We proudly offer this beautiful 1968 Mercedes-Benz 250 SL Roadster in Signal Red with a Black convertible soft top over a Black MB-Tex interior with 88. 82 miles.  


Specifications:  Mercedes-Benz W113 SL series chassis. 2. 96 cc SOHC Inline-6 engine producing 150hp and 159 lb-ft of torque. 4-speed manual transmission. front and rear disc brakes. and 21. 7 gal fuel tank.   Wheelbase: 94. 5”


With a production run of only 5. 96 in just over a 12-month period. the 250 SL is the rarest of the W113 SL series cars.   The 250 SL received an increase in engine size over the outgoing 230 SL to 2. 96 cc giving it a broader torque curve.   Combined with the stiffer suspension retained from the 230 SL. this made for a noticeable improvement in performance and driving pleasure.   Furthermore. rear disc brakes were added. the fuel tank was enlarged to 21. 7 gal. cooling capacity was increased from 2. 0 gal to 3. 4 gal. and the previously optional oil-water heat exchanger was made standard.  


Previously restored and a numbers matching example. our 1968 Mercedes-Benz 250 SL Roadster. chassis #003157 as originally specified per the vehicle's data plates in Signal Red with the 4-speed manual transmission and from the factory with soft top only. is further equipped with a set of chromed Bundt style lightweight alloy wheels and rare radio delete.   Over $11. 00 was recently spent on this 250 SL including a new convertible soft top. new exhaust. tie-rod ends. rubber seals. interior. plug wires. and an engine tune-up.  The car includes the original owner's manuals with the car's build specification cards and maintenance servicing stamps through most of the miles this car has traveled as well as a separate stack of receipts for the recent refurbishing it received.  The engine is the correct engine number for this chassis.  The original metal Protect-O-Plate is also included.  We also have pictures to show the creases along the front fenders align with the headlight bezel creases.


Our full set of picture including more shots of the correct headlight notches and fender creases plus shots of the undercarriage can be viewed on our northfreewayhyundai. com website.  Once you've arrived on that site. simply click on Pre-Owned Vehicles on the left side menu. select Mercedes-Benz in the filter. and select the 1968 250SL.

This is an excellent opportunity to own a well-sorted example of the rarest model of the W 113 SL generation.   This 250 SL is ready for weekend cruises and car shows. Finished in Signal Red with chrome alloy wheels. it is sure to turn heads!
