Matching numbers Received a full cosmetice restoration Restored to concours standard Comes with the original M-B build sheet This is a superb example of a matching numbers 300SL Roadster, which was originally supplied to the US market, and has chrome wheels. In the early 1990's, the car received a thorough mechanical re-commissioning by noted 300SL expert Scott Grundfor who restored the car to concours standard. It was subsequently treated to an extensive cosmetic restoration by Tom Drummond's Quality Restoration services in California. After a bare-metal strip down, the roadster was refinished in black, and trimmed with a light-brown Bamboo interior. The gauges were restored, and all chrome and bright work re-finished to factory correct specifications. As one of the early-production 300SL Roadsters, this example has the less corrosion-prone non-alloy block 2996 cc 6 cylinder engine and 4 wheel independent suspension with drum brakes. It comes with the original M-B build sheet and tools and full original documentation. This car is in truly superb condition, with mirror-like paintwork and chrome, and an interior that looks almost too good to sit in, and smells wonderful. The underbo

1962 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster s/n 198.042-10-003050, engine no. 198.982-10-000003 White with Cognac Interior The 300SL was one of the most exotic cars available when it was new. Directly descended from racing cars, and chock full of innovative features, they were fast, beautiful, and expensive. Arguably the first 'supercar' ever (others claim that honor should be bestowed upon the Lamborghini Miura), the 300SL has been described as the McLaren F1 of its day. Thanks to Mercedes' development work during World War II in aircraft engines, the300SL became the first production car to feature fuel injection (directly injected into the cylinders no less), and the light but strong spaceframe necessitated the now legendary and often copied upwards opening doors on the closed variant of the car. The result was a stunningly beautiful but also functional car that was, depending on gearing, the fastest production car in the world. Surrounded by separate frame carbureted contemporaries, the SL was truly a glimpse of the future and remains today a very special car indeed. Its appeal is timeless and consequently, 300SLs have remained 'blue-chip' collector cars that are always in demand and perh

1986 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Recreation by Ostermeier s/n 658761 Black with Tan Leather Interior Tony Ostermeier built approximately 50 hand-crafted and impressively accurate Gullwing recreations. They were so accurate and well-made that some of his reproduction parts were used during the restorations of genuine 300SLs. Under the skin, the cars featured modern Mercedes running gear, mostly from the contemporary W124 300E, including drivelines, suspension, brakes, and fuel-injected 3.0 liter inline-6 powerplants. The bodies were made of aluminum reinforced with aircraft epoxy/fiberglass, and steel, and the shape for it was molded off an original 300SL Gullwing to ensure the accuracy of its forms. The specification was modern, including 4-wheel disc brakes, air conditioning, and full leather interiors. This particular example has covered 16,000 miles and is in excellent condition, with minor paint blemishes and light weathering to the chrome. The overall visual impression is extremely strong and the look and aesthetic of the car are shockingly accurate. Even the seasoned enthusiast would peg this as a genuine 300SL based on a quick walk around the car. The interior is quite accu
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 This 1955 300 SL Gullwing is a full matching numbers example in original factory colour specification. First owner was famous German racing driver Kurt Ahrens. This is an unmolested and cherished original that benefits from a recent sympathetic restoration that includes a professional bare metal re-spray and re-trim, engine, gearbox, axle and brake reconditioning by a German specialist. Full original tool kit and jack. This is an exceptional and useable example with very low mileage.
Let's face facts: 300SL Gullwings and Roadsters have skyrocked in price over the last few years, so if you're going to plunk your money down to own one, make sure it's got a pedigree like this one. This spectacular Roadster has had just two owners for 95% of it's life and has gone a mere 77,000 original miles. It has its orignal, matching numbers engine, is still in its original colors, has all of it's original books, tools, jack, spare, radio... etc. Best of all, all of these facts are supremely well documented with copious receipts going back to virtually new. Over the years, expert servicing has been performed by 300SL luminaries Jerry Hjeltness, Steve Marx and Paul Russell. It doesn't get better than that. Price is SOLD
