Classic Car Auctions says:

Once owned by popular Greek MEP Emmanouil Kefalogiannis...


  • This very smartly presented and very usable 230SL was imported from Crete on a NOVA 
  • On import, all history was lost apart from the original registration document and a few receipts
  • Before import, our vendor states that the car had major works done to the engine and gearbox
  • Fitted with the rare 4-speed manual gearbox, a factory hard-top and a reconditioned soft top
  • Ready to enjoy, this achingly stylish 1960s icon still has Greek music cassettes in the glove box.
