1964 Mercedes Benz W113 230SL with Beige Leather

Dark Blue (332) with Beige Leather / 230SL

Principal Facts:

A lovely low owner car in a fantastic colour combination with a recent interior refresh. Ready to be used with room for exterior improvement – an affordable Pagoda.

2.3 litre straight six with automatic gearbox and period radio.

Condition Synopsis:

This Mercedes-Benz 230SL was built in 1964 and has spent time in Quebec before returning to the UK. It has been with the same owner since 2016, and is now offered for sale once more. Finished in the attractive shade of Midnight Blue over beige, the car benefits from a significant overhaul of the interior with new carpets, seating and door cards making it a supremely pleasant place to sit. Outside the Midnight Blue paintwork presents well, with room for improvement in the cosmetics. It drives very well, changes gear as it should and brakes just like a good 230SL should. While the 230SL might not have the raw appeal of a later 280SL, it also has the advantage of a much lower price of entry - A good 230SL is just as enjoyable to drive as the later cars, and can be more rewarding with the raw feel of the earlier engine. At the asking price, this is an affordable route into ownership of these beautiful cars, making this a very appealing classic Mercedes-Benz indeed.

History File:

It’s hard to paint a picture on what early life was like for this car, however we can see from the paper trail that significant work was done in 2016, including the refresh of the interior. The car was stripped to rectify and prevent any metalwork issues at the time, before the new interior was fitted.

I have followed SLSHOP with interest for some years now and recently took the plunge and purchased my dream car – they did not disappoint!
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Their communication was excellent and they kept me
informed every step of the way. Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase!

I have just purchased a 280SL from SLSHOP. I have already purchased several parts from SLSHOP and have found all members of staff most helpful and it is more like dealing with a club than a commercial enterprise I would highly recommend using SLSHOP for cars, parts and most importantly impartial advice.

They put up with my indecision, inexperience and last minute demands and my car is the best thing I’ve ever bought. The most impressive thing about them is the after care though. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they’ve given me the best advice to make sure I get the most out of my car. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them all?
