Rallye Roadster
The 'gullwing' coupe was produced from 1954-1957, but a brand new roadster was introduced at the end of 1957. The roadster remained in production until 1963 with only 1858 units being built it its six year span.

This example is a very early production 300SL Roadster. It was originally purchased by a Maine Mercedes-Benz dealer and picked up Germany. It has just completed a total restoration.
