Perfect Pair: Original-Owner 1950s Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing and Roadster Headed to Auction

An original owner of two fabulous Mercedes-Bens 1950s car models decided to give up the ghost and take them to an auction. What has caused this big decision? What would make this person want to give something up he has treasured for years? All questions and more answers are given within this auction.

Key Takeaways:

  • The two Benzes, a 1955 SL Gullwing and a 1957 SL roadster, are both completely original, unrestored examples owned by a single family since new.
  • The Gullwing coupe is the more rare example, as its original owner requested it be specially painted in British Racing Green over a tan interior.
  • The 300SL roadster is equally stunning if a bit less distinctive in its Silver-Blue Metallic exterior and gray leather interior. It also comes with an original fitted luggage set.
