1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL. This 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL was acquired by the seller’s late father approximately 10 years ago and is finished in red over black MB-Tex upholstery. Power comes from a fuel-injected 2.8L inline-six paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. Features include a color-matched hardtop, a Becker Europa AM/FM radio, a Kühlmeister under-dash air-conditioning system, and a floor shifter. This W113 SL is now offered by the seller on behalf of his late father’s estate with factory books, a tool roll, and a clean Florida title in his mother’s name.

The car is finished in red and features chrome bumpers, US-market lighting, dual side-view mirrors, and a color-matched hardtop. The passenger door handle has been replaced, a section of rocker trim is missing behind the driver’s door, and there is no soft top present.

The 14″ steel wheels wear chrome covers with body-color accents and are mounted with 195/75 Michelin Weatherwise whitewall tires. An April 2021 inspection recommended the replacement of the brake booster, master cylinder, and cylinder grommets according to the seller.
