See all the Images for this Car
The 230SL replaced both the 300SL and the 190SL in the Mercedes line-up for 1964. It was a landmark car; quieter and faster than the 190SL, and nearly as fast as, but vastly more comfortable than the 300SL. The European version of this early 113 body-style was delivered as it was first designed ...... lower stance, covered headlights, chromed interior features, square-weave carpets, molded door pockets, and clean flanks with no marker lights or bumper guards. About 2% of production got the optional ZF five-speed transmission, which gave an overdrive gear in fifth for more relaxed highway cruising.

This example was an Italian-delivery 230SL, one of the last made, equipped from new with the ZF five-speed, and with European-spec covered headlights and the original Becker Europa TR long-wave/short-wave FM radio.

In 1996, the car went to Bob Platz' Precision Autoworks for a full restoration, emerging in 2000 as a show-quality, accurately restored car. The engine, transmission, suspension, and major components were removed, rebuilt off the car, re-finished, and reinstalled. After restoration, some sorting out was done by Hatch & Sons, ensuring that the car is ready to tour as well as win trophies. The car has about 2,000 miles since restoration.

Trim work included a new black fabric top, completely new cognac leather, and German square-weave carpets with new correct 230SL rubber floor mats in the foot wells. The sunvisors, chromed mirror, and some other "jewelry" were replaced with new-old-stock parts from Mercedes. A perfect set of early beauty rings and hubcaps were located. Factory power steering was added.

The car is documented by a complete dossier of restoration records and factory data card.

This rare and beautiful Mercedes can be purchased for about half the cost of restoration.
