Last Call- You are the Tubes Beneath my Wings Edition


A typical goal of the average teenaged boy is to see a girl with her clothes off. Perhaps more exciting to the not so typical teen, and most likely to most of us adults, is the view of a Mercedes Benz 300sl Gullwing, showing off its bare bones. It just doesn’t get much more Sport Leicht than this.

  1. Wow, it reminds me of the 300SL Gullwing restoration carried out a few years ago at Peter Klutt's shop on Dream Car Garage. What an amazing car, from the body and frame, to the direct injected six, to the fitted luggage.

    1. Looks like one user bought both cars. I highly doubt that he paid anywhere near $60k for that pile. I imagine that since the previous owner was seeking a trade, that's likely what happened… Maybe a nice Porsche for both cars??

    1. grumble grumble "stupid ride height" grumble grumble "probably on airbags" grumble grumble "just for looks" grumble grumble "satin black" grumble grumble "stance" etc.
      Get off my lawn.
      Awesome car.

  2. Is it wrong to want to hoon this almost as-is, with only a sheet-metal floorpan and some bomber seats added? I mean, I like the original Gullwing bodywork, but I'm seeing this one as a retro version of the Ariel Atom.
