Car description

1963 Mercedes-Benz 230SL

The 230 SL was built to be racing inspired roadster that would show the world that Mercedes-Benz could build quality, beautiful looks with modern design. It was to be a car that would be in the reach of more enthusiasts than the Iconic Gullwing cars the preceded it. Mercedes build and design quality at a price that was within reach of many more drivers. It was a great combination.

This beautiful example is one of only 1,465 built in 1963. It is a European model with both soft and removable hard tops. The car was adapted to US specifications upon arrival, most notably the side markers. The “Pagoda” hard top gives two options for whatever season you are in. The removable hard top for the cold months and soft top for the warm “top down” times of the year.

This car has been well maintained and is a pleasure to drive. Mercedes was ahead of the curve with this car and gave it Bosch Fuel Injection, front disc brakes and independent front and rear suspension with coil springs. This car is in very nice condition and can be driven with confidence and enjoyed for many years to come.
