1965 Mercedes-Benz W113 230 SL with Red Leather

Anthracite Grey (172) with Red Leather / 230 SL


Principal Facts:

Beautifully presented in a quintessentially sixties colour combination of Anthracite Metallic (172) with Red Leather.

With the 230SL now officially sixty years old, the time is ripe to join the community of less than 1,000 UK owners (should you reside here) and enjoy the lifestyle and investment returns of this iconic vehicle.

This particular vehicle was initially registered in 1965, approximately the middle of the production period before the 230SL went on to be replaced by the 230SL.

Condition Synopsis:

This 230SL is very well presented cosmetically because of a recent exterior re-finish in Anthracite Metallic (172). This was carried out to the highest of standards and our Detailing team can confirm that the paintwork has been carried out correctly.

Inside the car has been completely updated with new leather upholstery, carpets and dash topper. This was carried out by the UK’s specialist, D-Class who are renowned for their exceptional craftsmanship.


Since arriving at SLSHOP, we have carried extensive works to bring the vehicle up to our standards mechanically. We believe strongly that these vehicles should fill new owners with confidence to use their SL in any season and on any day of the week, which is why we have carried out such an extensive amount of work. Some of this work is detailed below:

  • Replace front subframe bushes
  • Comprehensive gearbox overhaul including new sump pan and gasket, new gearbox modulator and more
  • Replacement starter motor
  • Engine Setup - emissions and injectors for reliable hot & cold starting
  • Correctly refit rear light gaskets
  • Remove and correctly refit all propshaft bolts

The list of works carried out to bring this car up to usable and enjoyable standard equates to over £10,000 in parts and labour.

All invoices and parts lists can be found in the folder accompanying the vehicle.

This a 230SL that the new owner can confidently enjoy with thanks to the investment mde by the previous owner(s).

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?
