The first model, the 230SL, was a comfortable, well-equipped and compact two-seat sports touring machine that provided better performance than the 190SL. Instantly recognizable by virtue of their unique and strong detachable hardtop design, the cars were colloquially known as “pagodas”. The Mercedes-Benz W113 had a distinctive look and was manufactured from 1963 through to 1971 and featured a peppy little fuel injected 2.3 litre straight six engine. The larger capacity 280 was introduced in 1967 and remained largely unchanged until 1971 when the W107 model appeared in the dealer showrooms. This Pagoda originated from America and just last year underwent a very comprehensive restoration. The whole body was sandblasted and painted. In addition to paint, new suspension parts were fitted and the braking system overhauled. The interior is said to be original and in great condition throughout. The pagoda hardtop and soft-top convertible roof are also said to be in good condition. The seller states that the manual gearbox operates perfectly, the engine is in good order and is keen to point out that the air conditioning functions correctly. With all the recent work done on this, the most desirable of the W113 models, it represents very good value indeed and would be a delightful driver for its lucky new owner that you can drive and enjoy it today!
