Back in 1963, the all-new Mercedes-Benz 230SL represented a huge improvement over the outgoing 190SL roadster. Its 150 hp, six-cylinder engine replaced the 190’s four-cylinder, and it was gradually increased in size to the most desirable 180 hp, 2.8-liter engine in late 1967. The bulbous bodywork of the 190 was replaced by Paul Bracq’s crisp, angular design, with its unusual concave hardtop roof that led to the famous “Pagoda” sobriquet. After the W113’s demise in 1971, the new R107 generation of Mercedes SL would be produced for the next 20 years.

This early 280SL, presented in an eye-popping Signal Red on black, features a desirable manual gearbox and a recent engine rebuild. Bought directly from the daughter of the original owner, this car has been a straight, rust-free Arizona vehicle all its life until our acquisition and subsequent restoration by us. A sympathetic recommissioning, supervised by a marque expert, ensures a respectable appearance while maintaining the car’s original charm and character.

Please note that this car is currently in the last stages of restoration and will be priced once complete.
