Selling a 1960 Mercedes Benz 300SL


1960 Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster

Breathtaking and powerful, the redesigned 300SL roadster and successor to the 300 SL Gullwing coupe was one of the most successful launches by the German automaker, Mercedes Benz. In fact, production of the Gullwing began to wane as news of the roadster began to spread. The 1960 Mercedes Benz 300SL – along with other year models from 1954 to 1963 – was not only the epitome of a classic roadster, but became and instant icon in automotive history. From February 1957 to February 1963, Mercedes produced 1,858 units with only 249 units being produced in 1960. With a fuel-injected, six-cylinder engine capable of producing 215 horsepower and a four-speed manual gearbox to send power to the rear wheels, the 300SL roadster was as close to a street-legal race car as you could get in the 1960’s.
