This lovely W113 Mercedes-Benz 230Sl Pagoda first hit the roads in 1965. After it came to the Netherlands in 2000 it has only be owned by two people.
The W113 Pagoda is an iconic classic. Especially in the US, it was an overwhelming sales success. European supplied Pagodas are therefore relatively rare.
This one is in great shape. The car has been subjected to a full restoration in the past and has been well maintained ever since. This is the version that world-famous Mercedes-Benz engineer Rudolph Uhlenhaut was most proud of. The iconic M127 straight-six engine is attached to an automatic transmission, a first for an SL. The 230SL develops 150 PS with the engine being a direct derivative from the legendary M180 engine. This 230SL comes in a lovely colour combination of a white exterior and Medium blue interior. The bodywork is in good condition. The panelwork is nice and thin with correct alignment. The respray also included the hardtop. The paintwork is still very neat with minimal signs of use. The seat leather has a few small tears but still sits really well. We have already
treated the leather which is now once more nice and supple and will give the new owner more years of pleasure. The dashboards and carpets are furthermore very neat.
Mechanically the previous owner took good care of the car. The engine runs as smooth as can be. The 230SL is a great car to tour over long distances and thanks to its typical Mercedes-Benz build quality this is no problem at all. The Pagoda is assisted by its original power steering. Over the last few years the brakes, suspension bushes and battery have been replaced. This car drives exactly as you would expect from a proper Mercedes-Benz. Invoices relating to this maintenance are of course included in the car’s itinerary. The car is therefore mechanically as well as visually in fine condition, all you need to worry about is getting in and choosing a nice destination.
