The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster of the W198 II series offered for sale here was delivered to its first owner in March 1958. The history is mostly available on the basis of documents and invoices, so that the owners can be traced almost completely over the years. About 20 years ago, the vehicle was restored in Germany, focusing on rebuilding its original state. A copy of the invoice and a photo documentation are available.

The roadster has been serviced regularly at the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in Fellbach since 2007. The engine was completely overhauled there in 2012, with the odometer reading approx. 21,000 km. In addition, several steps were taken in subsequent years to restore the state of extradition. A later-installed disc brake system and Rudge wheels were removed, and the brake system with all its components was completely overhauled at the same time.

Thanks to the careful care, the Roadster presents itself today in a mint condition. It is in the original color combination of silver grey metallic (180) with blue leather trim and a dark blue soft top. The numbers of the aggregates also match the data card, so it has the coveted “matching numbers. ”

A really extraordinary vehicle which not only represents a great investment, but also inspires on the road.
