Mercedes-Benz built 324 examples of the 300 SL Roadster in 1958. This particular example was originally equipped with US-specification sealed-beam headlamps, windshield washers, and Becker Mexico radio with antenna and dual speakers. It was finished in Hellblau (Light Blue, DB 334G) and the interior was trimmed with Red leather.

This Roadster was ordered through the manufacturer's distributor in London and is believed to have remained in Great Britain through 1981, after which was acquired by John Wenaas of Arizona. It was purchased by Jim Rogers in 2006. Mr. Rogers had the interior sympathetically restored, reupholstering the seats and doors in white leather with gray carpeting, and mounting whitewall tires.

After Mr. Rogers passing, his collection was offered in early 2013. Sold in January of 2013, it passed to Larry Pappo who treated the car to a restoration, costing nearly $190,000. The exterior was finished in the factory color of Anthracite and the interior was re-trimmed with gray leather and complementary carpets and floor mats.

The current caretaker acquired the car in January of 2016.
