1961 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster VIN: 198.042.10002637 In 1961, only two years after becoming the 49th state, Alaska took delivery of its first and only 300 SL. This roadster must have been an exotic sight sitting on the show room floor of Anchorage Studebaker, Packard, Mercedes-Benz. The lucky man who drove away with the rare treasure was Dr. William Sedwick. For the next 42 years the car would make a welcome traveling companion through the Alaska countryside for Dr. Sedwick and his wife, driving the 65 miles from Anchorage to their vacation home on Nancy Lake. In 2003, after only 45,000 miles, the car moved on to a new owner, Gordon Apker of Seattle, Washington. Mr. Apker enjoyed the 300 SL for one year before deciding to press forward with a complete concourse restoration. That daunting task fell on the renowned 300 SL restorer Rudi Koniczek of Victoria, British Columbia. Over the next 3 years Rudy & Company completed a meticulous nut-and-bolt restoration. During that time the decision was made that the bare metal refurbishment would be finished in Weissgau (white-grey) with a complementing darker shade on the rare factory hardtop. Completing the look are the dark green leathe

The Mercedes-Benz R107 and C107 were produced from 1971 through 1989, being the second longest single series ever produced by the automaker, after the G-Class. They were sold under the SL (R107) and SLC (C107) model names as the 280 SL, 280 SLC, 300 SL, etc. up to the 560 SL. The R107 replaced the W113 SL-Class in 1971 and was replaced by the R129 SL-Class in 1989. The SLC replaced the W111 Coupé in 1971 and was replaced by the C126 S-class coupe in 1981. Following the discontinuation of the SLC in September 1981, the 107 series continued initially as the 280, 380 and 500 SL. At this time, the V8 engines were re-tuned for greater efficiency, lost a few hp and consumed less fuel- this largely due to substantially higher (numerically lower) axle ratios that went from 3.27:1 to 2.47:1 for the 380 SL and from 2.72:1 to 2.27:1 for the 500 SL. From September 1985 the 280 SL was replaced by a new 300 SL, and the 380 SL by a 420 SL; the 500 SL continued and a 560 SL was introduced for certain extra-European markets, most notably the USA. Also in 1985, the Bosch KE Jetronic was fitted. The KE Jetronic system varied from the earlier, all mechanical system by the introduction of a more modern

1986 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Recreation by Ostermeier s/n 658761 Black with Tan Leather Interior Because the 300SL Gullwing is one of the most iconic classic cars there is, it is no surprise that they are well into seven figures now. They have always been desirable, rare, and expensive, and for this reason, Tony Ostermeier opened a facility in Gardena, California called Gullwing Car Company. There, approximately 50 hand-crafted and impressively accurate Gullwing recreations were built in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They are in fact 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

1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster s/n 198.042.7500568 Fire Engine Red with Tan Leather 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 perhaps even cultural

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
