BK Auto Auctions brings you this 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Pagoda finished in silver with a black interior. The 280 SL is equipped with a 2.8L straight 6 that’s mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. Features include a full custom restoration and a “pagoda” hardtop convertible roof. This beautiful one of a kind 280 comes with a clean Texas title.

Exterior Features

Finished in silver metallic, this Pagoda features a hardtop convertible roof, 4-wheel dual-circuit disc brakes, and original 14” wheels. Features include power steering, tinted windows, bumper guards, and chrome roof bars. The seller states that the car has had a full no expense spared custom restoration.

Interior Features

Inside this 280 SL features a black leather interior trimmed with wood and chrome. The name “pagoda” came from the tall removable hardtop. It provides excellent visibility due to its thin support columns and tall, wide windows. The center console has the original Becker Europa AM/FM Radio, original dials, and gauges. When this car was new, it was fitted with new safety equipment that we take for granted today, like 3-point seatbelts and an energy absorbing steering column.

Drivetrain Features

Power comes from a 2.8L naturally aspirated, single overhead camshaft, 6 cylinder with Bosch mechanical fuel injection that produces 168 HP and 177 ft/lb of torque. A four-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels, allowing it to reach 0-60 mph in around 9 seconds and a claimed top speed of 124 mph. Unsurprising for an SL, the suspension is quite advanced for its age. The 280 utilizes a monocoque chassis, with fully independent suspension. The front suspension has coils and wishbones, while the rear incorporates a single-pivot swing axle and transverse springs set up to compensate for camber.
