 2.8L engine is in need of a rebuild, but there are no known issues to report regarding the running gear and transmission. The body work is in nice condition with no observable rot etc. The panel gaps of the body are nice and uniform.


This car comprises an ideal platform for a restoration project, with the potential for a dramatic improvement in condition for a relatively low time and energy investment.
