This completely restored Pagoda was newly reassembled in Germany between 2016 and 2018 and stands ready for inspection in Düsseldorf at any time of your convenience. Every part has - if possible - been rebuit and reused, and the engine has been worked over. The axles, the brakes and the steering system as well as all the interior electronics, aside from a few new parts,have been overhauled. Several invoices as well as photographs of the restoration process are available. The vehicle is still registered and runs sensationally. The Pagoda was issued to the USA in 1965 and returned to German soil in 2014

If there’s one vehicle well-known for its timeless appearance, it’s the Pagoda, which is usually appreciated by both young and old enthusiasts and can easily keep up with modern traffic. This model will surely continue to be a welcome contemporary on German roads. For those of us conscious of road safety, it is interesting to note that the basis of the Pagoda uses the undercarriage of the so-called “tail fin”, making it the first limousine in the world with a designated safety car body. Thus, this 230 SL features a stiff passenger cell with crumple zones in the form of easily malleable front and rear segments, which in case of an emergency absorb the impact’s energy and protect the passenger. All in all, this Pagoda is an easily manageable and safe to drive convertible, which thanks to newly assembled varnish and the “havana brown” interior can boast with a quite classy appearance. The tried-and-tested engines immediately start up even after long standing periods and the 150 HP power the convertible with playful ease. If you are used to vehicles from more recent production periods, you may be surprised at how powerful and persistent this specimen feels to drive. The feel is almost incomparable with that of other contemporary convertibles.
