This Mercedes-Benz 300 SL was formerly part of the Fred Kemp collection and displayed at the Kemp Automobile Museum in Missouri. After Mr. Kemp's ownership, it was acquired by another enthusiast, who commissioned a no-expense-spared restoration. During the work, it was given a final gear ratio of 3.25:1, to provide for high speeds at lower rpms. The exterior was finished in Black (DB 40) over tan leather (DB 1060) and correct leather-edged boucle-style carpet. It has the European-style headlamps, Rudge-style knock-off wheels, and modern radial tires, as well as both a soft top and the factory removable hardtop. In the trunk are German reproduction luggage and a tool roll.
