Dr. Tardy is a professor of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery who purchased this car new and was its caretaker for over 40 years. A former flight surgeon, he knew the importance of maintaining machinery. This car’s complete service history is intact.
Garage kept and driven sparingly, this W113 Pagoda displays remarkable originality: all the glass, soft top, Becker Europa stereo — stereos in 280SLs were first offered 1971 —, Hirschman electric antenna, Frigiking air conditioner, hardtop headliner, 98% of the interior including all its wood and rare Roser leather upholstery; even the soft top is absolutely original, and all of the options are documented with codes on the data card. All the books, manuals, and the original tool kit are safely secured in the spare tire pocket inside the trunk. With a patinated exterior finish this is no cosseted garage queen, but a true driver which can be pushed around a twisty mountain road, cruised down the boulevard, or lovingly parked in front of your favorite spot.
