Evaluation: From the Charlie Thomas Estate collection. Tired bumpers. Older repaint with some blisters, some chips at the back of the hood, and some touch ups behind the seats. Pitting on the trunk handle and taillight bezels. Slightly grubby but presentable engine bay. Dry-looking wood but otherwise good interior. A Pagoda SL almost always looks sharp, but this one is still just an average driver.
Bottom Line: Ambitiously estimated but realistically bought, this car also sold at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale in 2016 for $48,400. Pagoda SLs, of which the 230 is the first and the least valuable, are solid and pleasant cars to drive even if they aren’t overtly sporty, and this is a spot-on price for an average-quality example.
