Car Description

 


Things to know about this Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda


No matter how you look at it: A Pagoda that has been delivered in Germany and has been driven exclusively here in Europe for 50 years, usually takes significant damage caused by the weather effects in our latitudes and the salt on our roads. Thus, for an upcoming restoration many parts have to be replaced and rather substantial welding work has to be done. We prefer spending more money for a rust-free basic vehicle, than filleting the whole car and then recomposing it by using spare parts. However, nearly rust-free Pagodas, such as this one, are probably only available in the United States. After the removal of paint, we have completely rebuilt this Pagoda just as it was on the original delivery date – all that in accordance with the data card at hand. In that process the vehicle is converted to European standard: the speedometer shows kilometers instead of miles, two-piece headlights are replaced by one-piece headlights, the side turn indicators are removed, etc. New parts are exclusively ordered from Mercedes-Classic. We do not use re-manufactured, but solely original parts. We take the time that is necessary to give this automobile a rebirth and bring it back to its original state from 1969. A photo documentation is at hand. The color combination of this Mercedes-Benz Pagoda 280SL conforms to the state as when delivered from the factory in 1969. The numbers of chassis, motor, transmission are matching the data card. TÜV-, H- and Classic Data-certifications are available! The very rare color „Arabian Grey“in original configuration makes this Pagoda rather special! This Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda was 100% restored in Germany to the highest standards.

The history of the Mercedes-Benz SL “Pagoda”
On occasion of the 1963 Geneva Motor Show, Daimler-Benz introduced the Mercedes-Benz 230 SL with 150PS / 110kW in 3 different models: An open roadster with an easy-to-handle soft-top, the popular convertible-version with a hardtop and finally a hardtop-coupe that lacked a soft-top (compartment), although it had additional storage space for luggage. That version could also be driven open-top by removing the hardtop. As an optional equipment there was a transverse rear seat. Later the so-called "California- Coupé" with a fold-down rear bench seat instead of a soft-top compartment was introduced. In addition to the 4-speed manual transmission, a 4-speed automatic transmission could be ordered for the first time in the SL-history. Since May 1966 a ZF 5-speed transmission has been made available against an extra charge. The slightly concave hardtop inspired the nickname "Pagoda". In February 1967 Mercedes-Benz introduced the 250SL. The main changes concerned the motor and the brake system. The nominal maximum power remained unchanged but capacity and torque improved: + 190 cc /+20 Nm. This had a positive effect on the smoothness. After 5.196 units of the 250 SL had been produced, Mercedes-Benz introduced the 280 SL in 1968: 170PS / 125kW, 240 Nm. 23.885 Pagodas with the 2.8 liter motor have been built and one of them presents itself here, restored elaborately, with competence and very detailed in accordance with the original data card, in the condition of a new car and with a CLASSIC DATA CERTIFICATE, state 1!
