Cars that have always been highly coveted, from two "Pagodas" to a Citroën 7C, were on the starting line.
Mercedes "Pagoda" 230 SL, 1964, 13 fiscal hp, serial number: 11304210006247, 134,000 km on the odometer
The catalog made you want to get behind the wheel of one of these attractive classic cars as quickly as possible. The all-category champion, which fetched €76,700, was the Mercedes "Pagoda" 230 SL, a fully restored version of the 1964 Mercedes "Pagoda". Presented for the first time at the Geneva International Motor Show in 1963, this ultra-chic convertible coupé was classified in the "prestige sports car" category. It was presented here in gray livery, with a black hood (serial number: 11304210006247) and a red leather interior. Another "Pagoda" 230 SL (serial number: 11304210005580), of the same vintage, with an in-line six-cylinder engine, but this time white, then sold for €55,425.
Next up were French cars built on the eve of the Second World War. A black and white 1938 Citroën Traction 7C cabriolet with a red leather interior fetched €44,840. It came with its birth certificate "Citroën no. 2021-0105". It is worth noting that production of the 7C ended in 1941 after about 67,000 were made. Lastly, a burgundy 1954 Renault 4CV convertible lived up to all expectations, fetching €29,500. It was beautifully restored by André Lecoq, from whose collection it came.
