The Mercedes W113 ‘Pagoda’ was always glamorous and expensive (twice as much as a 4.2 E-type in period), with John Lennon and Charlton Heston among star owners in period. John Travolta, David Coulthard, Jason Orange and Kate Moss have added more recent flair to the model.

This Car comes in an extremely attractive Papyrus White paint work and perfectly complimenting red leather seats and matching red carpet as well as the red soft top. This collector owned Pagoda also comes with side-facing ‘jump seat’ making it a rare three-seater automobile. The hard top that comes with the car is a perfect solution for the British winter months. The dashboard full of chrome is fitted with period correct Blaupunkt radio receiver. In terms of modern equipment, the car has been fitted with the latest technology alarm system with immobiliser and central locking for the peace of mind.

Originally constructed for the European market in 1966 in left hand drive configuration with desirable manual transmission.

Imported to the UK in late 2013 and registered in 2014 the Pagoda undergone a full restoration which to this day results in a car that is enjoyed with no worries for any potential major restoration costs. Mechanically the car has benefitted from a service and a clutch replacement.

This is an extremely well-presented example with only two previous UK owners and matching numbers. This Pagoda is a fantastic opportunity for the next custodian to acquire and enjoy an impeccable iconic automobile.

A truly fantastic example of this iconic model!
