Classic Car Auctions says:

A beautiful 1969, Mercedes-Benz 280SL Convertible. This lovely 'Pagoda' is left-hand drive, automatic and finished in the delightful combination of Powder Blue over Medium Blue leather with a White hardtop.This lively little Mercedes has benefited from over £7,500 of recent expenditure (see file), a significant amount of which can be classified as 'detailing', which indicates the amount of care lavished by its owner. Elegant and eminently usable, 'Pagodas' continue to remain in fashion, and this 280SL looks and drives as it should. Supplied with a hardtop stand and invoice file, viewing is highly recommended.
