At the 1957 Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced a new version of the celebrated 300 SL wearing open coachwork: the 300 SL Roadster. In an early suggestion of the increasing focus the manufacturer would place on luxury cars over the ensuing decades, the new roadster was above all a more refined car than its gull-winged predecessor.
Originally supplied new to the USA. In 1990/1993 the car was subject to a total body off restoration regardless of cost by a well known US Restorer under the supervision of John Olsen the renowned 300SL expert and author of the “The SL Experience”. Every detail was completed correctly, its mileage was then 67,000 and the current mileage is now shows only 74,300. The car has matching chassis/engine numbers and 3.89 rear axle.
Originally finished in DB166 Blue Grey, our car has been repainted in a stunning Silver Blue metallic.
