1966 Mercedes-Benz 230SL Convertible

Courtesy of Bonhams

The 230SL offered here was delivered new in the U.K. and is a rare original right-hand-drive model. Noteworthy features include power-assisted steering and a factory third seat. LWY 43D has had only two previous keepers, and there is a 2013 letter on file from the second — a Dr. Firth — testifying to the “very little mileage.”

The odometer reads 24,878 miles, which we cannot confirm but believe to be genuine. Restored in 2012, the car is described by the vendor as in good condition throughout. Offered with a V5C document.
