We are proud to offer this truly rare find 1969 Mercedes Benz 280SL convertible. This wonderful example had only one owner from 1968 to 2016. The car was purchased new at Stahl Motor Company in Monterey California and remained in the area for until 2016 when it was sold to a collector client of ours in Houston, Texas. We recently purchased this stunning Mercedes 280SL “Pagoda” from him to offer it for sale. This car has been meticulously maintained throughout its life and the service book is stamped from 1968 to 2002. In addition was always stored in a climate controlled garage. It is finished in the original color combination of White with Black MB-tex interior. The 280SL presented here had only one beautiful repaint in its life. The seats are in excellent original condition and most of the carpet is original as well. It also comes with new Coco mats. There is NO rust anywhere on this car. The underside is solid and as dry as you will find a Mercedes 280SL and the trunk area is the cleanest you will find on a W113 Mercedes.
This special Mercedes comes with all the original books including the data card with a list of all the original options. It has Air Conditioning which we recently serviced and blows cold. Other options include power steering, white wall tires, German canvas top and an original Becker radio. All options and the data card are pictured in the gallery. Of course it comes with the original hardtop also in excellent original condition. Furthermore, it comes with the original Mercedes 280SL tool kit and Jack.
This SL runs and drives perfect. It has great power and handles like a dream. The car has great oil pressure and exceptional compression tested in 11/23 with readings of 160 to 175 psi across all 6 cylinders. The results are also posted in the gallery. We do have a driving video and also a walk around video as well. Overall this is an exceptional and mostly original car with only two owners since new. It can be driven anywhere and is a pleasure to drive.
We are absolutely thrilled to offer this exceptional 1974 Jaguar E-type Series 3 V-12 Roadster. This wonderful Jaguar XKE was built on March 15th of 1974 and the original date of dispatch was March 28 of 1974. It is currently refinished in its original color combination of Silver with new Dark Blue leather interior. The Heritage Certificate is included and confirms that this is a matching numbers Jaguar E-type Roadster in its original color combination. We purchased this special Jaguar from the family of the same owner of nearly 40 years late in 2022. He purchased the car on 3/24/1984 from which we understand to be the original owner with 56,000 miles. The current original mileage is 64,851 miles (about 1,600 miles a year). The previous owner was fastidious about the maintenance of this car as he kept all service invoices going back to 1984 with the corresponding mileage listed. Furthermore, he has the car repainted in its gorgeous original color of Silver and has the interior reupholstered with new leather, carpeting and interior kit in the original Dark Blue color. Other cosmetic additions included new chrome wire wheels.
We have since gone through this entire car investing close to $20,000 in mechanical and cosmetic improvements with all work done by E-type V-12 specialists. All work is detailed in the invoice in the gallery, but some of the highlights include but not limited to a new Dark Blue stay fast Robbins (cloth) soft top with a matching convertible top boot also in cloth. Also, we removed the rear cage and dropped the rear end (rear suspension) to replace hub bearings, stub axle U-joints and install new driveshaft U-joints. We installed a new complete stainless steel exhaust system. In addition, we installed a new heater fan, resistor and heater core. We repaired the Air conditioning with all three speeds of the AC working and the temperature blowing at 41.7 degrees Fahrenheit. Furthermore, we went through all the wiring and switches on this Jaguar. All lights were gone through and are working as they should. A new trunk kit was installed as well. The front shocks were replaced also. We did a full oil service and lubricated all grease fittings throughout. As we do with all our cars, we did a compression test on 9/10/2023 and the results were excellent on ALL 12 cylinders between 140 to 155 psi on all of them. A new oil pressure sending unit was installed and the oil pressure is perfect as well. The only paint work we did was the rear pan was painted black. We stripped this down and repainted it in the original Silver color it was originally supposed to be. Yes we understand it does have the original black bumpers on the car. We decided to keep this as it was originally delivered, but don’t dismiss this car because of the bumper as we can change to the earlier non black rubber bumper conversion. We decided to keep this as it was originally delivered, but don’t dismiss this car because of the big BLACK bumpers as we can change to the earlier non rubber bumper conversion. We have done this conversion on several later E-type Series 3 V-12 cars and can share images of how this will look with the earlier bumpers installed.
