Factory 4-Speed:

1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL
Euro Roadster!

Please wait a few moments while our high-resolution photos load.

The successor of the coveted Mercedes 280SL "Pagoda" Roadster, the 350SL of 1971 was the first open Mercedes-Benz motorcar offerering a V8 engine in the company's long and illustrious history.

The overwhelming majority of customers ordered it with the automatic transmission; only a handful ordered it with the 4-on-the-floor stickshift option.

This is one of these ultra rare birds!
The Euro 350SL offers a high-compression 200 horsepower 3.5-liter V8 engine, not available in the United States. Mated to the manual tranny and being of rather light weight, it provides true sports car performance, on par with a contemporary Porsche 911S!

More to come . . .


Like a virgin!
Yep, this is what an original, unmolested undercarriage on a 45 year-old California car looks like!
