For Sale: 1967 Mercedes-Benz 230SL in Holland, Michigan


Vehicle Description

This impressive 230SL is a beautiful example of a car that had big shoes to fill and did so with elegance and charming looks. The interior is very nice after receiving new upholstery as part of the restoration process. The beautiful dashboard is in great shape with clean gauges, a working Becker Radio, seats that are in very good shape, lap belts, wood "center cubby", and wood trim on top of dashboard which is in good condition. The odometer shows 62,340 miles. This car runs and drives great; this 230 is very comfortable to drive, with a smooth shifting transmission and a responsive 2.3L engine. This car goes down the road so nicely that one may forget that they are driving a car that is 48 years old. The paint and body are in very good condition; all the lenses and lights are in good condition, although there is slight blemishing on the chrome tail-light surrounds and chrome trim at the rear of the vehicle. This 230SL comes with the iconic "Pagoda Top" hardtop, which when installed gives this desirable Benz an elegant silhouette.
