19 Mercedes-Benz 230/250/280SL

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

The ‘Pagoda’ SL’s ap­peal goes well be­yond the clas­sic fra­ter­nity to the

new money fil­ter­ing into the scene. As a ‘must-have’ ac­ces­sory for the metropoli­tan hip­ster, it makes sense, but long-term Pagoda lovers

ap­pre­ci­ated their re­li­a­bil­ity, stur­di­ness and build qual­ity long be­fore many of those want­ing one to­day were born. Prices spi­ralled up­wards dra­mat­i­cally in 2014, with deal­ers dish­ing out strong money be­fore adding their own mark-up, so for those on a bud­get it’s a case of sav­ing up more or buy­ing one in not quite so good or­der. Spares are widely avail­able but can be eye-wa­ter­ingly ex­pen­sive.
