Lot 106 - 1981 Mercedes-Benz 280SLC
|Result||Sold - £3,808|
The Mercedes-Benz SL variant was a two-seat convertible/roadster with standard soft top and hardtop as well as optional folding seats for the rear bench. The SLC was a two-door hardtop coupé with normal rear seats and is commonly referred to as an 'SL coupé' but in reality it was an S-Class coupé, replacing the former saloon-based 280/300 SE coupé in the Mercedes-Benz line-up and was every bit the luxurious touring car it was designed to be.
Originally registered on 18th June 1981, this presents in chestnut brown with tan/brown interior. Benefitting from fuel injection, this 280SLC drives very well and has clearly been well looked after throughout its 34 years on the road. The engine started immediately when requested and ran smoothly with no adverse noises; the gearbox was smooth and quiet in operation. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 21st April 2016, this Mercedes-Benz is for sale without reserve.
