Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster.

Supplied new to Milan, Italy in 1959. The SL remained with its first owner until 1994.

The second owner commissioned a total restoration at Kienle Automobiltechnik in 1994/1995. The SL was completely dismantled and all components including engine, gear box, axles and brake system were fully overhauled. During restoration a number of upgrades were installed including a diaphragm spring clutch, adjustable throttle body, additional fans and an exchangeable air filter cartridge.

Regular maintenance and repairs have been carried out and a record of supporting invoices are available. Improvements during restoration include diaphragm clutch, additional radiator cooling fan and exchangable air filter. One of the best driving SL Roadster's we have had the pleasure of owning. 

This SL is in first class condition and is finished in its original factory Anthracite-Grey (172G) with Red Leather interior. Supplied with a matching Anthracite-Grey Factory hardtop, 2 piece fitted luggage set, Becker Mexico radio, polished wheel rims, all books and tools.
