1957 Mercedes-Benz Gullwing To Be Auctioned Off at Fort Lauderdale Convention Center
RM Auctions has revealed a 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing from its owner of 50 years to be offered at the company's annual Fort Lauderdale auction, 6-7 April (Estimate. $1,000,000 - $1,300,000).
The 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing offered from 50 years of ownership by a Jackson, Michigan resident at RM Auctions' 16th annual Fort Lauderdale collector car sale, 6-7 April at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center. One of the most original Gullwings on the planet, 100 percent of hammer proceeds from the car's sale will be donated by the current owner to the reconstruction of his local Jackson, Michigan YMCA. Complete details at www.rmsothebys.com

The Gullwing is the fifth from last example ever produced, and as such carries the most desirable late-production features. When the car's second owner, Arthur L.W. True—a well-known West Coast sportsman—passed away in 1967, his family donated several of his automobiles to the Henry Ford Museum. The Museum decided the Gullwing was outside their needs, and it was soon sold to the current proprietor, a resident of Jackson, Michigan.

While the owner enjoyed his 300 SL, he lacked a place to maintain it, and so for the last four decades it has been on display at the ACD Automobile Museum in Auburn, Indiana. The Gullwing has survived in exceptionally original condition, retaining much of its factory paint and its original leather interior. Amazingly, all 36,375 miles currently recorded were added prior to 1968.

The current owner has generously chosen to donate 100 percent of hammer proceeds from the sale to the Jackson, Michigan YMCA, as a gift towards the construction of a state-of-the-art new building for the community organization.

The Gullwing joins an alloy-block, 36,600-mile 1962 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster in Fort Lauderdale, also offered from four decades of ownership by a Michigan enthusiast.

Celebrated as South Florida's premier collector car auction, the 16th annual Fort Lauderdale sale will feature 350 quality collector cars and a selection of memorabilia at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center. For complete event details, as well as the digital preview catalogue, visit www.rmsothebys.com or call RM Auctions at +1 519 352 4575
