Vehicle Description

ORIGINALLY REGISTERED TO A LADY ON EDGWARE ROAD, FULHAM ON THE 1ST JANUARY 1983 THIS STUNNING 280 SL THEN PASSED INTO THE HANDS OF THE LADY'S FRIEND SOME 25 YEARS LATER, HE USED IT SPARINGLY OVER THE NEXT 7 YEARS (ALONGSIDE A W124 CABRIOLET) SO DECIDED TO PART EXCHANGE IT 18 MONTHS AGO WITH OURSELVES FOR AN EXCEPTIONALLY LOW MILEAGE, LAST OF THE LINE W124 E220 CABRIOLET. WE HAVE MANY RECEIPTS, SERVICE DOCUMENTS AND AN MOT HISTORY LOG TO VERIFY THIS VEHICLE'S FANTASTICALLY LOW MILEAGE OF 18800. ONCE SAFELY BACK IN OUR POSSESSION WE INSTRUCTED A LOCAL SPECIALIST TO UNDERGO A THOROUGH INSPECTION OF THE VEHICLE TO DETERMINE ITS QUALITY. THE SL WAS FOUND TO BE EXCEPTIONALLY SOLID UNDERNEATH (REQUIRED NO WELDING) DUE TO THE FACT THAT IT HAD BEEN KEPT IN A LONDON UNDERGROUND GARAGE MOST OF ITS LIFE WHILST NOT IN USE AND COMPRESSION TESTS ON THE ENGINE PAINTED A SIMILAR PICTURE. WE THEREFORE TOOK THE DECISION TO UNDERGO A FULL BODY RESTORATION TO PRESENT THE CAR AS WELL AS IT DRIVES. THIS WAS UNDERTAKEN BY LOCAL SPECIALIST CRAFTSMEN AND WE HAVE A DOCUMENTED CATALOGUE OF ALL WORKS UNDERTAKEN. WE ENDED UP SPENDING £20000 JUST ON THE BODY OF THE CAR WHICH INCLUDED THE FOLLOWING: 2 X NEW FRONT WINGS 2 X LOWER REAR QUARTERS FULL CHASSIS STONEGUARDED IN FACTORY CHASSIS PAINT (MUCH CLASSIER FINISH THAN WAXOYL) ENGINE ROCKER COVER AND OTHER MAJOR COMPONENTS INC RADIATOR SHELL REMOVED AND REPAINTED ALLOY WHEELS HAND PAINTED BACK TO FACTORY FINISH (NOT POWDER COATED) INNER BOOTLID PAINTED IN THE ORIGINAL FACTORY MATT BLACK PAINT BRAND NEW GENUINE MERCEDES BOOT, BONNET AND DOOR SEALS (NOT CHEAP PATTERN ITEMS) BRAND NEW GENUINE MERCEDES SILL COVERS PLUS CHROME RUNNERS BRAND NEW GENUINE MERCEDES DOOR STRIPS BRAND NEW GENUINE MERCEDES RUBBER BUMPER INSERTS REPLACEMENT HOOD FITTED CIRCA 2 AND A HALF YEARS AGO I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH THE QUALITY OF THE RESTORATION ON THIS EXCEPTIONAL SL, EVERYTHING HAS BEEN DONE USING ONLY GENUINE ITEMS TO ENSURE A QUALITY FINISH, THE VEHICLE ALSO BOASTS AN ORIGINAL TOOL ROLL, FACTORY HARDTOP AND FOLDING REAR BENCH SEAT.
