1955 MercedesBenz 300SL

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

It isn’t sur­pris­ing this ‘Gull­wing’ pulled in such strong bid­ding, be­ing in jus­tright con­di­tion – nei­ther too scruffy or over-re­stored. This was not some ster­ile tro­phy piece, but was good to use and good enough to keep in its cur­rent con­di­tion. Of­fered from the estate of the late busi­ness ty­coon and re­frig­er­a­tion pi­o­neer Kings­ley Cur­tis, who had bought it in 1967, its 1997-2000 restora­tion had lasted well. Paint, body­work and in­te­rior re­ally wanted for noth­ing, other than if it was en­tered for a con­cours. It was a good buy, es­pe­cially when com­pared with the prices be­ing paid for other, cur­rently fash­ion­able mar­ques.
