W198 - a matching pair of 300SLs

Hi folks, I'm new to forums - but got some great feedback from a Maserati one a few months back. I'd like to share the end result of a two year project here at the collection I manage. We've restored a 'rally' Gullwing and a Roadster - in matching colours, Silver-Blue with Red interior. The restoration facility is just rolling out the Roadster - and I'll have photos of that soon (and some shots of the cars together).

For now, here are a few of the Gullwing - and a link to the listing where you can find some more information and photographs.

1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing

Cheers & enjoy the photographs - keep an eye out for more,

Outstanding car! Can't wait to see the roadster. I like the looks of the roadster over the gullwing. Where in BC are you located?

^ A lot more pleasant to drive as well.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
