Beschreibung

The legendary Pagoda is currently one of the most valuable and desirable classics
made by Mercedes-Benz. It was launched in 1963 as a successor to the
190SL and an extension of a line of elegant German roadsters. During the
design phase, engineers from Stuttgart borrowed a number of solutions from
its big brother, the W111. Pagodas, codenamed W113, became true style icons.
Many of these cars were driven by famous people, such as artists, actors and
aristocrats. Overall a total of 70 thousand examples were made, all of which
are highly appreciated by collectors.
The Pagoda listed for sale was brought to Poland in 2015. According to the documents
attached to the car, its mileage is fairly low at 12 489 miles. However,
the car did require some restoration work. Its then-owner took the challenge
and brought the Mercedes back to its former glory. After that, the car was sold
to a new owner, who set about improving it further. Paintwork was refreshed
and protected appropriately. On top of that, fuel injection was readjusted. On
the inside, original seat upholstery is still preserved, adding to the authenticity
of the car. Folding roof is in a very good condition. Last year, the car underwent
a thorough mechanical inspection and had all its minor foibles removed.
Currently the car looks tremendous and is a perfect example of a well maintained
classic. Chrome elements, condition of the bodywork and the interior are
strong points of the listed example. The car also comes with a hardtop.
The Mercedes W113 is a car that most seasoned classic car enthusiasts lust
after. Quite often it’s the star of many collections, mostly because of its timeless
charm. However, it’s also worth noting that the car is very comfortable and
perfectly suited for long journeys. Ardor Auctions’ offer is a reasonably priced
Pagoda that’s ready to drive and will be a treat even for those who aren’t necessarily
fans of the German brand.
