Description

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster W198 II offered for sale here was delivered to the Sophie Stecker knitwear factory in Schmallenberg-Sauerland on 29.05.1959 via the Mercedes-Benz branch in Dortmund. In the late sixties, the roadster spent its time in America. The last US title was issued in 1976 in California to Malus Ray John. The latter sold the car to Germany in 1991 to the current owner. At that time, the 300 SL was in need of restoration. Back in Germany, the owner immediately decided to have it restored. The bodywork and technology were completely overhauled or renewed.

The engine work was done by Wöhr+Ciccone GmbH and the body work was done by Michael Kohde, both located in the Heilbronn area. As part of the restoration, the car was painted in fire engine red and the interior was upholstered in cognac leather, the original delivery colors were yellowish beige (DB448) and rust brown leather. The numbers of the aggregates match the data card, so it has the coveted "matching numbers".

Since 1992, the current owner had all work thoroughly implemented and documented. The last major invoice is from Mercedes-Benz from 2008, in the amount of € 42,083.00, among other things, the brake system was repaired, the alternator overhauled and the engine revised.

Due to the careful care the roadster presents itself today in an impeccable condition. An exceptional vehicle, which not only represents a great value investment, but also inspires on the road.

History of the Series

The 300 SL Roadster celebrated its premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1957. Just like its predecessor, the Roadster was the initiative of Max Hoffmann. As with the Gullwing, the tubular lattice frame was the load-bearing element, although it was significantly modified in the area of the doors and rear. Space was gained for a usable trunk and hinged doors for much more convenient entry.

The rear axle became a single-joint swing axle with compensating spring, resulting in improved handling characteristics and increased comfort. In March 1961, the air-cooled drum duplex brakes were replaced by modern disc brakes, and a year later a revised engine (M 198 III) with an alloy cylinder block was fitted.

The vehicle is located in our showroom in Stuttgart-Plieningen, close to the airport/trade fair. A test drive and an inspection on the car lift are possible by arrangement.

The sale takes place on request with new inspection, service and TÜV. We also offer a wide range of accessories for your new dream car. If required, we can also deliver the vehicle to you in a closed trailer.
