History & current state

Engine

The car was restored few years ago. At some point in the history of the car, the block was removed and replaced by a 280SE block, which is identical in all its components to the 280SL. The cylinder head is from a 280SL.

The engine runs very smooth, since it has been overhauled recently, as well as the full rebuild of the automatic transmission. We have more than €9000 in service records to show for.

Bodywork

The bodywork is in great condition. It was fully restored some years ago, where the car changed colors to the current red/beige interior combination.
Judging from the front fenders, the car had a mild front collision, since some spot welds are missing closer to the front as well as the crests. However, this had to be very mild and was addressed properly in the restoration.
Though being a extremely solid car with no serious rust, the car has some light corrosion in the typical places of the Pagoda, such as the trunk and tiny spots on the bumpers (see pictures).

Interior

It was reupholstered to a brand new beige interior that looks incredibly well with the outer color of the car.
