Has notches: ’67 Mercedes-Benz 230SL
We won’t pass on a potentially terrific 230SL no matter how many we run across. We were impressed by the presentation, description and documentation that accompany this elegant convertible. It has less than 50,000 miles and has 4 owners documented since it was delivered to the first owner from the Mercedes-Benz factory store on Park Avenue in Manhattan. By the way, that showroom was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It looks just beautiful in white and black with a spotless interior with all original materials intact. We like the optional Becker cassette player installed in the glove box. The Kinder Seat in the rear is pretty cool too. The seller states everything about the 230SL is original. Many Pagoda SLs lose a small detail on the leading inside edge of each headlamp. They are referred to as notches and most body shops mistakenly eliminate them. That isn’t cool. We do, however, question the small round lights installed all over the place. And hopefully, we could remove the chrome wheel well trim without damaging the paint. Certainly not part of the American specifications. Somewhat of a shame because we feel they spoil the purity of the elegant styling. Not a deal breaker for us. Click here for the eBay auction.
