Description
1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing: The 5th from last 300SL Coupe Ever Produced This 1957 300SL Gullwing Chassis number 7500071 was the fifth from last 300 SL coupe produced and, as such, has all of the most desirable late-production features, as well as the optional Becker Mexico radio and full leather upholstery. It was originally delivered to 28-year-old Donald H. Bueermann of Portland, Oregon, later passing to fellow Portland resident Howard Hanna, as recorded in Eric LeMoines 300 SL Register. In the early 1960s, it moved to Washington State in the ownership of young Arthur L.W. True, heir to a Spokane oil fortune and a well-known figure in Pacific Northwest sports car circles.

His family subsequently donated several of his outstanding automobiles, including the 250 TR and this Gullwing, to the Henry Ford Museum of Dearborn, Michigan. The museum found the Gullwing outside their needs and, within a year, had sold it to the last owner, a resident of Jackson, Michigan.While the owner enjoyed his 300 SL, he never had a place to maintain it in the conditions it demanded, and so it has spent its life since 1968 on display in two different museums. For the past few decades, its home has been the Special Interest Gallery of the ACD Automobile Museum in Auburn, Indiana, where it has been viewed by many hundreds of thousands of visitors to that legendary facility. In fact, for many Midwestern 300 SL enthusiasts, it was their very first in-person view of a Gullwing.Such superb surroundings have helped the 300 SL survive in exceptionally original condition. Much of the Fire Engine Red finish (534) has been redone, as-necessary over passing years, but is still present on the factory hubcaps. The original Cream upholstery was quickly surface-dyed black decades ago, but remains intact, and there are
