Mercedes-Benz introduced a Roadster version of the 300SL at the 1957 Geneva Motor Show. It effectively replaced the gullwing coupe, which was retired that year. At nearly $11,000 it was more expensive than the outgoing coupe. The inline-6 SOHC engine was only slightly updated to include a sports camshaft and a higher 9.5:1 compression ratio, which helped the car achieve a top speed near 155 mph. Like the Coupe, the Roadster was available with a wide array of options; some of the more desirable include the hardtop, knock-off Rudge wheels and fitted rear luggage.

This 300SL Roadster was purchased by the present owner as a present for his wife in 1976. The car, at the time, was disabled. The new owner did all the mechanical work on the engine and painted it blue with a blue interior - per the wife's wishes. The car has since been restored to its original colors.
