1966 Mercedes Benz 230 SL

This is one of the finest starting points for a restoration that we have ever seen. We are accustomed to working with cars that are very deeply compromised. It is an honor to work with a car that has led such a charmed life.

‘Benzie’ has a four-speed manual transmission and 85,000 miles on the clock. Most of her life was spent on the West Coast with one dedicated owner. She has always been part of the family and now the time has come to give her a careful going over. We stripped away the old paint, repaired damaged metal, and rebuilt the leaking engine and transmission.
