1967 Mercedes-Benz 230 Series

The Mercedes-Benz 230 SL was introduced at the 1963 Frankfurt Auto Show and was internally referred to as the W-113. The 230 SL put emphasis on safety and comfort and was powered by a 2281cc six-cylinder engine fitted with a Bosch fuel-injection system. They were the first Mercedes-Benz automobile to be fitted with an alternator as standard equipment. Another feature on the SL was that it had one of the industry's first uses of a multi-purpose control stalk for lights and wipers.

The 230 SL had a similar wheelbase to its predecessor, the 190 SL and was only 1.5 inches longer in overall length. They were a bit heavier with rather stout construction and was considered one of the sturdiest sports cars in production at the time.

In the front was a broad grille in similar fashion to the 300 SL, albeit in a squared-up shape. Just like its predecessor, it was available as a roadster, roadster/coupe, or coupe. They had the distinctive roofline known as the so-called 'pagoda' roof, which was designed by Paul Bracq and Bela Barenyi. The upright roofline contained lots of glass area, with raised sides and a lower center panel instead of curving conventionally upwards toward the middle, à la the Japanese pagoda.

Mercedes-Benz continued production of the 230 SL models until the 250 SL made its debut at the 1967 Geneva Show. Only 185 examples were produced for the 1967 model year, out of a total of 19,831 produced.
