The slender lines of the W113 present with a gleaming navy hue, the paintwork having been sympathetically refreshed in years gone by. The bodywork is very presentable overall and remains in lovely driving condition with just a few signs of age.
The SL is complete with a dark blue folding soft-top, which remains in super condition. The car's plentiful brightwork is all in tact and is for the most part in very good order, free from any corrosion or dents.
The complementary blue interior remains in lovely condition. The seats present in very nice order and show almost no signs of age, the upholstery retaining a supple finish throughout. The door cards also present well. On close inspection there is no cracking to any of the wood trim, with only light patination to some of the switchgear. The head restraints are also present.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Pagoda is equipped with its factory 2.8-litre straight six. Period documentation and recent correspondence from Mercedes verifies this is the car's original engine. The SL is also present with its dealer-supplied service booklet. 23 entries show the car to have been meticulously maintained under previous ownership.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original wheel covers still retain their factory Medium Blue paint. The chrome finish has dulled over time but presents with a nice aged patina. They are free from any major curb marking and dings, and are shod in a set of Michelin tyres. A set of replacement tyres is present with the car. In the boot area you'll find the full size spare wheel, still protected in its original vinyl cover.
The SL was first registered in California on 3rd December 1969. It resided in the dry US state until late 1990 when it was exported to another temperate climate. It is now offered for sale for the first time in the UK and presents an excellent opportunity to own a lovely investment-grade Mercedes. The low mileage of 118,898 miles is believed genuine.
Present in the history file is a selection of original handbooks as supplied by Mercedes from new. The Mercedes warranty booklet is still in the original plastic sleeve along with the service booklet containing 23 entries. A scan of the factory data card is also included, which further verifies the car's build numbers and original specification.
