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 and 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 Mercedes Benz Pagoda is a desirable and hard to find right-hand drive 280sl with the automatic gearbox and has been in single ownership for past 17 years. When purchased by the current owner this example was repainted by Orbit coachworks in the current colour scheme (originally Silver Grey Metallic 180 G) with the accompanying hardtop painted black with matching hubcaps as was the practice with the W113 series.
Optional extras according to the data plate are power steering and floor shift automatic gearbox (code - 426) and version for GB (code - 622). This example runs and drives exceptionally well and is ready for any journey without excuse.
A bonus is the modern classic Becker head unit which has the appearance of a classic Becker Mexico radio but has modern internals and superior power output capable of powering modern speakers
