Description

Two-door luxury roadster/coupé produced by Mercedes in 1968 with hardtop.
Complete restoration to highest standards to its original exterior color.
It has now been upgraded to European specifications with European headlights, tail lights, odometer and tachometer. It retains original with overhauled engine and front and rear suspension. The distinctive, slightly concave hardtop, gave inspiration to the “Pagoda” nickname. The bonnet, trunk lid, door skins and tonneau cover were made of aluminum to reduce weight. The comparatively short and wide chassis, combined with an excellent suspension, powerful brakes and radial tires gave the W113 superb handling for its time. All invoices and photos present. No costs saved.
A real eye catcher and the ideal car to join rallies with or ay other classic car event!
