Mercedes Pagoda and SL classic restorations have been the core of our business since Silchester Garage started in 2000. We have restored hundreds of these cars to pristine condition with factory settings and even bespoke builds to the customers request.
Mercedes-Benz have been building cars for nearly 90 years, so their name has built a reputation for quality, reliability, durability, handling, style and charisma. The 190SL and the Pagoda are the epitome of all these virtues and now stand as two of the most desirable of modern classic cars.
The 107 Series, post 1971, is fast becoming recognised as a classic and experienced investors are currently buying into the best ones.
A 230, 250 or 280SL, if well cared for, will offer the very best of classic car motoring as a classic that can be used every day.
As an investment these beautiful cars have been increasing in value dramatically over the past few years as first class cars become harder and harder to find. Not only are they very rewarding, but they are a superb piece of engineering and a pleasure to drive. Unlike the modern car in your garage, a really good modern classic will increase in value. There is no better long term investment!
We always carry a stock of cars awaiting restoration or improvement to varying degrees. For those who would like a car restored to their own individual preferences, you can select a base car, specify colours and standard, we will then provide a written quote and time scale.
