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 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.

Top speed was in excess of 120mph. The 230SL even managed a debut competition victory, winning the Spa-Sofia-Liège Rally in the hands of Eugen Bohringer.

Christened ‘pagoda top’ after their distinctive cabin shape, these SL models were amongst the best-loved sports-tourers of their day and continue to be highly sought after by collectors.

Mercedes-Benz convertibles of all kinds have been on a rise for some time, and W113 Pagodas such as this 230SL are some of the most enjoyable and usable cars out there.

This fabulous UK-registered car has had just two owners from new, and pleasingly has never been welded, although it has benefitted from a repaint in its original shade, and replacement convertible soft-top.

Finished in a stunning shade of Green with a contrasting black leather interior, and supplied in excellent condition in all respects, in the world of the W113 Pagoda we feel this is a very safe bet indeed.
