The car runs and drives perfectly and has been professionally maintained during Jack's ownership. Jack used it sparingly on sunny summer days. This car has never been left out side overnight let alone driven in inclement weather. The car is completely rust free and has never been in any altercations or accidents. The car has had a respray at some point. the dash is original and more of a grey blue. while the exterior is more of a silver blue. otherwise the car appears original. It comes with all it' s original tools and manuals. The car starts right up. runs smoothly and is ready for the road! Finished in a rare color combination. and fitted with the rare factory A/C and mother in law seat. this is a unique opportunity to acquire a nice solid Pagoda with a known history. There are a few very minor flaws on the car which are quite easily addressed. it will clean up very nicely. We have many more photographs of this car. please click on any image to be taken to our full-size image list! The Mercedes-Benz W 113 automobiles were produced from 1963 through 1971. They were sold as the "pagoda roof" SL Class. The W 113 replaced the W 198 SL-Class in 1963 and was replaced by the R107 SL-Class in 1972. All models boast an inline six-cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection using a mechanical pump system adapted from the diesel motors. All are rear-wheel drive. but are also equipped with independent rear suspension. a feature that greatly improved road handling. Most of these early SLs were sold with both the removable hard top and a soft top in the so-called "Coupe/Roadster" configuration. but there was also a "California Coupe" version available that came with the removable hardtop but no soft top. In these models. the soft top well (between the passenger compartment and trunk) is removed. and a drop-down bench seat is installed in its place. The rear seat is small and not very useful. so these 2+2 models are rare but not especially sought after today. While the SLs are relatively heavy compared to other similar roadsters. weight was reduced in part by the use of aluminum panels for the trunk lid. front hood. tonneau cover and door skins. Production began in 1963 with the 2. 3 liter 230-SL. These models were commonly 4-speed manual transmission cars. but a 4-speed automatic transmission was also available and popular for U. S. market cars. The 230-SL sported front disc / rear drum power-assisted brakes. They quickly gained popularity in the U. S. market. and this eventually led to more and more cars being built with automatic transmissions. 19. 31 copies of the 230-SL were built. of which 11. 26 cars were exported.
