Evaluation: Represented as the original engine (located and reinstalled in its most recent restoration). Electronic assist power steering added. Excellent color change paint, upholstery, chrome, and top. The chassis and engine compartment are restored like new without going too far. A beautiful 300SL meticulously restored in unusual and attractive colors in the last five years, looks like five months.
Bottom Line: Reported sold by Gooding at Amelia in 2014 for $946,000 before the original engine was found and installed during the most recent round of restoration. There was much online bidding interest but the final result was modest considering the original engine, attractive color, and pristine condition. It is a good value for the new owner.
