Here we have a stunning 1964 Mercedes 230SL Pagoda (w113) 4 speed for your consideration. The extensive receipt history paints a nice picture of a no expense spared owner, who has lovingly cared for this car with an open check book. Receipt totals are over 175,000 in the last 30 years! Needless to say, much is new. This 230 does not disappoint and drives just as good as she looks.

The body of the car has been refinished to a high level and shows beautifully. The chrome and stainless is quite nice, not quite concours level, but 8 out of 10. Doors, hood, and trunk all shut nicely with nice gaps. A hard top is included in sale but needs to be refinished to reflect the condition of the car. Overall the exterior of this car shows extremely well and is ready for your local car shows.

The interior has been extensively restored some years ago and is a highlight of the car. The red interior on the white body is a superb contrast and a desirable color combo. The door light under the dash works, as does the glovebox light! The restored Becker Europa radio works beautifully and produces a warm vintage sound. Gauges have been restored and all work, even the clock. Light switches and turn signals all perform as they should. A full restoration was performed at a high level of all interior components and is a very nice place to spend your time while cruising.

The mechanicals on the car have also been fully rebuilt and all perform as intended. The steering is nice and tight, and the car drives straight and true. Suspension has been fully rebuilt and soaks up the bumps better than most new cars! Engine starts easily and runs out with plenty of power and no odd noises. Gearbox shifts perfect, and finds the gears easily. A full mechanical rebuild was performed at great expense and the results are evident. Engine bay and underside of this car are detailed nicely and show very well.

All in all I would say this 230sl is definitely one of the better vintage Mercedes 230sl’s out there, and second only to the 100 point concours cars. I feel confident in saying that this is the top end of a show quality car. I recently drove her to my local car show and she garnered a crowd with every one saying the same thing, “what a beautiful example of a vintage Mercedes, Wish I could have a car like that”.

Now you can!
