Mercedes-Benz 230 SL W113 Pagoda — 1964

"Surprisingly undamaged and in a clean condition. Body restoration performed in the 1980's with only to minor dry paints cracks visible showing it's age."


This Pagoda was reportedly bought by the Swedish ambassador in Brussels and imported to Sweden in June 1975. The car was sold a few years later to a man in Helsingborg that made full body renovation in the mid-eighties and repainted in burgundy color originally it was blue. Since then the car has been used very sparingly and the current owner has had it standing unused in his collection for the last seven years.

  • Mechanical condition:

    The pictures underneath the car show its thoroughly fine technical condition. The engine could not be started at the time of documentation, the fuel pump and injection nozzles are under renovation.

  • Interior condition:

    The décor appears to be original, this particular copy has vinyl seats that are whole and clean without any cracks. The European back seat is currently unmounted. .

  • Exterior condition:

    Deep Burgundy Red paint has a beautiful shine, it can be an original color, but we have not been able to determine exactly which one. According to information in the Car Register, the car was blue at the time of importation in 1975. The color code plate should be in the engine compartment at the top left side, but its missing. Repainted after a well-executed body renovation in the eighties, the car feels almost like an original car. During the same renovation, a new roof was also installed, and it appears that it has never been raised, the rear window cover remains in place.

  • General condition:

    The paint has a couple of small dry cracks that doesn’t disturb the overall impression; it’s been very well kept over the years and remains stylish.
