Dark Burgundy 1969 Mercedes Benz 280 SL convertible with both the soft top and factory hardtop. This deep dark burgundy car looks like a dark glass of merlot wine, but shimmers in the sunlight as you can see by the video taken outside. This a low mileage car with smooth running 2.8L inline six cylinder engine and four speed automatic transmission. This finely engineered German sports car runs and drives like the day it was new with a heavy and tight feel. Excellent fit and finish as you would expect from a car of this calibre.
