The so-called Pagoda began life in 1963 as the second generation of the Mercedes-Benz SL. In one and the same model, it was the successor to the 190 SL as well as to the iconic 300 SL gullwing-door sports car and roadster. In Europe and especially in Germany, the Pagoda SLs have long been sought-after collector’s items. There are many vehicles on the market that were originally delivered to the USA and later brought back by enthusiasts and dealers. Expert advice is recommended when assessing their condition.
