Here are the first pictures of my new project, the restoration of a Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagode (Pagoda) from 1965. It's imported from Texas, USA and I'm not sure yet but it seems it still has the original paint. At least the engine is till original. Unfortunately the paint has already been sanded and many parts have been removed from the car, I bought the car like this. It is certain that I won't use the 30 years old tires any more. ;D But a nice surprise was that the soft top is in a good shape.
