Description

A highly original 300 SL Gullwing which would also make a great preservation class candidate. Finished in its stunning original colour combination and still retaining much of its original paint and interior.

Only 62,000 miles and very few owners from new that was in single ownership for over 50 years of its life. A matching number example that is offered complete with its fitted luggage, original service booklet, an owner’s manual and parts catalogue.

Within the history file that accompanies the car, there is correspondence between the most recent owner and highly regarded 300 SL restoration specialists Paul Russell & Co. The previous owner was requesting a pre-purchase inspection and the response he received was as follows “without a doubt, one of the finest Gullwings on the planet. Hundreds of Gullwing have gone through our shop in the past 35 years, and this is the one I'd like to own. I can't speak highly enough about it”.
