1964 Mercedes-Benz W113 230 SL
Perfect roadster from the sixties
Car body is in excellent condition, however the car was not used much for years, so some repairs were needed. Most notable was the power-assisted steering, which leaked oil and needed a refitting.
Most beautiful when driven open. There are few roadsters from the sixties that match the looks of a pagoda when driven open.
This car is all about space and light, I know no other car that gives you such a spacious feeling inside.
The car can be easily driven in today's traffic (perfect power assisted steering, excellent automatic transmission) however engine develops power above 4k rpm only so needs some adjustments in driving habits. The sound of the engine compensates more than enough when driven hard.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
