A Mercedes 230SL Pagoda. Ideal Basis For A Fulfilling Restoration.

We are pleased to be able to offer this 1966 Mercedes 230SL W113 2-seater roadster with hardtop. Often named the Pagoda, this car is identifiable by its stacked headlights, and slight concave hardtop roof design. The W113 was made between 1963 and 1971, and in all just over 19,000 cars went to USA.

This Pagoda 230SL was imported by ourselves and is a good basis for a restoration. The engine starts instantly and the car drives and brakes well, and runs through the gears, both up and down the box. Our car has the 2308cc inline six engine giving out 150bhp, mated to a 4-speed automatic gearbox. The car has had paintwork in the past, and the Signal Red bodywork retains a good shine. The car needs attention and the ready availability of panels and parts mean it could be restored to a very high standard. Some of the Pagodas in top condition are fetching between £70-80k.

The car appears to be complete, even retaining the body colour hub caps on the roadwheels. The car has had new seats and carpets recently, as can been seen in the images on romangarages.com. We have graded the car as a project because there will be work to do in the future, and to go through the UK MOT if it remains in UK. Note too that there is no soft top with this car. Because of these points there isn’t a warranty on the car, and we believe we have described the car fairly. But we very strongly recommend that any potential purchaser comes and views the car for themselves. The car is view by appointment only please.

The car is at our Grantham showroom but will in due course be moved to our storage facility near Kings Lynn.
Take this opportunity to get yourself a highly worthwhile project.
Viewing is by appointment, so please call first to ensure availability.
