Originally delivered new to Hong Kong in 1964. repatriated to the UK in 1981. this stunning Mercedes-Benz Pagoda still retains its period Log Book from its time overseas.
A very early car with the vertically mounted spare wheel which Mercedes removed in 1964.
Finished in Diamond Blue Metallic with contrasting Blue hide interior. this concourse example of the marque boasts an incredible history file with considerable sums having been lavished on the car in its time.
Since 2007 this Mercedes has undergone a complete nut and bolt restoration by recognised and skilled craftsmen which was completed in 2014.
The body work was prepared by Nigel Cooper Coachworks of West London. renowned for their Concourse winning skills with Mercedes-Benz. Aston Martin and Facel Vegas and the gorgeous paintwork. trim. engine rebuild and finishing were completed by respected Mercedes' experts. Roger Edwards of Amersham.
The result is an absolutely stunning example of this classically beautiful car and as close to 'perfect' as we. in the old car game. dare to award.
The engine bay is detailed to perfection and those parts that can be made to shine and gleam.
The interior is beautiful and with that extra Dickie seats it opens up that many more options (grand children / dog?) and down to its period correct Becker radio. its a wonderful place to be.
Everything else appears to work perfectly.
The 2300cc. engine mated to the manual gearbox delivers a spirited and rewarding drive. not always the case with the smaller engined cars.
Complete with matching hardtop. this little Mercedes has only been lightly used since its restoration.
Any post restoration niggles have been ironed out and the car has been fully set up. runs sweetly and is ready to enjoy.
The recent replacement of the clutch master and slave cylinders. whilst not strictly required. demonstrates the continuing care that this car received with its previous owner.
We understand. but can't confirm. that this car could re-enter and be registered in Hong Kong with no duties or taxes to pay so a very attractive proposition for such a person
To replicate this example it would cost in excess of £160. 00 so offered for sale with no waiting. ready on the road to be enjoyed and to take part on those continental tours that one so wishes
This is one of if not the finest available on the market today. the ultimate specification that will certainly take some beating.
Not to be missed and a water tight investment.
Must be viewed to be appreciated
