Mercedes 280 SL Gets First Wash and Detailing in 37 Years

Until 1972, this Mercedes-Benz was driven daily for 10 years. The owner, a doctor from 1936 parked it in his garage in the winter of 1982 and since then, the car was never moved. His son David wanted to surprise his now 83 year-old dad and got permission to pull the classic 1969 Mercedes 280 SL out of their garage and get it cleaned, detailed and ready for restoration. The guys from AMMO NYC were hired for the job, and in this video they go through the step by step process of removing mold, dead animals, dust, dirt and show how to bring oxidized paint back to life.
