1966 MERCEDES-BENZ 230 SL
This is likely one of the most highly documented Mercedes-Benz 230SLs in existence. The amount of immaculately preserved paperwork accompanying this car is simply astounding. It includes all order documents, factory and dealer correspondence, extensive service records dating to when the car was new, and much more. This car was ordered new by a local St. Louis businessman who chose to take European delivery of his new pride and joy. He was so meticulous; he even chose to pay an additional $73.00 to have the factory conduct a proper 310-mile break-in procedure before taking delivery. All of these details and more have been preserved in the voluminous documentation. Finished in highly desirable and correct dark green with natural leather interior having replaced its original turquoise MB-Tex interior, this exceptional looking and driving 1966 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL has just been freshened and is ready to be enjoyed. Having won the prestigious Spa-Sofia-Liege rally in its introductory year, the 230 SL was built as a genuine drivers car. Whereas some classic cars are only taken out on special occasions, this car is truly inspiring and fun to drive in spite of its vintage. This cars sporting nature is further enhanced with a four-speed manual transmission. In addition to offering classic looks and pure driving pleasure, the 230 SL has been enjoying a tremendous appreciation in value, making them an enviable investment opportunity. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.
