HISTORY FILE
A car with an interesting life! This example was ordered in late 1975 for an Australian resident through the company name, Zawawi Trading. Registered in 1976, the first owner opted for factory collection in Stuttgart, Germany, and the car remained in Switzerland/England for the first 12 months in order to avoid import duty in Australia. Shortly after the cars arrival in Australia, the owner sadly passed away and unable to part with the car for sentimental reasons, the owners widow kept the car in a dry garage for many years. Resisting several offers to buy the car over the years, wanting to preserve the memory of her late husband, the car was used only very sparingly explaining the very low 12,218 miles covered. Eventually, the original owner’s Step Son brought the car into the UK in July 2016 whereby a well-known Aston Martin Dealer purchased the car. A signed letter from the family of the original owner is kept in the history file where all this information is thankfully recorded for the next owner to enjoy.

Upon arrival in the UK with registration and imports duties paid, a full inspection, recommission and main service was carried out with an invoice in the history dated November 2017 for £1,793.16 to document the work carried out. KGF Classic Cars sold the car to loyal customer, Rev. Paul O’Donoghue in early 2018 where it formed part of his eclectic collection, and now upon his decision to part with the car, KGF Classic Cars are delighted to offer this example for sale once more. Appealing to any serious collector wanting one of the very best-preserved examples in existence, this 280SL will delight on every conceivable level.
