  • The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster featured here is finished in stunning Dark Olive Green with a beautiful Cognac interior. This magnificent motorcar is believed to have been driven just 48,285 miles from new and spent most of its life in Southern California. Production of the 280SL would conclude in February 1971, making these true 1971 production 280SLs some of the most coveted by Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts and collectors to this day. These late production 1971 280SLs are seldom seen on the market as there are only a handful known to exist and it is the only 1971 built SL we have seen in the past year. This 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster is well-equipped with Frigiking air conditioning, power steering, automatic transmission, its color matched removable hardtop, retractable convertible top and more. Accompanying this investment-grade to 280SL Roadster is its owner’s manual, toolkit, buildsheet copy from Mercedes-Benz and more. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
