Highlights of this example:

Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963 and remaining in production until 1971, the Mercedes W113 “Pagoda” got the nickname from the slightly concave hardtop designed by Paul Bracq. The 280 SL’s 6-cylinder 2.8-liter engine develops an impressive 170 BHP and was paired to either a 4-speed automatic or the manual gearbox with 4 or five forward gears.

The Pagoda’s timeless elegant design and exceptional ease of use make it popular amongst both car collectors and those entering the collector car world. In addition, these models are well supported by Mercedes Benz and model specialists with a vast network of suppliers

This Example:

We at Crossley & Webb have sold some of the best Mercedes Benz Pagodas over the past 12 months but none of them have ticked all the boxes. If you are looking for a concours restored example then this example is not for you. However, if you value a car that has been preserved by limited ownership (2 owners from new) over its 53 year lifespan still with its original components and with an extensive record of maintenance and original book set validating why it drives so well ……..then this car is for you.

For us, it ticks all the boxes

This Mercedes Benz Pagoda is a desirable and hard to find right-hand drive 280sl with the automatic gearbox built and registered in 1970 and has been in single ownership for the past 42 years.

The best Pagoda’s have to tick several boxes and for Crossley & Webb these are:

  • Right hand drive
  • 280sl cars
  • Automatic gearbox
  • Numbers matching verified by factory issued data card
  • Original paint colour as verified by factory issued data card
  • Preserved examples in very good condition versus restored examples
  • Excellent technical condition
  • Extensive maintenance history

This example ticks all these boxes and is considered by us as one of the best examples to be offered for sale by us to date.
