Garaged 1970 Mercedes 280sl Pagoda Roadster for sale, 75,292 original miles, 100% solid factory metal. Original fenders with factory spot welds; original trunk floor; excellent original undercarriage with factory undercoating.  Excellent silver/black factory color combination.  New black leather installed on seats, new German weave carpet, new soft top — all done to factory specifications.  Paint is high-quality and approximately 10 years, still shows well.  Yet another Walnut Creek California car that took years to pry away from an elderly neighbor (he kept his blue California vanity license plates).  This is a “survivor” car with one repaint since new.  Most Pagoda models have been either wrecked or rusted over the decades, only a few retain the original factory workmanship and quality of this car.  Because it has never been fully restored I would classify it as nice driver-quality 280sl, but one which has retains its bone fide factory metal and potential for a 100-point concours-quality restoration years or decades from now.  That sets it apart from most of the Pagoda models on the market.  We are a licensed California dealer: California retail buyers will be responsible for tax and license fees.  Overseas buyers are welcome: We work closely with a local shipper in Hayward, California, who offers competitive rates.
