Details Specification Condition Report
  • This 1964, left-hand drive, German-spec, 230SL was delivered new to Berlin finished in Dark Bordeaux Red (DB573G) with a matching hardtop, Parchment interior and Beige soft top
  • Exported to Texas in the mid-sixties by its next owner who subsequently sold it to an enthusiast in Virginia, who was to use it lightly for the following 32 years
  • The engine was replaced in 2007 with a factory-correct M127 II unit (included in a £15,000 bill). Only some 3,000 miles since
  • Much recent attention by our vendor including welding to the floorplan, new carpets and a new soft top
  • Dark Bordeaux Red is a rare colour for a Pagoda and when combined with the lovely Parchment interior and the new Maroon carpets piped in beige, the result is a real head-turner
  • In our vendor's words "It drives beautifully, it's unrestored, a good quality driver or a full nut and bolt candidate later on"
  • With 122,200km (75,310m) indicated, and only 3,000 of these on the new engine, we feel this remarkably pretty little 'Pagoda' is sensibly guided
