It was the Pagode or 113 Series cars produced from 1964-1971 that embellished the true meaning of the SL, and today are recognized as the standard for the SL’s lineage.  As the 230SL came to the end of its run in 1966 the 250SL was introduced, but only for a brief moment, as the power was then upgraded once again to the 2.8L specification. Thus the 280SL was born and first introduced in 1968. It would run its course until the middle of 1971 when the 107 series was introduced.
During its production many options were available in a seemingly endless amount of color combinations. It is rare to see a Pagoda Mercedes on the road most days of the week, but perhaps even rarer to see one that isn’t Red or White as most of them were. The car on offer here is an interesting car for a few different reasons. The first and most interesting point to be made is that of how it was originally ordered. The fact cannot be stressed enough that the combination in which this car is presented is incredibly rare, and perhaps the ultimate combination. “Black on Black”, “triple Black”, or also know as Black exterior, with a Black interior and matching Black soft and hard tops;  a true rarity in the world of 280SL’s, and an opportunity that does not happen often.
