1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagode For Sale

1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagode



Matching the number of engine and body, the gearbox has been replaced.



The engine was renovated for less than 10,000 km ago and the transmission was repaired in July 2017. Originally rust was in the trunk and small rust holes in the outer and inner fender, that has been repaired by a professional plate-blacksmith. Original sound insulation preserved in the bottom as evidence of how little rust over the years. Receipts from the last 10 years available. So much of the original is preserved as possible.



Extra soft top and various spare parts are included in the sale.

History of the Mercedes-Benz W 113:

The Mercedes-Benz W 113 is a two-seat roadster/coupé, introduced at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show, and produced from 1963 through 1971. It replaced both the legendary 300 SL (W 198) and the 190 SL (W 121 BII). Of the 48,912 W 113 SLs produced, 19,440 were sold in the US.

The W 113 SL was developed under the auspices of Mercedes-Benz Technical Director Fritz Nallinger, Chief Engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut and Head of Styling Friedrich Geiger. The lead designers were Paul Bracq and Béla Barényi, who created its distinctive, patented,] slightly concave hardtop, which inspired the "Pagoda" nickname.



All models were equipped with an inline-six-cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection. The bonnet, trunk lid, door skins and tonneau cover were made of aluminum to reduce weight. The comparatively short and wide chassis, combined with an excellent suspension, powerful brakes and radial tires gave the W 113 superb handling for its time. The styling of the front, with its characteristic upright Bosch "fishbowl" headlights and simple chrome grille, dominated by the large three-pointed star in the nose panel, paid homage to the then already legendary 300 SL roadster.



A brief chronology of the most notable changes made to the 280SL:

12/1967: One piece wheel-covers (like W 108/W 109 sedans).

10/1968: US models with sealed beam headlights without fog lights.

02/1969: New tail lights with amber turn signals.

05/1969: ZF 5-speed manual transmission discontinued as listed option and available only on special request.

07/1969: US models with headlight assembly with full amber lower section, illuminated side markers, transistorized ignition, and improved emission control.

08/1969: Heated rear window for hardtop, hazard lights for all models, single master key for all locks.

04/1970: Bosch Lichteinheit headlights optionally with halogen main beam (distinguished by "flat" instead of "bubble" lens).

08/1970: Fuchs alloy wheels available as a factory-fitted option.

11/1970: Opaque beige plastic coolant expansion tank (instead of satin-black paint over brass). New door locks: cylinder can be depressed while door is locked.
