On the road, this SL drives exactly as a low-mileage Pagoda should. There is no smoke, ample power and crisp shifting. This 280SL has benefited from sympathetic ownership, evident in the carefully selected new factory parts installed. The oil pressure is exactly where it should be, and engine temperature is rock-solid cool 190 degrees F on a hot day. The A/C system was upgraded in late 2021 and the heat is in working order as well. The Becker stereo functions well from its 3 speakers, located on the left & right front kick panels and center dash speaker. You will note a new, complete factory exhaust (Eberspacher), recently serviced A/C and new belts. Her tidy undercarriage, wheel wells and engine compartment are all consistent with low original miles. This was how 280SLs looked as they neared the end of their production, complete with plastic coolant expansion tank (not brass) and a heated rear window on the hardtop.
