Lot 209 - 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL - Restoration project
|Odometer reading||53,703 miles|
|Result||Sold - £3,850|
Delivered originally as a lefthand drive example of this iconic sportscar to the United States of America, it has been registered since 2005 in Colorado. In 2008, it was acquired by a Mr. RIzwan Khan of Gillingham, Kent from the vendor, Richard Johnson or Colorado with, it would seem, a 250SL engine and transmission. Presented in red with black leather interior, this needs some restoration but on casual inspection, it would appear that the car is largely complete. Much of the brightwork and parts can be found in the boot and it comes complete with the all important hard top. Supplied with Colorago certificate of title, Customs form C&E 386 and one or two other documents, this could be transformed with a little love and attention.
Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
