Coupe
Imagine walking down Park Avenue with your new spouse, and spying this spectacular automobile in the window of the Mercedes-Benz deal as you pass. Even better, he procures the car, as your wedding present, on the spot. And best of all, you are able to retain ownership of this cherished car for the rest of your natural life.

That is the history of this particular Gullwing. It was purchased for Mrs. Valerie Knowlton, by her husband to celebrate their nuptials. It was driven by the salesman to her home in Ohio, where it remained in her possession until her passing in 2004.

The car was partially restored and refinished by Paul Russell and company in the early 1990s. It has just over 30,000 original miles and still sports its original leather interior.
