Coupe
Chassis #: 113.044.10.022644
Sold for $168,000 at 2019 RM Sothebys : Monterey.
The Mercedes-Benz 230 SL was introduced in 1963 on the new W113 chassis as a replacement to the 300 SL and affordable 190 SL of the 1950s. It was designed by Paul Bracq, who penned tradition-breaking straight fender lines. The 2.3-liter engine was rather disappointing due to limited power, which was rectified when it was replaced in 1967 by the interim 2.5-liter 250 SL, and then in 1968 by the 280 SL with its more powerful 2.8-liter inline six-cylinder powerplant. Production of the 280 SL lasted three years before it was replaced with the R107-chassis 350 SL.

This fully restored 280 SL is backed by an original four-speed manual transmission. It has the U.S. headlights, bumper over-riders, and side markers and is finished in the color combination of metallic medium blue over Cognac leather interior with a dark brown soft top. It has a removable 'Pagoda' hardtop with a sliding sunroof, likely a period dealer-installed aftermarket accessory. There is a set of fitted luggage trimmed in matching Cognac, as well as a tool kit and spare tire.
