Just over 5,000 examples of the 250 SL were originally produced (¼ of the amount of 280's manufactured), with only about 1,750 of those imported to the U.S. The 250 retained the stiffer suspension and sportier feel of the early SLs, but provided improved agility, engine and 4 wheel disc brakes.

Here is a wonderful example of a lovingly preserved 250SL. The exterior's body received a glass-out restoration ten years ago, while the interior remains all original and very well preserved. Fender notches and spot welds remain visible, along with original decals, plaques, tags and all body number stamps. It's believed the hardtop remains unrestored. The cabin is remarkably original throughout, while displaying color fade in areas, it impressively shows no signs of tear – attesting the quality of material Mercedes-Benz used and former care. Likewise, the undercarriage and trunk pans are very solid with original seams and sheet metal. The Pagoda runs and drives great, with its last major service performed just over a year ago and engine compression averaging 166psi per cylinder. Importantly, 5158 is complete with books, tools, jack, wheel chalk and spare. Now Available for Worldwide purchase and delivery.
