1964 Mercedes 230SL Pagoda


Introduced at the Geneva Salon in March 1963 as replacement for the 190SL, the 230SL abandoned its predecessor’s four-cylinder engine in favour of a 2.3 liter fuel-injected six cylinder engine derived from that of the 220SE and producing 150bhp. An instant classic, the body design was all-new while beneath the skin the running gear was conventional Mercedes-Benz, featuring all-round independent suspension (by swing axles at the rear), disc front/drum rear brakes and a choice of four-speed manual or automatic transmissions.

With a top speed in excess of 120mph, the 230SL debuted competition victory and ended up winning the Spa-Sofia-Liège Rally in the hands of Eugen Bohringer.

Finished beautifully in black with tanned leather interior and complemented by its chromed wheel arches, this head-turning Pagoda wasp purchased by its current vendor some ten years ago. Offered with a MOT valid until March 2019 and equipped with its factory hard-top, this fantastic piece of German engineering is ready to be enjoyed by its next custodian for both the forthcoming winter months as well as next years summer.
