The very pretty and highly desirable Mercedes-Benz 250 SL was the successor to the popular 230 SL and was first introduced to the public at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show. The brief production run ended a year later in January 1968 and as a result of this short run, the 250 SL is the rarest of the W 113 (Pagoda) series cars. These lovely German stalwarts were offered with a four-speed automatic, a four-speed manual box or the ZF five-speed. Also, for the first time an optional limited slip differential was also available.
Supplied new to the UK in July 1967 this wonderful and rather rare right hand drive 250SL Pagoda has spent most of its life in the UK and Europe and in more recent times has been the subject of much restoration. Finished in a stylish shade of Tunis gold with a black hard and soft top the 250 comes with a sizeable history file detailing the restoration work. Included in the sale are bills for parts and labour totalling over £45,000, the current UK registration document, a Mercedes dating letter and a copy of the Mercedes data card, this is a fine example of the ever popular Mercedes Pagoda model.
