This original owner 1970 280SL Mercedes with only 35,000 original miles on it came up from California for an extensive authentic cosmetic restoration to be done. The sheet metal on this car is pristine with no rust issues or major damage issues to deal with. Even though a few panels have been repainted in the past, the car still wears it’s checked original finish. There will be extensive disassembly involved in order to strip the existing paint and primer to perform a thorough concours quality paint restoration. Mechanically this car is in excellent condition but the engine and transmission will be removed to cosmetically restore the engine components and the engine bay. Other than the headliner in the hardtop needing to be replaced, virtually nothing else in the interior needs any serious attention.
