A Dirty 1969 Mercedes 280 SL Gets It’s First Wash In More Than 37 Years

MercedesCar detailing team AMMO NY shows us how they restored a 1969 Mercedes stored for 37 years. The job was a surprise for David’s father, who hadn’t seen the car since 1982.

With painstaking care, the folks at AMMO NY spent a day restoring a 1969 Mercedes 280 SL, which had been the car David’s father drove to work every day for 10 years. The vehicle had been in the garage for 37 years and was opened up to fresh air for the first time since 1982.

We agree with one fan’s appreciation of the gesture involved in restoring a father’s old vehicle: “What a nice thing to do for the dad. I loved his ear to ear smile when he saw it. It’s a gorgeous car and it turned out really well.”
