Specific description This car was sold new in Germany. In 1986 an US army officer, bought the car in Germany and exported the car to the U.S. Before doing so, he had the car restored in Germany, including new paint in the original color, a new interior and engine rebuilt. In 1993 the owner further improved the car with a new convertible top, new floors, new radiator, new exhaust, new headliner in hardtop, new carpets and new wheels. This is a very nice car with matching numbers and a perfect driver. Both tops are in very good condition and there is no rust anywhere.

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.
