1966 Mercedes-Benz W113 230SL with Cream Leather

Dark Blue (332) with Cream Leather / 230SL

Principal Facts:

A 1966 230SL, this Pagoda’s in fine mechanical condition and proudly wears a fine patina of its near six decades of use. That presents a great opportunity for its next owner to buy it and continue to use it and enjoy it just as it is, or to titivate it and add value as part of the ownership process. Whatever route you decide, it’s a great value proposition, and looks fantastic in its dark blue paintwork.

Condition Synopsis:

We’ve certainly got more polished, cleaner examples in our showroom here, but that’s not to take away from the overall fine condition of this car. It unashamedly exhibits its use, this clearly a car that’s been cared for, but also driven and enjoyed. The light interior shows some evidence of use, there’s a patch repair in the blue fabric hood (the hardtop is in fine condition), but the bodywork’s straight and the mechanicals are all in order, this being a driver, rather than a collector’s piece, and we’re rather fond of that here.

History File:

The original handbook, several folders worth of receipts and invoices, a good number being SLSHOP ones, underline that this Pagoda’s been looked after. It’s the other bits and pieces that come in the file that demonstrate previous owners have cared; there’s a workshop manual containing all the options codes, parts catalogues and more. Digging through the paperwork also highlights it’s lived in Germany, as well as Malta, this a car that’s lived a life then, but that’s the point, right…

SLSHOP Summary:

You could comfortably pay double for one of the other Pagodas we have in stock, pop it in your garage and be afraid to use it properly. Or you could buy this one and just enjoy it as it is, perhaps spending a bit of time, and not much money, between summers to tidy it up as you like. An honest, cared for Pagoda which oozes style with its dark blue and contrasting cream interior, this one won’t be with us long.

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?
