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 50 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.
