In March 1963 the new generation of SL sports cars was launched with the debut of the 230 SL at the Geneva Show. This revolutionary new model replaced the then ageing 190 and 300SL models. Mercedes engineering, together with elegance and practicality, made the pagoda top SL one of the most distinctive designs of its era. As today, Mercedes-Benz motorcars were never cheap, but superb build quality and sophisticated styling made the 230SL an extremely popular sports car among motoring enthusiasts.

The 1964 238 SL offered here comes dressed in every popular Red exterior paint with black hard top over black interior with black convertible Haartz cloth convertible top. The car is powered by its rock solid Mercedes Benz inline 6 cylinder engine fed by Mercedes' proven fuel injection system. The car comes equipped with the desirable 4 speed manual transmission and independent rear end. The red exterior paint is newer and excellent all over, bumpers and bright-work remain very nice. The interior is very tidy and features correct square weave carpeting, the seats dash and door panels have all been restored as well as the gauges. The steering wheel and horn ring remains a lovely focal point of the interior and the door pockets remain intact and useful. Under this hood, the engine bay remains very complete and it is very evident that a recent tune up service including new plugs, wires and distributer has been performed. The soft top remains in excellent over all condition and the car has had the benefit of having an upgrades sound system installed.

The Mercedes SL Series remain among the finest sports cars ever designed, and the Pagoda series of the 1960's remain as one of the hottest collector sports cars on the planet with examples fetching into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. The car offered here is a wonderful, driver quality example that is a blast to drive, has good mechanicals and outstanding curb appeal. If you are looking for a fully documented, top shelf example with high provenance, then this car is not for you. If you are looking for an exquisite driver that reliable mechanicals, a great core structure and wonderful cosmetics at an entry level price, than this car is a must consideration. A Bargain at the price offered here.
