This 250SL, as you can see from the price, is not your perfect trailer queen.It is a salvaged title car due to theft according to the owner, but that being said, still drives great and would make an excellent project car or weekend driver. For those of you looking for something which you can tinker with and restore, then this may be the perfect candidate.There are some signs of overspray on parts of the rubber moldings and the hood and doors have a slightly different shade of white then the rest of the car.
The car more than makes up for some of its cosmetic flaws with the way it drives. The current owner recently spent over $5,000 on the engine.All in all, everything is here, including the iconic pagoda hardtop.All this 250 needs is a little TLC and this could be a wonderful weekend cruiser.
The 2.5 liter 250 SL was introduced at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show with production commencing in December 1966 and ending in January 1968. The short one-year production run makes the 250 SL the rarest of the W 113 series cars. The 250 SL retained the stiffer suspension and sportier feel of the early SLs, but provided significantly improved agility with a new engine and rear disk brakes. Range also improved with increased fuel tank capacity from 17.2 US gal to 21.7 US gal, and resiliency improved with a new cooling water tank ('round top') with increased capacity from 2.9 US gal to 3.4 US gal. Like its predecessor, the 250 SL was offered with a 4-speed automatic transmission, a 4-speed manual transmission, and the desirable ZF 5-speed manual transmission. For the first time, an optional limited slip differential was also available. Of the 5,196 250 SLs produced, more than a third were sold in the US.
