1968 Mercedes Benz 250sl

Completed in 2016, Classic Era Motors restored this beautiful MB 250sl in its original Papyrus White over dark blue MB-Tex interior. The original 2.5 liter mechanically injected inline-six is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Glasurit paint was applied to show level standards, while the interior and both tops were renewed and all trim adorning the body was either refurbished or replaced with Mercedes-Benz OEM chrome. New Phoenix whitewall tires and a rebuilt braking system had the car ready for the road, and the engine was serviced and fit with a rebuilt injection pump. It was offered with an original tool kit, Pagoda hardtop, Mercedes data card, and a clean Pennsylvania title.


We acquired this solid W113 series SL  in 2016 from its previous long term owner in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. We performed the restoration, keeping the car in its original specification as indicated by the data card.  The body was brought down to bare metal and was free of any major corrosion or damage.  The Original headlight swages and fender spot welds were all present, and we applied two-stage Glasurit finish in the original Papyrus White color.  A replacement soft top was sourced from World Upholstery in the appropriate shade of blue, while the grill, headlight bezels, and taillight surrounds were purchased new from Mercedes.


The MB-Tex interior was sourced from World Upholstery in the original Dark Blue (115) and the floor received a new square weave carpet in proper graphite grey. Interior chrome was re-plated during restoration and all interior wood was refinished.  The upper and lower dash pad were reupholstered by Just Dashes in Van Nuys, California and the center section was refinished accordingly. The odometer registered 39,383 miles, and the distinctive VDO gauges and dash components presented well, with restored bezels and clean typeface. The interior wood was refurbished.


The car was sold on Bring-a-Trailer in January of 2017.
