The Appeal

Affectionately known as the 'Pagoda' due to its distinctive hardtop design, the Mercedes-Benz W113 SL is one of the most stylish and well-engineered roadsters of all time. 
Introduced in 1963, it was a pioneer in the way it looked, drove and even in safety - regarded as the first open sports car with a rigid passenger cell or “safety body”. 
This 1964 230 SL was restored some time ago by its enthusiast owner and is in good overall condition both technically and aesthetically. There's also room for a new owner to refine it further as the white paintwork and chrome could use some attention although the interior still looks lovely. This SL is clearly a very solid basis for further improvement.
