Mercedes 250 SL 

The Mercedes 250 SL has been described as the ultimate classic cruiser. Technically labeled as the W113 Pagoda SL, Mercedes hit the jackpot with this stylish sports car. While the 250 SL design has endured the tests of time, so has the car’s reliability. 250 SL models hold their own among the most iconic classic cars. 

With production running from 1966 to 1968, 250 SL models are quite rare. Five-speed ZF manual transmission and horizontal jump seats are two other 250 SL elements that make this car one of a kind.

Originally sold in Italy, the 250 SL is a number matching car. You can hear the value of 250 SL’s rising with that fact alone. 

If you’re looking for a car to take out on a perfect day cruise, the 250 SL is the vehicle for you. Values for W113SLs have risen steadily since 2014, with a price tag spike occurring in 2015. Top condition 250 SL models can easily fetch six-figures. 

Taking after the successful 230 SL, the 250 SL exterior continued the use of clean and elegant lines. Wheels for the 250 SL were smartly placed with the whole vehicle while the removable hardtop was plain fun.

What makes the 250 SL so desirable—other than the clean styling—is its classic style being able to keep up with modern traffic. 

With just 5,196 models produced, it’s fair to say the 250 SL is the rarest of the three SL models manufactured between 1963-1971 as it was essentially a one-year produced vehicle. 

250 SL Technical Specs 

Achieving a top speed of 121 mph, Mercedes 250 SL could go 0-62 mph in 10 seconds. Curb weight is 2998 pounds while a naturally aspirated in-line six-cylinder engine sits beneath the hood. 

The 250 SL engine produces a maximum power of 148 bhp. Car power is transmitted to the road through rear-wheel-drive complimented by a four-speed manual gearbox.

Monocoque chassis, with front suspension thanks to coils and wishbones, were utilized by the 250 SL. Strong braking power was achieved via four-wheel discs. Compared to the 230 SL, torque on the 250 SL increased by nine percent to 173.6 lb.ft. 

250 SL Engine

All of the sixes within the 250 SL engine are durable and can cover a couple hundred thousand miles before needing a rebuild. While these are impressive engine marks, proper maintenance is emphasized to achieve said status. 

250 SL Transmission

From the start of production, Mercedes offered SL in house transmissions that came in four-speed manual or four-speed automatic. A more rare option came along in 1966 when some five-speed manuals were introduced. 

While 250 SL automatics can result in harsh shifts, adjustments can be made for improvements. When people are seeking out 250 SL models in today’s age, most buyers request automatic transmissions. 

250 SL Production

During 250 SL production, Mercedes placed a rear bench seat within the coupe. The added rear bench seat could be folded down to make room for luggage and took the place of the convertible top well.

People have been telling me to go look at Dusty Cars and I'm glad I did. One day, I took the family round and met Doug, the place is great. We saw some really nice vintage cars and even got taken for a drive in one of them.

It's been some time since I've been able to do something for myself and I was looking for something that wasn't going to cost me anything, but still give me a pleasurable outing. Dusty Cars was that one outing. I was able to just look around and take in all the cars around me.

Dear Dusty Cars, Thank you for your hospitality in welcoming us into your dealership. My grandson loved seeing all of your vehicles and committed to star saving his allowance in order to buy one as soon as he turns 21. He's not anywhere near where he needs to be yet, but we'll hold thumbs and keep you in mind for that upcoming visit.

Doug was fantastic to us when we first arrived, but after he had to go and do something urgently, we spoke to another worker there who took great care of us too. Their customer service is good!

Upon meeting John at Dusty Cars, we knew we were in the right place to get our new vintage car. The staff was very professional and friendly, they knew everything about all of the cars and were able to help us get exactly what we needed. Thank you for everything you've done for us. We'll definitely be back again.

I particularly love the details that the owners pay attention to. There are very few things better than sitting in vintage car with the smell of the leather seats, seeing brand new dials on the car. It's great to see how much care is put into restoring these works of art.

I was accessing my father's storage garage after he passed away, which coincidentally, was just across the street from Dusty Cars! I knew there was a car in there and thought it must have been a sign from God to take my car there and sell it to them. It was such a nice experience and I'll go back again.

The dealership is a wonderful place to visit. Love the cars, love the people, love the dog!!! Even though I'm not a collector of any kind, there's something special about coming to see the love they put into their restoration process.

I've always been a lover of classic cars, precisely the 1956 Porsche 356 Coupe, which is considered as the grandfather of Porsche. I was filled with excitement when I saw my dream car listed on eBay by Dusty Cars. I could count almost a 100 stunning pictures of this car on display, with the metal components, the 4-cylinder, air cooled engine and the red leather interior all in good condition. Douglas is indeed a professional; his attention to details is flawless.
