Blue on blue: 1961 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster


On the classic car forums I have attended in the past, I remember that the phrase “they are still out there” often came up. This car is proof that that sentence was correct.


A Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, hidden in a barn and in these conditions, in 2020 by now, is an extremely rare event, and in this regard we congratulate the scout who managed to discover this hidden pearl during the last 50 years. Moreover, the original service booklet is with the car and it shows that it was serviced regularly from 1961 to 1968 and a stack of service records, as well as correspondence between the previous owner and the salesman who originally sold the car, will be included. The original bill of sales, owners manual and service booklet will also be included with the car.


The car is clearly in poor condition, it must be completely restored but it is complete, it is matching numbers and, above all, it has a beautiful combination of colors: light blue with blue interior. Aside from a lower price, you can’t ask for anything better. Find it for sale at $799,995 here in Los Angeles, CA.
