Mercedes-Benz W113 SL production history poster print
« on: August 19, 2020, 10:52:21 »
Hi everyone, my name is Andrew and I am an automotive illustrator and writer from Melbourne, Australia.  I hope you're all keeping safe with everything is happening in the world right now.  We are under a stage 4 lockdown here which has been called the strictest lockdown rules in the entire world.

I love cars from all eras from around the world and enjoy illustrating them and learning about them in great detail as I plan, illustrate and write up all the technical text for my car production history posters.  You may have seen them around on eBay, Facebook and my own website www.uniquecarposters.com

Someone who saw me post about my artwork on Facebook suggested I come by here, introduce myself and let you know about my W113 print.

I created a poster which profiles the W113 series of "Pagoda" SL models which has been purchased by people all around the world who love these classic and beautiful roadsters.  I normally don't make prints if there are less than 9 different models to put on it, but I really wanted to make it, and was able to do so by including the shooting brake and rally car versions.

I'll include a sample picture of what the print looks like and also a link to my website if anyone want to find out more about it.  (It also has price, international currencies, shipping info, etc.)

The list of models I included are as follow:

1963 230 SL
1966 230 SL
1966 250 SL
1966 250 SL California Coupe
1967 250 SL
1967 280 SL
1970 280 SL
230 SLX Shooting Brake
280 SL rally car

Picture ("SAMPLE" is not on the actual print of course):

Someone has helpfully pointed out that the SLX on my artwork is actually the Frua shooting brake, so I will revise the front end and show the corrected illustration.

Regrettably this posting constitutes commercial advertising according to our rules. You would have to register as a Full Member and then become a vendor for this to be allowed. Your post will then be moved to the "Commercial Advertising" section. Please do this quickly as one of the moderators will remove your post.

Note that the wheels on your 1970 280 SL are not the proper alloy wheels. See https://www.sl113.org/wiki/WheelsTires/Alloys
On the Frua car... https://www.sl113.org/wiki/Main/Diversions

1970 280SL. Please do not mail or PM me questions on Pagoda's... I'm not likely to know the answer.  Please post on the forum instead!
