Cheshire Classic Benz

Supplying the highest quality examples of classic Mercedes-Benz cars from the 1960s to 1990s

280SL Roadster 2.8 Litre 6-Cyl 1982X

Silver Blue metallic, matching hardtop, brand new blue soft top (not fitted when photos were taken), grey sport check interior, automatic gearbox, ABS, electric windows, rear seats, original Blaupunkt Toronto radio/cassette player, original 14” steel wheels with hubcaps, central locking, FSH, all tools and manuals, 79,000 miles.


This lovely vehicle was supplied new by Huddersfield Garages Mercedes-Benz to a local lady, and spent the first five years of its life with her, covering 27,000 miles during that period. Between 1988 and 1997 it had a further five registered keepers, all in the West Yorkshire and Lancashire areas, and it is most likely that some of these will have been dealer registrations for plate transfer purposes and/or company/personal transfers between the same owners/drivers/spouses. In 1997 it went to a lady in Frodsham, Cheshire, when the mileage stood at 65,000. She owned it for 19 years, during which time it has been a special car used only for high days and holidays. She has only parted with it due to her recently becoming a widow and the consequent lifestyle change that has involved.

It has been serviced regularly for the whole of its life, with 16 stamps in the service book, seven of which are from Mercedes-Benz dealers, four from independent Mercedes specialists, one from an independent Jaguar specialist and the remaining four from non-franchised garages. We have every MOT certificate since 1996 and many service and maintenance invoices. We will service it before handover to its new owner, so it will be ready for a further 6,000 miles before any scheduled attention is needed.

Having been properly garaged, used sparingly and maintained unstintingly by each of its owners it is in beautiful condition throughout and drives superbly, with ample and smooth power delivery from the silky six cylinder engine. The Silver Blue paint colour looks very elegant and is quite unusual to find on an example of this model. The rarely found steel wheels with chrome and body coloured hubcaps give it an extra classic appeal which set it apart from almost every other example of this model. It will always be admired in any company by those who know their Mercedes. Since the photos were taken we have fitted a brand new O.E. quality blue soft top.

We have carried out a comprehensive mechanical check of the car and any faults found have been remedied. All required maintenance has been carried out. A schedule of this work will be supplied with the car, along with our own warranty, details of which can be supplied on request.
