Vehicle Description

All Mercedes convertibles eventually become classics, they say. This one undoubtedly already has: a 280 SL pagoda in the eternally elegant colour combination of dark green paintwork and cognac MB tex interior, delivered in 1969 to the US and imported back to Germany in 2015.
The partly revised 2.8 litre straight six-cylinder engine delivers 125 kW (170 hp) of power. Cylinder head and timing chain together with sprocket have been renewed. Spark plugs and all engine fluids have recently been replaced. For Germany, new H4 headlights were fitted.
The vehicle presents itself in an overall good condition with slight patina and displays no traces of accident damage. The brown convertible top is mechanically sound and has been renewed at some point. A body-coloured hardtop, also in well-preserved shape, is included, as are the original owner’s manual and several repair receipts. A recent Classic Data appraisal estimates the replacement value of this pagoda in condition 2 at € 115,000. Technical approval is valid until 05/2018.
Elegance, style, pure late 1960s convertible feeling – this SL can deliver it all.


The Pagoda – a design classic par excellence!

When presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963, the W 113 had the difficult task of replacing two models at a time, the 190 SL as well as the 300 SL. A task that was almost equivalent to the quadrature of the circle, but was solved brilliantly. Because of its smooth surfaces, the spacious interior and the absence of decorative elements, it came across as very “masculine” and made the predecessors with their rounded styling look outdated.

It was available as 230 SL (1963-1967), 250 SL (1967) and 280 SL (1968-1971), built with either manual or automatic transmission, to a total of 48,912 vehicles. Because of its slightly concave hardtop, available as an accessory, it was nicknamed Pagoda.

The W 113 was suitable for any occasion – be it for the opera, the golf course or the small shopping – and the main thing: it looked good on you!
