About This Car

1964 Mercedes-Benz W113 230 SL Pagoda

Papyrus White with Dark Blue Leather

42,462 miles

Road Tax Exempt. ULEZ Exempt.*

This sublime early Pagoda simply has to be seen.

1964 was the second year of the Mercedes-Benz W113 SL, with just under 7,000 cars built. By the end of 1964, a total of 8,276 ‘Pagodas’ had been produced, of which this car was number 3,529, built in the first quarter of 1964.

Presented in what can only be described as ‘concours’ condition, this car is superb inside, outside and underneath.

It was subject to a comprehensive restoration in 2012, detailed by receipts on file totalling more than £80,000. This involved a complete strip down of the car to it’s component parts, whereupon it was sandblasted and fully professionally repaired before being painstakingly re-assembled. To appreciate the lengths to which a previous owner has gone to restore this car, £80,000 in 2012 was roughly twice the purchase price paid for a very good 230SL Pagoda at auction at the time. This was a true labour of love, showing a high level of commitment to the car itself.

Restored to the original factory specification of Papyrus White with contrasting Blue Interior, this Pagoda presents in the way one might expect a brand new car to appear. The interior is all new, carefully matched to the original specification as it would have presented in 1964. We strongly advise prospective buyers to book an appointment and see this car in the flesh – you will not be disappointed.

*(All vehicles built on or before 1979 are exempt from road tax, on a one year rolling basis, assuming no further changes to this in forthcoming budgets)


Comprehensive restoration, including a complete strip and sandblast of the body.

All new interior.

Over £80,000 in reciepts on file.

Absolutely superb.

Bulkhead Corrosion

Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour – the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.

All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
