Specific description This car has an incredible history. It was sold new in Belgium to Mrs. Lechien, who kept the car till 1981, when she moved to the South of France. The car was then sold to Mr. Donald Newman, an American citizen, who was working in Brussels at that time. When returning to the US, Mr. Newman took the car with him and kept it till 2010. During all those years Mr. Newman pampered the car to a point that the car was called his “Baby”. The entire history of the car is documented in 2 binders. You will find the original Belgian “Certificat de garantie”, the invoice from GXL autos selling the car to Mr. Newman for 150.000 Belgian Francs, Belgian car license, all maintenance invoices, original “German Zertifikat”, different Concours rewards where the 230SL participated and of course its original owners manual and original sales brochure. Very rare, is the fact that the car comes with its original service booklet, with the service track from new till 1983. The car is fitted with the original Becker radio and has all its original extra set of keys. The car is in great “original” shape and does need nothing. It drives smoothly and has a very nice original color combination. This car is a piece of history really worth seeing.

Model description Production of the 230 SL commenced in June 1963 and ended on 5 January 1967. Its chassis was based on the W 111 sedan platform, with a reduced wheelbase by 30 cm (11.8 in), recirculating ball steering (with optional power steering), double wishbone front suspension and an independent single-joint, low-pivot swing rear-axle with transverse compensator spring. The dual-circuit brake system had front disc brakes and power-assisted rear drum brakes. The 230 SL was offered with a 4-speed manual transmission, or an optional, very responsive fluid coupled (no torque converter) 4-speed automatic transmission, which was popular for US models. From May 1966, the ZF S5-20 5-speed manual transmission was available as an additional option, which was particularly popular in Italy. Of the 19,831 230 SLs produced, less than a quarter were sold in the US.
