IMPROVE THE WAY MY HERITAGE MERCEDES DRIVES (1950S & 1960S)
Old school Mercedes. Some just about run and drive with the usual hiccups – often things owners just put down to the car being old and quirky… Others though, with specialist services documented in their history file will run and perform as good, if not better than new. This is the upside potential of your old school Mercedes model.
Over the years we have restored and maintained an array of saloons, coupes and convertibles from the fifties and sixties, learning along the way how to make each unique model perform at its optimum level. Our team are on hand to help make your old-school Mercedes dependable and enjoyable.
SYMPTOMS YOU MAY BE EXPERIENCING:
The following are just a snapshot of the issues you may be experiencing:
- Running too hot or too cold
- Not reaching temperature
- Cold starting issues
- Misfiring or lacking power
- Stubborn steering or questionable suspension
Passing of time and absence of understanding can cause perennial issues. Budget repairs and/or inexperienced technicians will affect how your model performs and behaves; ultimately will ruin the enjoyment of owning the vehicle.
Our team are sensitive to these models and understand how these complex injection and fuel systems, as well as what faded components might be causing poor steering or handling. It is this sensitivity that allows us to expertly craft a path to improving the way your Heritage Mercedes model drives.
TAKING IT FURTHER:
Our in-house SportLine department have modified and improved an array of classic Mercedes models for competitive sport. They can work with you to give your classic Mercedes a more modern appeal, improving the suspension and handling, as well as the performance of your engine. This is a bespoke service suited to people who want something truly unique.

Pagoda & 60’s Shop Tour
In the beginning, R107 customers started bringing their 1960s cars to SLSHOP. Following this, we’ve grown into a dedicated workshop specifically for cars of this era. Here, you’ll find a wide variety of Pagodas. Of those, some are here for final touches, some for initial assessment, and everything in between. After all, every Pagoda’s needs are different. And it’s not just SLs in this workshop, either… In addition, we regularly see earlier SLs and all manner of saloons, coupes, and convertibles from this glorious era of style and statement.
So step back in time and browse our 1960s workshop here. Because who doesn’t love eyeing beautiful old cars!
