The second generation of SL (chassis W113) was manufactured from 1963-1971 and commonly referred to as “Pagoda” (from German for boat).

History

The first W113, 230SL, was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963.The 230 SL remained in production until 1966-67. Its incarnations of 250SL and 280 SL kept the series running till 1971.

Distinctive Features

The most distinctive feature of the 230 SL was the unique shape of it optional hard top that inspired the name “Pagoda”. The roof line dipped slightly in the center, which allowed for large side windows and provided a little extra room to get in and out.

With this model Mercedes introduced air conditioning and automatic transmission for the first time in the SL line up. The weight of W113 was significantly reduced by use of aluminum.

Exterior & Performance

The Pagoda series featured a low waistline, big curved greenhouse windows and retained the star on the grill from previous SL's. Technological improvements included recirculating ball steering (with optional power steering), double wishbone front suspension, independent swing rear-axle and dual-circuit brake system with front disc brakes and power-assisted rear drum brakes.
