The pagoda roof Mercedes-Benz SL of the Sixties is one of collectors' most sought after automobiles. Combining Mercedes-Benz's superb engineering and build quality with lightweight, compact two-seat bodywork and luxurious interior, these are emblematic of Mercedes-Benz's appreciation of its clients' desire for style, performance and handling. Introduced as the 230SL in 1963, the single overhead camshaft Bosch mechanical fuel injection engine was enlarged in late 1966 to 2,496cc and 170 brake horsepower. This 1968 Mercedes-Benz 250SL has been comprehensively restored with gorgeous paint, excellent chrome and very nice interior. Finished in DB291 Dark Green with tan upholstery and matching correct carpets, it comes with both a tan cloth soft top and the distinctive pagoda hardtop, automatic transmission and Becker Europa radio. The wheels have hubcaps, trim rings and radial whitewall tires. The restoration is fully documented and the 250SL presents extremely well throughout. Significantly, it is equipped with Frigiking air conditioning which makes it particularly versatile in all seasons. It will be a delight to drive and is even more exclusive today than it was when built 45 years ago.
