Yup, we love classic cars. But, of course, we do. If you have any love for automobiles, you have to appreciate the classics. Today we get a look at a sleek, stylish design from 1965 that is on the market. This 1965 Mercedes-Benz 230SL Pagoda Coupe might not be a 300SL, but it’s something special in its own right. Designed by Paul Bracq, the vehicle would eventually become an icon and would firmly place Mercedes-Benz in the US market.
The vehicle included a solid chassis, powerful brakes, and a fuel-injected inline-six that delivered impressive performance for the era. The car was a popular option for celebrities and stars while representing innovative automotive safety elements. The 230SL was the first car to feature a rigid passenger compartment with designated crumple zones. This particular model features a white exterior with a black interior, boasting a perfect body and recently recovered interior. The original hardtop covers a working soft top, while the motor was recently refreshed.
