1967 Mercedes 250SL—Excellent and Rare
1967 Mercedes 250SL—The “Pagoda” Series
This 250SL has only been owned by 2 families since new and is now available for the first time in 40+- years. It has been meticulously cared for and has records dating back to its original purchase from a California dealer. The 250SL was the second version of the W 113 SL series and featured a number of improvements over the earlier version. It is also very collectible since of the 48,912 SLs made in that series (1963-1971) fewer than 5,200 were 250SLs.

A Wonderful Example!
- Paint and Chrome
This SL’s paint was redone in its original Ivory a number of years ago and still looks fresh. It has a deep shine and strong color.
The chrome is in very good condition and nicely compliments the paint.
The pagoda hard top’s paint (same Ivory as body) is in very nice condition, as is the headliner. The convertible top is in good condition.
The seat upholstery is red, contrasting nicely with the Ivory exterior and in very good condition. The carpeting is red.
The wood trim on the interior is in good condition as is the red dash covering.
The instrument cluster and the rest of the interior looks very nice.
The car’s 2.5 liter fuel-injected engine starts and runs nicely. It has plenty of power to pull this car along briskly at modern highway speeds.
The transmission is 4-speed manual.
- Comfort and Safety Systems
This Mercedes is truly a 4-season car, equally comfortable with the convertible top down or the pagoda hardtop installed. This 250SL also has Kuhlmeister air conditioning, but it will need servicing.
It is also a car where all the safety features work—horn, lights, wipers, turn signals, even the clock works. The mark of a great Mercedes!
These 250 SLs were equipped with power-assisted steering and power disc brakes.
A Very Nice Example of one of Mercedes Most Sought-after Sports Cars
Finding a largely original example of the limited production 250 SL series is a rare event. These cars are highly in demand and therefore represent not just a great driving experience but a sound investment as well. And if there was ever a sports car that made you feel as if you are driving on the Autobahn, this 250 SL is it! And of all the sports cars with removable hardtops, there is no—repeat, no—car that we know of with greater visibility—or style—when its signature pagoda hardtop is installed.
