Acquiring a 300 SL Gullwing was a bucket list item for a good client of R&R Automotive Restorations. Specifically looking for something original, the customer had zero interest in a restored car, which is sometimes the equivalent of finding a needle in a haystack and the needle doesn’t exist. They ended up finding a 1955 300 SL Gullwing with just 19,000 original miles on its 3.0L straight six-cylinder engine. See what went into preserving this iconic sports car.
