Gateway Classic Cars is privileged to offer for purchase in our Dallas-Fort Worth showroom this stunning and highly desirable 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SE Cabriolet. The exterior is a beautiful, rich dark green with a thick cognac leather interior. The documentation for this vehicle includes a binder full of service records and the original owner’s manual. Features on this collector quality vehicle includes air conditioning, power windows, power steering, steering column automatic transmission, power disc brakes, Becker Europa AM/FM radio with power antenna, whitewall tires, and heat insulating glass.

Mercedes-Benz's elegant Paul Bracq-designed W111 made its debut in 1959 and was produced, in its many variations, through 1971. Among the most desirable variations were the two-door models—the 280 SE Cabriolet and Coupe—which were expensive, virtually hand-built automobiles hailing from the great tradition of German craftsmanship. The wood trim throughout the interior were all genuine solid hardwood. The leather upholstery is thick and comfortable; and both the ride quality and handling are superb. These cars rapidly became favorites of international socialites and celebrities, and they were frequently seen cruising in all of the world's most posh destinations. Just less than 1,400 280SE Cabriolets were assembled from 1968-1971. Their rarity, performance, handling, craftsmanship are all blended perfectly into a design that has become iconic. It is no wonder why the 280SE has become one of the most recognized classic Mercedes-Benz models sought after by collectors today.

1973 Mercedes-Benz 280C

Engine: I-6
Transmission: 3 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 35,909 ( undocumented )

For sale in our Fort Lauderdale showroom we proudly present this 1973 Mercedes-Benz 280C. The 280C was a 2 door coupe variant of the W114 chassis sedans. The coupe variants featured styling which was sleek yet understated at the same time. This example was of the first year of the slightly restyled body with a lower hood line and broader grill than before. While the W114 chassis dates back to 1968 the design was kept fresh with the removal of quarter windows in the front door and Mercedes’ soon to be signature ribbed (for your safety) tail lights. The W114 chassis, much like all Mercedes-Benz models from this era, is an extremely durable and reliable car. This example is an unrestored “survivor” and truly does show how well these cars hold up with simple routine maintenance. Cosmetically this car is in very fine shape. Its original silver paint still shows very well and proves what masters of paint Mercedes-Benz was at the time. Complementing the Silver paint is a tan interior giving the entire car a classic look. Powering the vehicle is the original spec 2.8 Liter M110 inline six cylinder engine. As any Mercedes aficionado will tell you, the M110 series of engines is extremely reliable and will pack on the miles with pleasure. This 280C is equipped with air conditioning, AM/FM radio, cruise control, power steering, seat belts, leather interior, and radial tires.

2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55  AMG

2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG

Engine: 5.5L V8 F 24V
Transmission: 5 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 86,408 ( actual )

Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando Florida is proud to offer This 2003 Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG. Though most people do not realize the Mercedes Benz company’s origins are rooted in the early racing scene. One of probably the most notorious stories was in 1934 Alfred Neubauer, head engineer at the time, directed his crew to grind off all the paint on their factory backed race cars. It had nothing to do with looks but about weight. The company has come a long way since 34 with their biggest priorities being luxury and safety. This 2003 has both but those three little letters behind it is what makes this droptop so special. This 03 has a clean AutoCheck and is ready to hit the open road. Under the hood is the hand-built Supercharged 5.5 LTR V8 that is putting out just shy of 500 ponies. Capable of turning out quarter miles times in the high 12’s this is one luxury hotrod that is as fast as it is beautiful. Of course, with that kind of speed brakes are not your average setup. The 14.2-inch rotors on the front and 13’s in the rear are drilled and vented to stay cool under pressure. The eight piston calipers increase the clamping force tremendously and bringing this droptop down to a halt in very respectable distances. Hit the button and watch as the AMG becomes a transformer, the trunk kicks up as the steel roof is lowered away. Hit the other button and watch as the hideaway roll bar comes up. The interior is full of fun stuff with the bucket seats being covered in some of the nicest leather you have ever seen. If you have been wanting to get one of the nicest fastest droptop’s to ever hit the streets but can’t justify the 6 figure selling prices on newer ones. This well-maintained example could be the right way to go. Options on this 2003 Mercedes Benz Sl55 AMG include, AC, AM/FM/CD, Power Convertible Top, Power Windows, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Cruise Control, Tilt Steering, Leather Interior, and Aluminum Alloy Wheels wrapped in Radial Tires. This 2003 Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG is for sale in our Orlando Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at For additional information please call our knowledgeable staff at (407)771-2000 or email us at If you would like to see it in person, come to our Orlando Showroom, located at 635 Century Point Suite 101, Lake Mary, FL 32746.
