1954 Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing

After years of haggling, the second owner finally had his car. After being used as a family transport, grocery getter and all around fun for fifty years, it was decided to restore the car with Sports Leicht Restorations.

The restoration, full frame off, which started in 2007 was completed in 2008, just in time for the Glennmoor Gathering where it received a second place. All subsequent shows have garnered Best in Class.

The car resides in Canton Ohio and is still winning shows

As It Arrived

The car was heavily worn but original, rust in the usual places and only two tubes had to be replaced. Every nut and bolt, every clamp and component was rebuilt or replaced, the interior was changed from tartan cloth/vinyl to optional leather and new complementing leather suitcases were made.
