At The Status Life, the stunning 1963 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster is up for grabs as a private lot from RM Sotheby’s, with a price tag of £1.5-2M. This timeless vehicle has a unique history, having been under single-family ownership and driven for 380,000 miles since new. It is a late production model with disc brakes and an alloy block, making it a sought-after gem for car enthusiasts.

Originally acquired by Mercedes-Benz expert Ron Cushway, this 300 SL Roadster has roamed across Europe, creating a captivating backstory full of adventures. Today, it is in the care of his son, Martin Cushway, a renowned 300 SL specialist in the UK, ensuring its maintenance and preservation for years to come.

What sets this particular 1963 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster apart are the clever upgrades that have been made to enhance its performance and drivability, such as the addition of ABS brakes, all of which can be reversed if desired. RM Sotheby’s offering includes not just the car itself but also a treasure trove of original parts, accessories, documents, and vintage photos, adding to its authenticity and appeal for classic car enthusiasts.

The history of this vehicle is meticulously documented by the Cushway family, with a collection of period materials that include original owner’s manuals, service records, and workshop guides. The car comes with a range of spare parts, including the original hardtop, tool kit, gearbox, and cylinder head. For more information or a detailed list of accompanying accessories, interested buyers can reach out to an RM Sotheby’s specialist.
