Classic Cars for Sale says:

The Mercedes-Benz 280SL is indeed part of a very special lineage, starting with the infamous 300SL 'Gull-Wing' continuing to cars such as the present day SL55 AMG.

The Mercedes 280SL is widely regarded as a beautifully crafted sports tourer, the design of which is timeless. The two-seater is powered by a 2778cc engine, using 6 cylinders to ensure a smooth driving experience. Although not available as a coupe, Mercedes did offer the option of a 'pagoda roof' removable hard top.

Standard equipment on the 280SL was impressive for the time, included were all round disc brakes, tachometer, 3 point safety harness, wood trim and a clock.
