1968 MERCEDES-BENZ 280SL PAGODA W113+2019 ZF 5SPEED ZF S5-20 For SaleREBORN! The brand new ZF 5-speed gearbox ZF S 5-20 for this MERCEDES-BENZ PAGODA!
At the beginning of 2016, there was a rumor in the pagoda scene: "ZF TRADITION" Friedrichshafen / Germany (part of ZF Group) will produce the historic ZF S 5-20 (5-speed) gearbox again. As the last edition, which is now sold out and delivered since this month. The ZF S 5-20 5-speed transmission was offered from August 1965 as a purchase option in the official price list of Mercedes-Benz from August 1965 and was available until the end of production (1971). However, the gearbox differs from the 70s version in that it is manufactured by ZF using the latest materials and manufacturing methods of today. The gearbox will be installed directly at "ZF TRADITION" in Fridrichshafen at the beginning of May and makes this Pagoda a unique piece with the very rare color combination 040-black with red leather delivered from the factory. In addition to the value stability, the 5-speed gearbox guarantees pure driving pleasure. The overhauled original gearbox is of course included!

Things to know about this Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda
In the 60's and 70, there was limited demand for the pagodes with the black paint finish. Therefore, Black pagodes are particularly rare and in high demand today. This specimen is black as delivered from the factory, rather than being merely repainted, and has been restored exactly according to its data card. We have continuously documented the restauration with photos and videos. All new parts have been ordered exclusively through Mercedes-Benz-Classic and we were responsible for its entire restoration in Germany. The issued chassis, motor, transmission and the built in aluminum components match the data card.

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!
