For a human being, 6 years is a good amount of time, ut to an automobile it’s an eternity! The ravages of time aren’t just from nature. Tastes change, rends die, nd once-envied designs have a way of looking absurd. Once in a while though, n automobile endures despite all this, nd ultimately, ecomes a classic! That car is Mercedes 280SL W113 Pagoda.
Owning a Mercedes SL gives a person a real driving enjoyment and pride of ownership. When these cars were first manufactured, ercedes-Benz adhered to construction methods that resulted in a standard that was the envy of the automotive industry. Every Mercedes-Benz model shared a build quality second to none.
This famous SL found place in the hearts of many people including some famous Guys & Gals like John Travolta, harlton Heston, ohn Lennon, ate Moss, nd Sophia Loren, span>just to name a few!!!
Today, his beauty is 46 years old, nd it looks amazing and charming, ike the first day it left the factory!
ABOUT THE CAR:
Up for auction is 1970 Mercedes Benz 280SL “Pagoda” (VIN# 113.044.12-015978). In 1970 there was only 7,935 units produced, nd this beauty is one of them!! February of 1971 was an end of production era for famous W113 bodystyle when Mercedes switched to larger V8 powered R107 SL, aking 1970-71 models highly desirable to collectors and enthusiasts!!!! Add the rare and highly desirable color combination of Dark Tobacco Brown over Parchment interior, rigiKing Airconditioning, nd there is just not a lot of Pagoda’s like this one on the road!
This Mercedes was sitting in Air Conditioned storage since 2003 when its owner parked it due to his serious health issues. He purchased this car from its second owner in 1997 when this beauty received its first high quality repaint to its Original and Highly Desirable Dark Tobacco Brown (Paint Code # 423 tabakbraun dunkel).. Paint still has beautiful shine and luster, ith some minimal imperfections and scratches that don’t take away from its overall beauty!
According to his daughter, ts previous owner was in the midst of engine rebuilt, ut his health condition stopped him from proceeding further. Head appears to have been rebuilt, nd everything in the engine compartment is neatly marked and tagged as where every wire and hose needs to go. Radiator, an, lternator, nd some miscellaneous parts are out of the engine compartment and included with the car. Car is not running, ut it does roll, rakes, nd steers with ease!
Body and undercarriage are very straight, olid and original!! All gaps are proper, nd all doors, ood and trunk are opening and closing as they should!! This is a very solid and most importantly UNMOLESTED example of W113 Pagoda!! Because of its unibody construction there are some “Frankenstein” Pagoda’s out there, nd finding one to be free of horrors and torture from its previous owners and incompetent body shops is getting harder and harder by the minute!!!!
All original factory weld dots along front fenders are still present showing the originality of this car and the fact that car was never involved in the front end collision. It was never chopped and cut like a lot of its unfortunate siblings! Inner fenders are also all solid and untouched, s well as its original and intact front and rear shock towers!
Chassis plate (Karosserie) number, ood, ard-top, nd soft-top lid or “horse shoe” are all having a matching number “809” (please see pictures!!), hich is another evidence of the originality of this Mercedes.
Original VIN Number Stamping is also present on its passenger side frame rail – another rare and desirable “Item” on the long list of Original Pagoda Traits and requirements if you wish to own best of the best!!!
AnotherVERY RAREsign of originality that can be found on onlyHANDFULof original and unmolested W113’s is factory bare metal ground spot under the coolant expansion tank, eaning that engine bay was NEVER painted or touched – Desirable trait of Concourse examples, r original unmolested survivors!!
Original half-moons in the back of the car are present as well! This means car was never involved in any rear end collision nor had any body work done in that area! Trunk area is also ALL original, olid, howing its factory welding dots across its entire trunk floor! (Please see Pictures!!)
All the important and sought after original features are present on this car!!! Like they say “Originality is king when it comes to classic cars”!! Not only does finding a 40ish year old car that has not been altered by numerous past owners add to your enjoyment of the car; the more original features that you can substantiate the better when it comes time to sell your treasure!!!
Experienced car collectors and investors have learned that a solid, ound, riginal body is the most important aspect of any vintage car! Mechanical rebuilds are straight forward and not costly compared to trying to correct a previously crashed or rusted car. One cannot throw enough money at a car with a bad body to make it right or equal to a car with a great original structure like on this beauty!! It is really hard and expensive and sometimes impossible to make a Concourse restoration on the molested example with glued and cut front or rear fenders, nd riveted floor boards made out of sheet metal panels purchased from your local Home Depot!!!
This Pagoda comes with both Hard and Soft Top. Hard top is in excellent condition, ll original glass is nice and intact as well as its original headliner which is rips and tears free! Original wood around the rear window is still present and in great shape as well. Dark Brown Soft top is in excellent condition, ew looking and rips and tears free. Vinyl rear window is nice and crystal clear!
Rare and highly desirable Parchment Interior is in beautiful condition!! It is all there down to its Kienzle clock, nd Original Becker Europa Radio!! Seats are in excellent condition – very supportive and comfortable. Contrasting Dark Brown Original carpets are in great shape, s well as the original wood on the dash which is not warped or cracked!
For those hot days when you want to take it for a drive with the top down, his beauty is equipped with rare “FrigiKing” Air Condition, nother rare and desirable option!
Just take a look at the pictures, nd you will get an idea about the condition of this car, ow nicely it is kept, nd how beautiful it is!
This is a very nicely kept and complete Pagoda, hat has been loved its whole life, t was never abused, nd it truly shows!! Every used SL has been created equal, ut there are some that have been loved just a little bit more!!!! This car is one of those SL’s!!
This beauty comes complete with its Tool set, riginal Jack, riginal steel wheel chock, wner’s manual, nd original spare tire!!
Rare Dark Tobacco Brown, ver Parchment interior color combination makes this SL look stunning and a real eye catcher! Just look at the pictures and you will see the potential this car has!!!
This Pagoda in running condition is easily in $85,000-$100,000 range with an amazing potential to be $175,000 + Concourse example if you choose to do so!!!
With this particular SL not only you will have a great toy, ut the value of this car is increasing from day to day, aking it a wonderful investment! This is great opportunity to acquire a beautiful and unmolested Pagoda at a fraction of the price!
Our reserve is set more than reasonable for a vehicle in this original condition, nd in case this car doesn’t find its lucky buyer, e will go ahead, et it running, nd then it price will be close to the $85,000-$100,000 range!
