Sold for $1,375,000 at 2017 RM Sothebys : Monterey.
This Mercedes-Benz was originally delivered on July 18th of 1960 to the distributor in Panama. It came equipped to American specifications with English instruments, sealed-beam headlights, a removable hardtop, black soft top, and Becker Mexico radio with a Reims III adapter. Prior owners include Fred Di Girato, in 1974, and Ronald Kellogg of Whittier, California, in 1975. Later it was acquired by John Sorrell of Santa Barbara, then by the current owner nearly a decade ago.

The current owner has treated the car to a full restoration. The body is finished in Medium Blue (DB 350), with a matching factory-correct hardtop and blue soft top, and a correct beige interior.

Since the restoration was completed, the car has been shown at the Palos Verdes Concours in 2013 and 2016, and the Los Angeles Concours d'Elegance in 2009, winning Best in Class at all three events.
