    Being an original RHD UK-supplied 1968 Mercedes Pagoda 280SL, with 'matching numbers', automatic gearbox and the rear Kinder seat, this car offers a rare opportunity and a possible quandary for its next owner.

    Presented in its original factory colour combination of Midnight Blue (904G) paintwork, matching hard top and complimented by a blue leather interior, carpets and a navy mohair soft top, this is a car that can be used as is, or considering the market for these cars, is a prime candidate for a full restoration. If restored to the correct standard, the completed car could realise a sale price of up to £250k.
    Being well maintained and with a vast history file, this Pagoda is extremely presentable and is a thoroughly enjoyable drive. The interior and roof are in great condition and all the electrics and mechanicals work exactly as they should. The paintwork is bright and the chrome is in fine condition. As would be expected of an unrestored car from the Sixties, there’s no denying that the car does show some slight signs of its age. Call it ‘patina' if you will, but therein lies the beauty of the car. At the advertised price, this is a car that represents excellent value and a possible profit for its next owner (so much so, we may even be under-selling it!).
    The previous owner certainly enjoyed the car as is, as would most people I envisage. It's certainly a car worthy of pride, however others might choose to improve it and realise the extra investment potential on offer.
    Showing only eight previous owners, this particular car is supported by handbooks, maintenance books, old MOT certificates, a huge array of period and current invoices, and will be supplied with a new, no advisory MOT prior to sale.
