One of the most popular and instantly recognizable classics, the 113 chassis 'Pagoda' top roadsters are as beautiful as Marlene Dietrich, as sporting as Boris Becker and as ruthlessly efficient and reliable as anything that its Teutonic parents could create. A true delight to drive with all the sybaritic amenities the era could afford (power steering, power brakes, optional air conditioning, etc.), these handsome machines were both practical and fun. The superbly designed, disappearing soft top protected the occupants from all but the very worst that the elements could throw at it and when that was not enough, the removable hard top fit so well that one could scarcely discern that the car was ever convertible.

Offered here is a particularly nice example having benefitted from a warm, sunny life here in Los Angeles and hence, has no corrosion issues. The light ivory (DB 670) coachwork is in very good shape and the cognac interior & brightwork present very well also. Blessed with both the factory air conditioning and excellent four speed automatic transmission options, driving under any circumstance is relaxed and comfortable. Complete with a Becker Europa radio, this little beauty is ready for a cruise up the coast or a trip round the Fatherland!
