Patina monster/6: 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL

A classic car that runs in a single family is generally a good thing to be heard by collectors and enthusiasts, let alone if the car in question is an iconic 300 SL.

It is a substantially original car and matching numbers (with the exception of the transmission which belongs to a later model from 1960, certainly replaced following the breakdown of the original transmission); let’s say basically because the seats have already been redone in the past using vinyl and the bumpers were re-chromed in the 80s.

Also the exterior of the car was not like this until a few years ago: the current owner bought the car in 2018 painted red (not original) and then decided to do a light pickling that brought the color back to light. original white DB-50: traces of the red layer are still evident. What can I say: if you have the budget, today classic cars are commodities, but not all of them bear the signs of aging on their skin, like this one. Find it for sale at $1,395,000 here in Astoria, NY.
