    A vehicle document box with a drawer for a Mercedes Benz Pagoda

    The purpose of the box was to store everything to do with the life of a particular Mercedes Benz 280 SL Pagoda. This included original invoices, receipts, dealer correspondence, service history and restoration history. Also the old registration book, MOT's, tax disks, as well a photo album of the car.

    The brief, was a box that could be easily stored and accessed and colour wise had to blend in with colour scheme and environment of the owners study.

    The box is essentially a large slipcase which has a drawer in the top section and a large clamshell box in the bottom. The cover of the box, is in black faux leather. The inner purple cover of the box and the binder is Harlech book cloth.

    In the top section of the case sits a drawer with leather pull tags, which as you can see below is quite a simple affair, and would store loose papers.

    In the bottom section of the case lives a large clamshell box. This also has leather pulls and must be slide out to access it.

    The clamshell box can be removed from the slipcase. The outer cover is in faux leather and the lining is in book cloth
