Selling a 1958 Mercedes Benz 300SL


1958 Mercedes Benz 300SL

Available from 1954 to 1963, the second generation of the Mercedes Benz 300SL includes the 1958 Mercedes Benz 300SL and is considered to be one of the most sought-after European collectors cars on the market today. With most automotive brands, the road car generally comes first and a racing version typically follows, however the exceptional Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing hit the market in 1954 derived directly from the widely popular sports racing car. Having won the Carrera Panamerican and the 24-Hours of LeMans in 1952, the Gullwing had a rich history of successful competitive racing. The road car retained much of the racing versions strong tubular frame with high sills, and featured fully independent suspension and a fuel-injected version of the Mercedes Benz’s 2,995cc single-overhead camshaft engine.


1958 Mercedes Benz 300SL Seller’s Tips

The 1958 Mercedes Benz 300SL, when introduced, offered an open two-seater with a modified frame and conventional doors rather than the iconic Gullwing doors. Power also went up slightly and the swing axle rear suspension was modified to improve handling. The most notable change however, was the introduction of four-wheel disk brakes in 1961. If you are looking to sell Mercedes 300SL models from 1958, having the popular hardtop option can increase the value, as well as having documentation regarding sales and history of the car.
