For Sale: Limited Edition CMC Mercedes 300 SL "Gullwing" (Le Mans) Model.

This is not the more common Panamericana model that can be easily found on the 'net.

Please see this ad for photographs:CMC Diecast Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing

This is car #0114 /1500.

Asking $1000 local, $1025 to ship insured to USA. May ship worldwide.

It is in very nice shape, as it has been kept in its box. It could use a light cleaning and some automotive wax if put out for display.
The car is missing the tiny chrome passenger wiper blade, and I was not able to locate it during a cursory glance into the box, so it is presumed missing. See last photograph.

Excerpt from the accompanying booklet:

"Since the beginning of the 24-hours-race of Le Mansin 1923, the event has annually provided a great deal of excitement and tragedy when either dooming the competitors to failure or crowing them with success. . .

Saturday, May 26th, 1952: 28drivers sprint across the course to their cars, after a half a minute the field has already reached the Dunlop arch and is heading for Tertre Rouge. After 24 hours, during which positions kept changing and many competitors had to give up, the Mercedes 300Sl with its drivers LANG and RIESS had covered 3733.8 km at an average speed of 155.6 kmph. . .

This was a new record in the history of Le Mans.
