Cooper Classics is distinctly pleased to offer a 230SL that we think is likely the best all original, undisturbed, properly preserved SL in the United States. Any seasoned Classic Car enthusiast has heard a heated debate about originality and what is original, versus what is not. After a thorough examination, and consultation with SL/W113 Experts, we have come to the conclusion this car is entirely original, paint and interior. The paint meter readings are consistent with original paint, and the car shows zero evidence of any body work. Every single spot weld (on the fenders, engine bay, and front nose) is present, and entirely undisturbed. The notches on the fenders are beautiful and original. We have been well renowned as SL experts and we consider this car the new benchmark for originality. The underside and floors are 100% original with factory undercoating painted in the body color. The wheel wells and fender wells are unbelievable. All 5 Wheels are date stamped to the car, and retain their factory chalk markings. We have just installed 4 new white-stripe tires and completed a full check over on the car to ensure its ready for its next care taker. The mileage is an original 57,000 miles, and the car runs and drives like new. The interior is in stunning condition, entirely undisturbed, and 100% factory as Mercedes intended it. Always garaged, the leather on this 230SL still retains its soft feel, and there are no tears in the seats or dashboard. The original radio and dashboard vent sliders are present and in good condition. The seldom seen White Steering wheel is in mint condition with no cracking or crazing. The car spent the last 30 years in New Mexico, and prior to that was in California. The car has absolutely no rust anywhere. It was serviced regularly with new fluids and filters as needed. This 230SL is an originality-chasers dream, likely to stand out in even the most discerning of original cars. Despite being entirely original, the car is in excellent condition inside and out and has never been neglected. Contact us today to get the best original SL in the United States.
