A selection of post-war Mercedes-Benz will be among the featured offerings at the 2014 Gooding & Company Scottsdale Auction, to be held January 17-18 at the Scottsdale Fashion Square in Scottsdale, Arizona. Among the 20 Mercedes-Benz examples spanning nearly four decades, notable consignments include a 300 SL Gullwing barn find that has never been offered for public sale and an award-winning 300 SL Roadster.
David Gooding, President and Founder, commented, “All of us at Gooding & Company are enamored with Mercedes-Benz because it is a marque that has built some of the world’s finest cars since early motoring right up to today. As a result, Mercedes-Benz is always in huge demand at our auctions, but of course finding great examples is always the challenge. We are particularly excited about the many long-term ownership Mercedes-Benz that we are presenting at Scottsdale.”
The restored 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing seen above is presented in a black over red color combination. The matching-numbers, low mileage example was retained by a single family for nearly 50 years. Concours ready, it carries a pre-sale estimate of $1,350,000 – $1,700,000.
