Synopsis

Mercedes-Benz Pagoda  SLs are cars that have the style and dynamic qualities to be instantly recognised and appreciated 35 years after they went out of production. They are more practical than their predecessors, the 300SL Gullwing and roadsters, and more memorable than their successors, the W107 Panzer-wagen  SLs. This book gives you a warts and all  introduction to what these SLs are like to own, drive and maintain, plus a step-by-step guide to how to evaluate any example you might be considering. It includes 100 photos of what to look for  and what to avoid, plus a realistic assessment of running and restoration costs, as well as market values. This includes servicing and spare parts prices, and the relative values of the various models, specifications and vehicle conditions you are likely to encounter. Written by the Editor of the Mercedes-Benz Club Gazette, it draws on the experiences of the late Roger Edwards  a former Mercedes-Benz apprentice who spent his life working on and enjoying these cars. Including input from Roger s colleagues, who continue to run his company, a leading source of expertise on Pagoda SLs. The book also benefits from the author s 30 years of owning, restoring and enjoying old cars and his contacts in the world of Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts. The latest in a series of buyer s guides published by Veloce, it uses a well-established evaluation system, developed to enable potential buyers to assess any car they view, and builds on all the lessons learnt in the preparation of earlier titles. It is written in an easy to follow, jargon-free style and will equip you with all you need to know when buying a Pagoda   whether you want to get your own hands dirty or just need to know what is necessary to supervise others working on your behalf.
