In March 1963 the 230SL made its debut at the Geneva Show, replacing the much acclaimed 190SL and 300SL models. Mercedes engineering integrity, together with elegance and practicality, made the Pagoda top SL cars among the most distinctive designs of the era, in closed form offering handsome proportions and coupé-like comfort and with the hard top removed offering lively open-top performance. It is largely thanks to these attributes that they remain so universally popular today and command such a large market following. Although sound upon first inspection, the body does shown signs of rust in the footwells and other areas where moisture can collect. The trim is still in place with the majority of carpets stored in the boot along with the radiator chromework, electrics and other miscellaneous spare parts.
