Mercedes Benz 250 SL

Thundefinede 250Sl is the rarest of the Pagodas and was built from 1966 - 1968. Apart from a 2.5 litre engine, the other upgrade from the 230SL was all round disc brakes.

With the removable hard top, this is a very usable classic car to have.

Although this particular car looked cosmetically good upon arrival, there was much restoration work needed underneath.

Floors were replaced along with sections of the inner sills. The outer sills were also replaced. New inner wings were welded on. The front wings were good but were removed to gain access for work needed underneath.

The shell was then taken back to bare metal, treated, primed and painted.

As the interior had been removed it was an appropriate opportunity to improve the interior.
