The Mercedes-Benz W111 series was produced from 1959 to 1968 with two door coupés and cabriolets being produced from 1961 to 1971. Design of a replacement for the two-door Pontons began in 1957 with the emphasis on the exterior styling. Some of the mock-ups and prototypes show that Mercedes-Benz attempted to give the two-door car a front styling similar to the Pagoda roadster. The rear bodywork persisted however and, although officially still called a 'fintail', the rear end design had no chrome fin highlights. Production began in late 1960 and in February of the next year, the coupé was premiered in Stuttgart for the 75th anniversary of the opening of the Mercedes-Benz Museum. The 220 SE was superseded in early autumn 1965 by the 250 SE which featured the new 2496 cm3 M129 engine, producing 150 horsepower, which gave it a significant improvement in top speed, 120mph, and 0-60 acceleration in 12 seconds. Visibly the changes only affected the new 14" rims with new hub cabs and beauty rings; this was to accommodate the larger disk brakes and the new rear axle from the W108 family. First registered in Hamburg, Germany, this example has spent much of its life in Riverside, California w

Auto, A/C, power steering and brakes. 151,428 miles. Original engine (#003902). Purchased in 1973 by a Pacific Palisades CA couple who owned it for 30 years after which they sold it to their neighbor who owned it for another 10. Around 2013 it was bought by the owner of the service facility that had worked on it for the last 32 +/- years - Pacific Motors on Pico Blvd in Santa Monica. They did a sympathetic restoration, stripped it for paint, removed the engine for access to engine bay and did a total repaint in Silver. Suspension, brakes, etc. cleaned, repaired or replaced. Mechanically the car is superb. Recent valve job and A/C overhaul, etc. Runs superbly with a nice gear shift, excellent brakes and steering. It has also had bumpers re-chromed, five new Michelin tires fitted etc. New canvas soft top and wool roof liner, new seats front and back, new door panels, sun visors and carpets, wood refinished etc. Comes with its spare, jack and tools, handbook and assorted service receipts. I would estimate the cost of the work at around
The Mercedes-Benz W113 is a two-seat roadster/coupé, introduced at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show and produced from 1963 through to 1971. It replaced both the legendary 300 SL and the 190 SL. The W113 SL was developed under the auspices of Mercedes-Benz Technical Director Fritz Nallinger, chief engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut and head of styling Friedrich Geiger. The lead designers devised its distinctive, patented, slightly concave hardtop which inspired the 'Pagoda' nickname. All models were equipped with an in-line six-cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection. The bonnet, boot lid, door skins and tonneau cover were made of aluminium to reduce weight. The comparatively short and wide chassis, combined with an excellent suspension, powerful brakes and radial tyres gave the W 113 superb handling for its time. The styling of the front, with its characteristic upright Bosch headlights and simple chrome grille, dominated by the large three-pointed star in the nose panel, paid homage to the then already legendary 300 SL roadster. Very few were fitted with a manual gearbox and the 250 SL also had a far superior seven main bearing engine as opposed to four in the 230 SL. This lefthand drive
