Exquisitely restored by 300 SL specialist Mark Allin
Winner of Best in Class at the Amelia Island Concours d' Elegance
The finest restored example in the world
When it was time for this 300SL to be restored it was entrusted to Mark Allin, of Rare Drive, for a complete restoration. Allin, who had spent many years as the shop foreman at Paul Russel & Company, was intimately familiar with Mercedes -Benz's, 300SLs in particular. Every aspect of the car was addressed during its
two-year restoration, and the car was brought back to an exceptional, award winning standard. It retains the correctly applied factory inspection marks, clamps, hoses and decals in the engine bay, and is truly stunning in every respect.
This Mercedes Benz was refinished in Anthracite Grey over black leather interior. Along with the correct chrome-plated wheels and Michelin X-stop tires, this 300 SL Roadster is truly in a class of its own. Attesting to the quality of the restoration, the car was shown at the Amelia Island Concours d' Elegance in 2004, where it took home Best in Class honors.
This 300 SL Roadster is an icon of engineering and design, and was truly ahead of its time. It has been cherished by enthusiasts since the day it was introduced.
