The 250 SL was in production for only one year, starting in December 1966 and ending in January 1968, which makes it the rarest of the W113 series cars. The 250 SL is the most popular car that Mercedes-Benz ever built and is extremely popular with collectors.
This donated vehicle features a rare Pagoda Top and is more popularly known as the “Pagoda” Coupe because of the unique shape of its roof line. The 250 SL was quite advanced for its era, having four-wheel disc brakes, all-independent suspension and a mechanically fuel injected six cylinder engine. Our donated vehicle features a hardtop, convertible frame. This vehicle is in need of a full restoration but once complete it will be extremely valuable.
This car was recently up for auction where it received a high bid of $30,000!
100% of the proceeds from the sale of this car will go towards supporting the ASPCA’s programs and mission “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.”

Last week Car Donation Wizard and V-DAC exhibited at the AFP Shift Conference in San Antonio,TX. The event took place over three days and had over 1500 attendees. We met some incredible people who were intrigued by the vehicle donation process and some who were unaware of how easy it is to start a vehicle donation program for a charity of any size.
Top four questions non-profit professionals asked us at AFP 2014:
What does V-DAC stand for? Vehicle Donation to Any Charity. Yes, that means any size charity big or small, v-dac can make a program to suit your needs and the needs of your organizations. Non-profit organizations can partner with V-DAC and start seeing the benefits of a vehicle donation program as soon as they get their first donated vehicle.
How much does it cost to set up the program? The Vehicle Donation Program costs charities nothing to start up. All costs associated with the program are deducted from the sale of the vehicle. If you don’t get any donations, it doesn’t cost you anything!
How much money is returned to the charity? We are proud to say that Car Donation Wizard returns over 80% of gross proceeds to our charity partners, We are the highest returning car donation program in the nation.

This weekend thousands of Irish-Americans will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick is the patron Saint of Ireland and his feast day has become an international festival, celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.
For some, it’s a chance to tuck into a steaming platter of corned beef and cabbage. For others, it’s a day for toasting all things Irish and a chance to celebrate Celtic culture, from The Book of Kells to “Lord of the Dance”.
Here at Car Donation Wizard we would like to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day and we would love to hear from our donors about their St.Patrick’s Day traditions. Leave your comments below.
To commemorate St. Patrick’s Day, Car Donation Wizard has picked out some green cars that have been donated to our charity partners.
