Exclamation 1967 W113 Pagoda - California Roadster for Sale

Hello,

Asking $49,000

Some background information on the coupe:

In 1982, the car was restored by Fadan Longchamp carrosorie in Brussels which entailed 550 man-hours; repainted to metallic silver-grey and has its original tan interior. The car comes with an authentic letter from Longchamp stating said work and estimated value at that time.

After the restoration, the car was bought in Brussels, Belgium by the current owner who retired after serving 35 years in the United States Air Force. It has been well taken care of; garage kept, maintained and only driven once a month on sunny days for well deserved exercise.

This 250 SL has the ZF 5 speed manual transmission and is in very good to good condition with indicated odometer of 19,443km. It comes with a removable hardtop and a bench seat configuration that folds down for a sportier look. Tonneau cover not included.

This car was manufactured to European specifications with chassis number: 113043-10-003911 and engine number: 129982-10-011980. It passes all requirements for road-worthiness in the United States. Also included are maintenance records with receipts, owner's manual, motor and chassis spare parts booklets.

The car is located in Northern Virginia. If you are seriously interested, please contact for further details on the condition of the engine, chassis, interior and exterior.

I never understood the purpose of being coy with pictures about a car for sale. Anyone who is interested is going to need to see photos eventually, so you might as well just put them up in the original post.

Rough estimate :
35 years in the armed forces , retiring in around 1983-5
plus 30 years (2015) would make the owner now 85 years old.
If it is not him posting this, then we're talking about curbside dealer trying to sell this here.
I believe there are for sale sections to post this in.

1! post so far for this user.

Not being coy.

I attached many pictures but they didn't go through because they were too large. I reduced them below 600KB but still no luck.

Email me at robajamigo@gmail.com for pictures and other information if interested.

Where is the for sale section? As I'm new here, not sure of my way around yet.

Hi Scott,

Yes the car has clean Virginia State title. It was my dad's car and because he recently passed away, the family would like to find a caring owner for it.

Email me at robajamigo@gmail.com for pictures and receipts - there are many maintenance records so not sure how many you want.

Best,

Brian

Looks nice. All of your knobs should be big or small. You have a mix, and the wrong radio knobs. Easy to get though.

Yes. The radio is original however some minor parts are add-ons after the Belgian restoration.

At the time, the car was only 15 years old so originality was really not an issue in Longchamps mind. Things have changed since then.

The side mirrors are also not factory. The seat belts were added to make it street legal for importation into the US.
