1967 Mercedes- Benz 250SL "Pagoda" - SOLD -

I am pleased to offer this specialist restored 1967 Mercedes-Benz 250SL. The vehicle includes both tops and tools, is the rarest of the W113 class "Pagoda" Mercedes and wears a highly sought-after color scheme of DB717 Papyrus White over brilliant red leather.




Mercedes-Benz embarked on a new single-platform policy for its sports cars with the 2.3 litre 230SL, which was internally designated “W113” and debuted in Geneva in 1963. Body lines were penned by Paul Bracq, and Bela Barényi engineered a host of industry-leading, built-in safety features. With form following function, the new SL’s optional hardtop offered high strength and its unique shape inspired the new car’s “Pagoda” nickname. Available for purchase from the summer of 1963, the 230SL was succeeded by the 2.5L 250SL. Debuted at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show, the 250SL also brought improved seat belts, a collapsible steering column and new 4-wheel disc brakes. Briefly produced from November/December 1966 to January 1968, the 250SL is the rarest of Mercedes-Benz’s W113 series with 5,196 built. Delivering greater horsepower output and torque, the 250SL retained the stiffer suspension and sporty, responsive feel of the 230SL, making the 250SL ideal for enthusiastic drivers. 


All W113 models were equipped with an inline-six cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection. The bonnet, boot lid, door skins and tonneau cover were made of aluminum to reduce weight. The comparatively short and wide chassis, combined with an excellent suspension, powerful brakes and radial tires gave the W 113 superb handling for its time. The styling of the front, with its characteristic upright Bosch "fishbowl" headlights and simple chrome grille, dominated by the large three-pointed star in the nose panel, paid homage to the 300 SL roadster.


Wheelbase 2,400 mm (94.5 in)

Length 4,335 mm (170.7 in)

Width 1,760 mm (69.3 in)

Height 1,305 mm (51.4 in)

Curb weight 1,300 kg (2,866 lb)




A New York-based German marque specialist acquired this SL in 2002. Over a ten-year period, he conducted a comprehensive restoration including bare metal respray, new interior and carpeting, new cloth convertible top, new body chrome, replacement suspension components and a complete overhaul to the original engine. All parts were imported from Germany. At the current client owner's request, the vehicle benefits from an expertly installed A/C unit totaling $8,000.


This coveted SL is best described as a top-level driver capable of winning regional events. It needs nothing other than a few hundred break-in miles of enjoyable top-down motoring!
