1963 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster

Presented by: Broad Arrow Hosted by: Huntsman

One of 26 final-model-year 300 SL Roadsters, and the 13th from the very last car built, this is among only 210 late-production examples of the iconic Mercedes-Benz that is equipped with Dunlop disc brakes and an aluminium engine block. Originally dispatched to a marque distribution agency in the Netherlands, the car was initially finished in Light Blue (DB 334) over Burgundy leather (DB 202).

Prior to joining the current owner’s stable, chassis no. 003246 was the subject of a concours-quality restoration by Jürgen Kassen in Oerlinghausen, Germany to its current, period-correct Pearl Green (DB 213) exterior and green leather finishes. The monumental undertaking also saw the Roadster receive numerous mechanical upgrades and modern convenience features, including an improved cooling system and a diaphragm spring clutch, electric windows, Becker Mexico radio with GPS, air-conditioning and a highly coveted removable body-colour hard-top.

Complementing the 300 SL Roadster’s unique specification are Pearl Green wheel covers and a matching two-piece set of green leather-trimmed fitted luggage. Love it? It’ll be up for sale with Broad Arrow very soon via Collectors Garage.
