Why should you buy a Mercedes-Benz Pagoda…?

After the sales success of the 190SL Mercedes-Benz knew that the market for an every day roadster was buoyant. What the brand needed was a superbly designed, well-equipped car that offered top down thrills and fixed head coupe refinement in the same package. The Mercedes-Benz Pagoda was an instant hit. Between 1963 and 1971 the beautiful Paul Bracq design grew from 2.3, to 2.5 and finally 2.8 litre displacement with the 230SL, 250SL and 280SL.

A well cared for Pagoda is a fine piece of automotive artwork that can be used, enjoyed and adored. When correctly maintained a Pagoda offers a superb driving experience, the like of which isn’t usually found in cars of the same era. From the light touch of the thin steering wheel to the distinctive note from the tail pipes, the Pagoda exudes a charm, a wonderful car to drive with the roof up or down.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?

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.

SLSHOP Unique 2 & 3 year warranty
