1969 280sl Dark Oliver Restoration Project

This blog is intended to keep my customers and fans of the classic Mercedes-Benz updates with my current restoration projects.

Here’s our current restoration project at Vintage Euro Parts:

I’m working on a 1969 280 sl w113 chassis. A friend of mine had the car and wanted to sell me the hard top, but after some negotiations I ended up purchasing the car. I bought the car without seeing it. I knew it was a rust bucket but was surprised when it showed up on the car carrier. The driver had me sign the dotted line and this rust bucket officially belonged to me.

I removed all the parts from the car and assessed the damage. I made a cart so that the car can sit on. Thanks to K&K MFG for the floor replacements and also with the purchase of some new OEM Mercedes panels I have started welding the body of this car back together.
