1964 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Manual – Offered at No Reserve

From the Estate of a Gentleman Collector - Comprehensive restoration to a high standard


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.

Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, this beautiful example has been restored to a high standard and wants no more than to be enjoyed by its lucky next owner. Finished in gunmetal grey with a sumptuous wine red leather interior, the 230SL is fitted with the much sportier four-speed manual gearbox. This lovely SL is a true credit to its owner and a tempting prospect for the collector.
