1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing

The Mercedes Benz 300SL – both in its Coupe and Roadster body style – is one of the most sought-after models by collectors today, with some examples easily stretching into the six-figure range. Even today, the modern Mercedes Benz 300SLS AMG is one of the most coveted sports cars on the road. Interestingly, more than 80 percent of the 300SL’s total production of approximately 1,400 examples was sold in the United States, which made the Gullwing the first Mercedes-Benz to sell in considerable numbers outside its home market. In fact, the 300SL is often credited for changing the company’s image in America from a manufacturer of reliable sedans to that of a producer of sporty luxury cars. If you’re the proud owner of a 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing – no matter what the condition – and are thinking about selling, the Alex Manos team would be delighted to speak with you. While condition plays an important role in a Gullwing’s value, there are plenty of collectors and enthusiasts out there that would love to get their hands on this car despite condition. That being said, 300SL Gullwing restoration can often cost as much then it’s likely to sell for. These considerations should be made when placing a value of your 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing. The professionals at the Alex Manos team are experts in evaluating classics of all makes, models and conditions, and can help you with this task.


1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing Seller’s Tips

One of the most important Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team provides to sellers of the 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing is to be prepared for the sale, as it can happen quickly. Ensure that you have current photographs of the classic Gullwing, including specific items such as the engine and chassis numbers and any problem areas. If you’re selling a model in need of restoration or that is unfinished, be sure to list any parts or components that come with the sale. You’ll want to consider these parts in your value as well. Lastly, one of the hardest Seller’s Tips is to try to take the emotion out of the sale. This can cloud your judgment and you may miss a great opportunity.
