300SL Gullwing...$725K..market still strong

These cars continue to amaze despite ample supply. Demand is even stronger it seems.

Relatively speaking of course. Considering how desirable these cars are the fact is that there are always a few available through dealers and most major auctions seems to have at least one sold. In addition to the one I posted earlier, here are two SL's currently available:

The Classic Center in Irvine has a Roadster for Sale, and a Gullwing in restoration.

This past weekend a gullwing reallized $869K at the Gooding auction and either Gooding or RM had a 300 SL roadster reallize $990K. Among other things, MB racing success in the early 50s was celebrated at teh Amelia Island Concours this year, making it the ideal venue for these sales. A Pagoda went for $48K, which is really not that out of the ballpark for those cars these days, and I think prices were pretty strong overall across the board with "real world" cars like an MG TC at $48K and a Healey 3000 at $99K, for example.

Personally, I prefer the 300SL roadster to the gullwing but they are both incredible cars.
