The Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster has a long and interesting history that adds an intrinsic value to these very special classic sports cars. Mad Hoffman, who was the leading importer of Mercedes Benz to America during the era, envisioned a road-going version of the company’s 1952 24-Hour of LeMans winning racecar and thought it would be a great way to captivate the postwar American market and affluent buyers of the day. He was right; Hoffman would place an initial order for 1,000 units and the 300SL was born. The 1962 Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster was officially launched back in 1954 as the 300SL Gullwing Coupe. With its Gullwing doors and sleek curvature, the Gullwing would be an instant success and certainly was a showstopper. These first cars would have a stick price of approximately $6,800, rising to nearly $9,000 by the end of production. Later, in 1957 the 300SL Roadster would be released, which would increase price tags to nearly $11,000. Buyers flocked to the car and jumped at the opportunity to own one despite the sticker shock; much the same way they do today. If you’re thinking about selling your 1962 Mercedes 300SL Roadster, you’ve come to the right place for advice and guidance.


1962 Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster Seller’s Guide

Because the market for these cars is unique, it takes a special marketing plan to reach the buyers who are capable and interested in purchasing a 1962 Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster. Unlike some of the larger production Mercedes lines, like the 190SL for example, the limited production of these models makes them even more desirable. In fact, only 244 of the 300SL Roadsters would be produced during 1962. This makes for a small pool of buyers, yet you’ll have to weed out the serious buyers from those who are just looking.
