As production wound down for the legendary 300 SL Gullwing, just 311 examples were built in its penultimate year of 1956.

The beautifully restored 300 SL Gullwing on offer, chassis 6500174, exemplifies the model’s reputation as one of the most timeless designs. The Gullwing was originally ordered with a taller 3.42:1 final-drive ratio and benefits from extensive work performed by 300 SL expert Hjeltness Restorations.

Presented in the handsome color combination of silver metallic complemented by a dark blue leather interior, and offered with substantial records, this Gullwing comes complete with matching luggage set, manuals and tools, as well as factory-issued Zertifikat, confirming its original build details.

This beautiful example of the iconic Gullwing would make an excellent candidate for rallies, Mercedes-Benz club events, or concours display.
