Only 53 miles since completion of “Concours” restoration at our Central California facility
This elite Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster example was purchased from the estate of George Shank in 2005. It was in outstanding unrestored condition with just 50,801 miles from new. The only flaw on the body was one small ding to the left front fender. The paint and interior were original/unrestored but in need of cosmetics. There were no signs of damage or rust and the car was complete. It had been sitting in a garage along with Mr. Shanks Gullwing for many years.
Although the car was purchased in Indiana it spent nearly all of its life in California. The car underwent a full “Concours” restoration when it arrived at our facility. Everything was done including rebuilding the engine and auxiliaries. It remains in the same mint condition as when it left our shop in 2008 where it was stored in a climate controlled environment and since the restoration was completed it has only been driven 53 miles. We are just now finishing a complete major service and detailing of the car. This immaculate example has never been shown since it’s restoration!
