1955 Mercedes Benz 300 SL Gullwing
We are almost two months away from one of the premiere gatherings of automotive enthusiast on the planet. Monterey Car Week is around the corner and thus we begin our excitement with a series of previews so you can see the reasons why this week long series of events is so intense for the car aficionado.
The Gooding & Co auction at Pebble Beach is one of those must attend venues. This year among their offerings is an original 1955 Mercedes Benz 300 SL Gullwing. It has remained in the same family since it was delivered, and has racked up just over 16,000 miles in 62 years. It was custom ordered with British racing green paint and tan leather, a rare combination among a production run of just over 1,400.
This rare car and many others will be available at the Gooding & Company auction at Pebble Beach on August 18th and 19th.
