It’s not all about repairs and restorations when we take in classic cars at White’s Bodyworks. Sometimes the vehicle just needs a vintage vehicle respray to get it looking good again. That was the case with this 1967 Mercedes SL280.
Mercedes, of course, is a classy brand of vehicle and one that we see a lot of on our roads. Back in the 60s and 70s, however, it was the luxury car and the one that all successful people drove if they didn’t like the alternative Rolls Royce brand.
This soft-top car was actually a joy to see in our workshop. We usually associate the older Mercedes with more substantial body designs. This two-seat sports vehicle, however, looks more like the MGB than a traditional Mercedes and certainly had a racy feel to it.

You won’t find too many of these cars still on British roads but their classic sport design is certainly one that gets collectors going. It’s probably one of the more valuable classic cars on the market and if you can get your hands on one for renovation or restoration, despite the work that may need carrying out, the return on investment can be worth it.