We focus a lot of our time on drivability of these cars and this car is joy to drive. The engine holds temperature as our fans are wired to ignition to run all the time as we usually sell to clients in warmer climates. The temperature gauge has not gone over the in the middle of “Normal” since we have owned it and driven close to 400 miles, even on the hottest NC days of 95 degrees plus. It is easy to drive and power steering is effortless and makes driving a pleasure. The automatic gearbox shifts nicely and does not clunk into gear or downshifting. The brakes feel good and the car stops straight. There are no vibrations in the steering wheel at any speed or over bumps. This Jaguar handles and turns very precise. She has excellent power and can keeps up with modern traffic with ease. This car is so smooth that you will barely notice you are cruising at 75mph. There are no unusual noises coming from this car on driving, hard braking or on turns. It starts with ease does not need full choke to fire. This is one of our favorite Jaguar E-type V-12s we have owned and is a pleasure to drive anywhere. Overall, any potential buyer would be hard pressed to find a better original Jaguar E-type V-12 Roadster that is completely sorted, ready to go and has the meticulously maintained history this car has.
NEW ARRIVAL/IN PROCESS: We are ecstatic to offer this stunning 1965 Jaguar E-type Series 1 Roadster. This unique car was owned by the same family for nearly 40 years until we purchased it in the fall of 2023. It was previously restored and a show winner, but had been sitting for about 4 years years in a dry garage. We are going to bring this car back to its former glory with some driving/performance upgrades and going through the entire car (new brake system, carburetors rebuilt, all gauges working, new suspension, electrical gone through, new fuel tank, etc.) In addition we will be upgrading and changing the interior to Biscuit with a Tan Stay fast (Canvas) top and matching convertible boot.

This stunning 1970 Jaguar E-type Series 2 Fixed Head Coupe was built on December 30 of 1969 and the date of dispatch was February 10 of 1970. It is finished in its original color combination of Silver with Black interior and is an all matching numbers car (chassis, engine, transmission and body) as per the Jaguar Heritage Certificate. This car comes with original bill of sale and was sold new to Raymond C. Herrel of Columbia Ohio for the total price of $6,770.00. This car had 4 owners since new and 3 of the owners drove the car. The car underwent a 5 year restoration that the owner had completed in 2017. The engine was rebuilt during the restoration. Furthermore, the transmission was completely gone through. The rear end and all the suspension were rebuilt. This Jaguar was completely stripped and the entire car was rebuilt from the ground up on a very good original car. There has been only 2,654 miles placed on this Jaguar since this comprehensive restoration and about 600 of those miles were driven by us.
A recent service to the car included rebuilding the carburetors, a new Bluetooth radio installed, new smaller diameter original style wooden steering wheel, four wheel alignment, oil change, water pump replacement, seats and center console recovered, new style alternator, new battery and valve adjustment. Over $14,000 was invested in this car in upgrades and improvements in 2022 and 2023. A compression test was completed and the results were excellent of 140 to 150 psi on each cylinder.
This Jaguar is one of the finest driving E-types we have ever owned and we have owned a lot of them. Well over 250 Jaguar E-types bought, sold and still counting. It has plenty of power and handles like a dream. The transmission is silky smooth and the clutch feels great. In addition, the car stops straight and true. Thanks to additional cooling, the engine temperature stays cool even on 95 degree plus days. Also, yes a Classic Auto Air Conditioning System can be installed at an additional cost. This car is all pure Jaguar E-type and is an exceptional driver with phenomenal torque and power. The engine was built by a race car engine builder. Unlike other Jaguar E-types offered that are presented in photo studios or with professional photography to look good, this car not only looks gorgeous, but drives as well as all Jaguar E-types aspire to. This Jaguar E-type can be driven across the country or on road trips with ease, but where this e-type and other e-types shine are on back, country or open roads. The Jaguar here presents the best of both worlds as it can be shown as it is or driven just about anywhere.
