This rare 250SL Pagoda came back home after 30 years! We are humbled to have clients this loyal. Dr. Peters bought her from us in ’93, tucking his old military flight-surgeon bag in the trunk, and heading down the road, in-line six singing and four-speed auto grabbing gears with surgeon-like precision.
Incredibly, this fifty-one-year-old retains her original carpet and upholstery with a lovely patina. Considering that most 30-year-olds have had all their soft parts replaced, an oldtimer this original is a treasure. When the Full Bird, now an octogenarian was ready to downsize he brought her back to us, flight bag still in the trunk.
She has the ingredients we all seek: matching numbers, no major rust, sound mechanicals and what is missing in virtually all the shiny ‘driver’s’ on the market—a high degree of authenticity and originality. Please view the photos carefully—they’re all there, including the floorboards, showing her original factory undercoat.
