More About this Item


Description

The Pagoda was built in March 1964 and registered for the first time on the 21st May 1964. Imported into Switzerland in its early years, the 230SL, with its sought-after manual gearbox and hard top spent most of its time in the French part of Switzerland. Taken over by the vendor about 20 years ago, the car has since been dry stored on his premises. The engine is running, and the Mercedes can be driven. The injection pump needs an overall though and the coachwork shows areas of corrosion. The car has a Swiss registry, and the last MOT was completed in June 1997.
Deutsch: Diese Pagode wurde im März 1964 gebaut und am 21. Mai 1964 erstmals zugelassen. Bereits in den frühen Jahren in die Schweiz importiert, verbrachte der 230 SL mit Handschaltung und Hardtop die meisten Jahre in der französischen Schweiz. Vor rund 20 Jahren vom Einlieferer übernommen hat der Wagen seither in dessen Halle gestanden. Der Motor läuft und der Mercedes ist bedingt fahrbar. Die Einspritzpumpe muss revidiert werden und die Karosserie weist Roststellen auf. Der Wagen besitzt einen Schweizer Fahrzeugausweis mit der letzten MFK im Juni 1997.
Français: La Pagode a été construite en mars 1964 et immatriculée pour la première fois le 21 mai 1964. Importée en Suisse dans ses premières années, la 230SL, avec sa boîte manuelle et son hard top, a passé la plupart de son temps en Suisse romande. Reprise par le vendeur il y a environ 20 ans, la voiture a depuis été stockée à sec dans ses locaux. Le moteur fonctionne et la Mercedes peut être conduite. La pompe à injection a besoin d'une révision générale et la carrosserie présente des zones de corrosion. La voiture est immatriculée en Suisse et la dernière expertise a été effectuée en juin 1997.
