This lovely example is a 48,664 low mileage car finished in its factory color of Light Biege exterior with red leather interior. Comes equipped with 2 tops: Its matching body color hard top, and chocolate brown canvas convertible soft top. Powered by a strong 2.3 liter, single overhead cam, inline six-cylinder engine with Bosch multi-port fuel injection; mated to a smooth 4-speed manual transmission, with rear wheel drive, power steering, and an authentic German Becker ‘Europa’ radio, easily the most desirable combination of equipment.
The rare European spec is indicated by its side molding delete, one piece headlamps, and km gauge readings.
Other features include:
-Mercedes alloy wheels, headrests, and seat belts.
-Independent rear suspension
-Sideways facing rear jump seat (3rd seat)
This Pagoda is coming out of long-term ownership, from its 3rd owner who purchased the car in 1992. It has always been stored in a dry, climate controlled garage and driven sparingly for pleasure.
Extensively maintained with complete service history and invoices available, which show it has had all major systems serviced, and had continuous upkeep over its entire ownership. This well cared for car has had 1 repaint in the original color, is in good cosmetic condition, and very good mechanically with clean engine bay. It starts like clockwork, shifts smooth, drives and brakes straight and is ready to enjoy. There is a small amount of corrosion on the passenger front floor, the rear seat upholstery needs to be installed, and a small ding to left quarter.
In addition, the owner’s manual, parts brochure, and Benz literature will be included.
With a great look inside and out along with the manual gearbox, it is an ideal weekend car for long, smooth top-down drives. With Pagodas selling well in excess of this attractive estimate, this particular example, with rare options, and low mileage represents a fantastic value in such condition.
