Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Roadster

The 280 SL was offered in America through 1971, when it was replaced by a newer SL series that was more focused on size and luxury than youthful appeal.

170 hp, 2778 cc inline overhead cam six-cylinder engine, automatic transmission, independent front and rear coil spring suspension, and power assist hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 94.5 in.
