Description
Lot #448 - This beautifully restored 1969 Mercedes 280 SL Roadster has been in our family for three generations. The car was acquired in Boulder, CO in the mid 1980's from it's original owner and transported back East. It was selected by us due to the wonderful condition it was in physically and mechanically and for it's potential. The original work was done in 1986 by Precision Autoworks in East Camden, NJ. Ownership was then transferred from a great uncle to my uncle who oversaw the remainder of the restoration. In 1990 the engine was rebuilt at Pound Ridge Motors in Pound Ridge, NY and a majority of other engine parts and subcomponents were replaced in support of the rebuilding. Over the years great thought and energy was given to securing original Mercedes parts i.e. a steering wheel; dashboard components; etal. The interior of the car has been redone and maintained in beautiful condition. A King-Air air conditioning unit was added in 1987. Most recently the car has gone through a complete tuning and mechanical assessment to maintain a high performance standard. The most recent work was conducted by the Classic Car Specialist at Mercedes of Manhattan. Over the years the car was transported to and from Scottsdale, AZ by Horseless Carriage for use as a part time winter car. The car has never been driven during the winter months in the Northeast. The car has all documentation and supportive original manuals and shop guides.
