"Elegant, precise, and representative. This car has a wonderful history and basically only lacks the customary paperwork in the form of an original instruction manual and other such items."

Description

The car was purchased new in Italy by a Swedish engineer who, after completing his project, returned it to Borlänge, Sweden. It finally found a new new owner in Borlänge and was sold in 1983 to Borås, where the new owner ran it from 1983 to 1990, when a renovation began. The current owner purchased the Pagoda from his friend the owner since he was unmotivated to finish the renovation he began many years ago, and the current owner reasoned that "now something must happen with this car." The engine was completed and extensively refurbished. In actuality, this 230 SL has only had three former owners, and the engine has barely traveled a little more than 100 kilometers since the car was completed.

    The classic Mercedes engine's unmistakable six-cylinder sound, together with a mechanically nice manual transmission and brakes that pull straight and with good effect, all contribute to a wonderful driving sense fitting for the car's age and condition.

  • Interior condition:

    The interior leather, as well as the mat set, are both brand new and gorgeous. Overall, the interior appears to be brand new. Cabriolet roof and hardtop are complete, tidy, and functional.

  • Exterior condition:

    Dunkelrotbraun 460, a remarkably attractive dark reddish-brown solid original color, has been professionally repainted. The chrome accessories and chrome wheel trim for the steel rims are available and included in the luggage compartment.The current owner believes that the car looks better without the chrome wheel trims.

  • General condition:

    This car gives something for both the heart and the brain with its great condition, properly renovated to a high standard in this jaw-dropping color.

Facts about the model

Varje generation av Mercedes-Benz SL blir en så kallad klassiker, vissa nästan direkt, andra först efter viss inkubationstid. En 230 SL som på bilderna hör avgjort till den förra kategorin. Det räcker med att kasta en hastig blick på den skenbart enkla, eleganta karossen för att förstå varför. !

Linjeföringen brukar tillskrivas en under 1950-, 60- och 70-talen välkänd formgivare, Paul Bracq, men projektledarna Karl Wilfert och Friedrich Geiger var minst lika viktiga för tillkomsten av ”Pagodamodellen”, internt kallad W113. Tekniskt sett utgår bilen från den samtida sedangenerationen ”fen-Mercedes” W110/111 men har 35 centimeter kortare axelavstånd. Motorn, en trimmad variant av personbilsseriens maskin, pendelaxlarna bak och den genomgående höga byggkvaliteten var några av kännetecknen – men stilbrottet med föregångarna 190 SL och den extrema 300 SL var samtidigt totalt.

W113 var mer sportbil än 190 SL någonsin blev, samtidigt lättillgänglig för en större publik än den ur fabrikens racingverksamhet skapade 300 SL. Plötsligt såg de gamla SL-bilarna rätt gammalmodiga ut. Den nya serien var en modern, snabb och högklassig touringvagn för två, med gott om plats för bagage och stor bekvämlighet, ändå inte främmande för mer aktiva körinsatser.

Tre motorutföranden fanns under modellens levnad 1963–71. Av dem anses just 230 SL vara spänstigast. Motorn har rivig karaktär och de speciella metallbussningarna i hjulupphängningen ger skärpa i framfarten. På 280 SL ersattes de av gummibussningar och komforten ökade. Så kallade halvgördeldäck var en annan teknisk nyhet i 230 SL, en konstruktion som skulle ge både grepp och den komfort Mercedeskunder krävde.
