Coupe
Chassis #: 4500003
The first Gullwing delivered, #4500003, was first owned by legendary American Sportsman Briggs Cunningham. This 300SL was originally a late pre-production and not intended for sale but it was re-numbered by the factory to fulfill Cunningham's rush order. Accordingly, it exhibits numerous physical differences with production Gullwings, a shorter body and hand-formed components. It has recently been treated to a full restoration to its original state.
