Description

The car has a forty year history from new in a dry warm climate in the USA and from there on in the south of Sweden. Repainted 25 years ago and the paintwork is in good shape, but a closer look in good light show signs of small cracks and scratches. The chromeworks looks nice, and the interior in black leatherette is well maintained. Some surface on the boot floor due to a poor boot lid rubber.
A little visible surface rust underneath on the chassi itself, but nothing on the doors. The car passed the Swedish MOT just recently.
Overall a very good condtion compared to other unrestored examples, presentable and a fine appearence. The speedometer was exchanged 2016 at 88.000 miles. Judged on the car's condition we estimate that the true mileage is around 200 000 km. Recipts on SEK 40 000 from an engine service and check-up at a Mercedes-Benz workshop, and on top of that a big file binder with lots of interesting paperwork.

Facts about the model

Med formgivning av legendariske Paul Bracq och grundteknik från fenmodellen blev resultatet mycket lyckat för Pagodan – eller W113 som den heter på Mercedesspråk.
Motorn hade sin grund i den vanliga till sedanmodellen och ihop med pendelaxlar bak hade man skapat en sportbil som var betydligt sportigare än tidigare generationen SL. Detta var en modern, snabb och högklassig touring för två.
Under modellens levnad mellan 1963 och 1971 kom flera motorstorlekar. Av dem brukar 230SL sägas vara den spänstigaste. 230SL presenterades på Genevésalongen 1963 och tre år senare kom den med femväxlad låda som tillval.
I december samma år inleddes sedan tillverkningen av 250SL som idag räknas som den ovanligaste Pagodan. 1967 kunde man som tillval köpa SL med nya karossvarianten hardtop, med två extrasäten bak istället för sufflett. Året efter ersättes 250 av 280 – som blev den mest tillverkade.
1971 rullade sista Pagodan ur fabriken. Då hade det tillverkats sammanlagt 48 912 stycken. Av dessa såldes sammanlagt 261 stycken nya i Sverige. I USA såldes de med helröda baklampor och andra framlampor, AC och lasthylla bakom stolarna istället för två små barnsäten.
