The Mercedes Benz 230SL was first introduced at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show. Daimler-Benz launched a new sports car to replace the two outgoing roadsters: the legendary 300SL and the popular 190SL. While stylistically similar, their respective design concepts were vastly different, so it proved to be quite a challenge to create a new common denominator. The new SL was a synthesis of the two previous models which set new standards in driving dynamics and safety. The new SL, known internally as series W113 was the first sports car ever with a rigid passenger safety cell along with front and rear crumple zones. The body design was characterized by its removable, concave shaped hardtop, which also gave it the nickname “Pagoda”

Motorcartrader.com is thrilled to offer this stunning 1965 Mercedes 230SL Convertible. We purchased this great car from a gentleman who owned this car for about 20 years. As we understand, he was the third owner of this Pagoda. Overall, a very nice driver to be enjoyed. Some highlights on this great car:

    This is an excellent higher end, driver quality car. It is not a “trailer queen, but it needs nothing to be driven and enjoyed. These Mercedes 230SLs are excellent investments, as they have been appreciating. The Mercedes 280SL has very much taken off in value after being undervalued for so long. These Mercedes 230SLs are great cars and still available for reasonable prices as this one is and are certain to appreciate as the 280SLs have.
