Original interior wonderfully preserved and never restored.  Sideways facing jump seat (small 3rd seat).  Becker Europa radio functioning.  Original spare tire, tools & manuals.  Engine looks very clean.  Data card included.

??? The armrest, wood tray and the speakers in the footwells are factory original, really.  :o

I have never seen a 230SL with a Becker radio with the larger knobs. They weren’t made when this car came out.

With respect, it’s a forum. We’re all commentators.

While they may be done nicely those are significant changes to the interior and will be noticed by an experienced group like this when you say original interior. 

The car looks beautiful but I would think you would need many more pictures of the usual underbody rust areas in order to get an online buyer for the car like. That is the most significant issue when paying $90k for a Pagoda.

Carpet is not original. Neither is arm rest on center console. Wood console tray is in a place that I have never seen before. Just comments.
