Take a look at what we've got in the works
Some jobs are small and we barely get to know the vehicle, but some projects work their way into the fabric of the shop and become members of the Black Forest family. Take a look below at our featured project, a full restoration on a gorgeous 1968 W113 Pagoda.
This 230SL started out in Paris, France and was imported to the U.S. within the first decade of its life. It was repainted bright red, perhaps due to slightly flashier American tastes, reupholstered in tan, and spent its next 30 years roaming the U.S. In 2016 we embarked on a multi-year journey to return the vehicle to its roots, restoring the original white exterior and black interior, along with a rebuild of the engine, transmission, front and rear suspension, and fuel injection pump. This Pagoda currently resides in the Midwest, occasionally even braving a drive in the cold Wisconsin winter.
