Very Rare 280 SLC | 1981 “X” Registered | Only 33K Miles | Signal Red (1981)




Very Rare 280 SLC | 1981 “X” Registered | Only 33K Miles | (568) Signal Red with (031) Black Cloth seating | Ref 1945
Standard Equipment:  Automatic transmission. Displaying period, body coloured hub caps , central locking, electric windows and sunroof, heat insulating green glass, graduated tinted windscreen, front fog lamps, power steering. Registered in 1981.
This car was brought in 1981 by a collector and sold again with 3 months to its second owner who has kept her ever since. It is clear to see that this stunning SLC was always well maintained and cherished throughout its ownership.
The service book has 19 entries and is accompanied by a large history file, documents and MoT certificates all verifying the low mileage on this stunning 280SLC.
As with all of our cars this example will be sold with a full service using correct filters and fluids, a comprehensive pre delivery inspection which includes multiple checks and extensive tests… anything that is found to be requiring attention is attended to or flagged for attention which is why our cars take time to come to market. The cars are then independently MoT inspected and come with a 24 month SL Shop warranty. Crucially ALL of our cars now come with a BULK HEAD warranty. As you may have learned this is the Achilles heel for SL’s and buying a car from The SL Shop means you will not have this issue which effects every car to some degree and can, in some cases be a very expensive repair
