The Mercedes-Benz W113 roadsters, designed by Paul Bracq, were produced from 1963 through to 1971 with their distinctive 'Pagoda' hardtop roof giving them their contemporary nickname. All models feature an inline six-cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection using a mechanical pump system adapted from the diesel engine. All are rear-wheel drive and are equipped with independent rear suspension, a feature that greatly improved road handling. It made its debut at the prestigious Geneva Motor Show in March 1963 where Technical Director Fritz Nallinger introduced it as follows, "It was our aim to create a very safe and fast sports car with high performance which, despite its sports characteristics, provides a high degree of travelling comfort." Mercedes-Benz Chief Engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut, who was as competent behind the wheel as most racing drivers, demonstrated the capabilities of the 230 SL on a tight short race track near Montreux in 1963 where he put up a best lap time of 47.5 seconds and, incidentally, out-performed Mike Parkes in his Ferrari 250GT.

The Mercedes-Benz W113 roadsters, designed by Paul Bracq, were produced from 1963 through to 1971 and were known as the 'pagoda roof' SL. All models boast an inline six-cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection using a mechanical pump system adapted from the diesel engines. Rear-wheel drive configuration was complemented by independent rear suspension, a feature that greatly improved road handling. Most of these early SL's were sold with both the removable hardtop and a soft top. In 1960, Ballinger eventually proposed to develop a completely new 220 SL design based on technology from the W112. This led to the W113 platform with an improved fuel-injected 2.3 litre M127 inline-six engine and the distinctive 'pagoda' hardtop roof. The 230 SL made a remarkable debut at the prestigious Geneva Motor Show in March 1963 where Nallinger introduced it as follows; "It was our aim to create a very safe and fast sports car with high performance which, despite its sports characteristics, provides a very high degree of travelling comfort." This white Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda was first registered on 15th May 1964 to Lady Katie Fraser of Allander, wife of Sir Hugh Fraser who owned the House
• Recent body restoration • Rare factory manuals and sales brochure • Only 2 previous owners A step change for Mercedes from the 190 to 230 SL meant a complete refresh on the chassis with safety paramount and a more powerful engine, creating desirable roadsters which have become increasingly collectible in recent years. Our 230SL is presented as you would expect, having had only 3 owners in over 50years. The most recent owner commissioned an extensive body restoration, whilst maintaining the original trim and brightwork. This work is documented on two discs. The car drives extremely well, with effortless changes from the auto box, and has both soft and hard top hood options. A Becker Mexico stereo/satnav has been installed keeping period looks while providing modern sound and helpful directions. Set on period correct white wall tyres. As part of a larger collection this car has been used sparingly by the owner since restoration.
The nut and bolt restoration, was carried by leading Mercedes and Pagoda specialists and was undertaken to the highest possible standards, a good file of photographs exists to document the process and since restoration the car has covered just 500 dry weather miles, the restoration retained the correct details including matching dark wheel, and gear lever top. Underneath the car presents as if new. The car is accompanied by extensive history file which includes records from the car's single family ownership which lasted from new until 2012, still with the car is the are the original Mercedes Benz books including the stamped service book which records religious maintenance by Mercedes Benz Main Dealers from delivery until 1987, also accompanying this exceptional car is the tools, hard and soft top roofs and the spare wheel. A wonderful Pagoda presented in its original highly desirable specification, with unrepeatable provenance and restored to a world class standard.
1966 230 SL Pagoda 113 series Finished in moss green metallic with ivory M-B tex interior 63,000 miles Sold by ourselves to the last owner approximately 2 years ago and we are delighted to have this stunning example back in stock. We purchased it first time around from a gentleman who had owned and cherished it for nearly 30 years! It was always garaged during his ownership and certainly never used in rain and bad weather. Choosing to entrust servicing duties mostly to his local main dealer, the history file contains these invoices along with MOT’s dating back to 1977! More recently the car has been fitted with new carpets, a new soft top and has had concourse detailing to the engine compartment. This car has perfect panel gaps and deep lustrous paintwork and also happens to be one of the finest driving Pagoda’s I have ever had the pleasure of being behind the wheel of. A very fine unmolested example.

1965 230SL Pagoda finished in gold with a black interior and supplied with a black hardtop. Manual car Within the vast history file according to some documents, the bodywork was restored around 1987 - 1988, when new sills were fitted, along with an engine overhaul In April 1989, at which time the mileage was recorded as 61,340, the car was sold by Christies to a Mr and Mrs Dieter Kiel of Plymouth. During their ownership, the car was maintained fastidiously by Daley Motors of Plymouth, with every receipt & MoT documented, along with parts invoices from Mercedes-Benz. The couple were to own ‘DYX 790C' for 15 years, before selling the car in 2004, to a Mr Maurice Webb, who kept it for a further 4 years before himself selling to the next owner, a Mr S. McInerney. The latter named keeper took ownership of this 230SL until 2014 when the previous keeper purchased it. Upon purchase, they sent the car to classic Mercedes-Benz specialists, Roger Edwards Motors of Amersham, for fine tuning, and in the winter of 2014 spent £3,518 having the rear axle removed & reassembled with a new centre bush, new top mounts, replacement rubber boots all round, new shock absorbers and a new alternator fitted. When we purchased the car, it presented very well with a few minor blemishes, we inspected the car on the ramp to begin our usual pre-sale inspection only to find the floors have been welded up very poorly at some recent time in its life. Once we peeled the first layer of filler, wax oyl and sheet metal off we found it was more like a puff pastry, layers and layers of repairs. The simple answer was to start again. Since our purchase and part of our usual sales preparation we have spent vast amounts on this car to bring it up to our usual standards, we have replaced all floor and sill components, to include foot wells etc basically the centre section of the car, with this comes the door alignments which are now perfect. and we have treated her to a complete glass out re-spray to its original colour to our usual show standard. Any rubbers or components that needed replacing throughout the process have been replaced. Brand New 5 x White wall tyres really set the car off nicely Complete Service 12 Months MOT It now presents flawlessly and is ready to take and summer jaunt in its stride.

A complete design change for Mercedes-Benz, the 230SL followed the 190SL successes introduced in 1963 at Geneva, Technical Director Prof. Fritz Nallinger focused on increased power and safety quoting “It was our aim to create a very safe and fast sports car with high performance, which despite its sports characteristics, provides a very high degree of traveling comfort” The 230SL is the first sports car from Mercedes to feature a rigid passenger cell, designing crumple zones and impact absorption onto the new shortened S class chassis. The rounding of the corners and new roof lines brought the nickname “Pagoda” at launch. Our 230SL has an extensive history as one owner enjoyed it for over 37years, 25 of those in storage until his retirement. In 2010 it benefitted from mechanical and bodywork refurbishment and has covered only 1,200 miles since. Works detailed include engine rebuild, gearbox and rear axle overhaul, renewing brake lines, calipers and drums, then unleaded conversion included full sonic fuel tank clean and new fuel lines. All these works are finished with a stainless exhaust system to enhance the driving pleasure. Body and trim were then restored by recognised coach and trim works. Although delivered to its first 1966 owner in blue, it was repainted red in 1972 by its second longstanding owner red to match his wifes car colour and has faithfully remained this colour throughout the restoration. The car remains in pristine order throughout, including the underside.
