It's said that just over 5,000 examples of the 250 SL were originally produced, with only about 1,750 imported to the US. The 250 retained the stiffer suspension and sportier feel of the early SLs, but provided improved agility, engine and 4 wheel disc brakes.
This particular car was sold new locally by Turnbull & Gamble Mercedes-Benz to Dr. Daniel M. Tolmach of Oxnard, California on November 20, 1967. The vehicle remained in Tolmach's care for at least the succeeding quarter century, while always retaining residency along the Southern California coast. The car displays stunning correct livery, body panels, numbers-matching engine and options as specified on its factory Mercedes-Benz DataCard. The accompanying original service booklet records continuous dealer services until 15,000 miles ago. Recent servings thereafter, including its most current Fall 2017 tune-up and inspection by renowned Mercedes-Benz SL specialists are chronicled in the car's dossier of records. This unrestored and uniquely optioned example is complete with its original metal warranty plate, manuals in their proper pouch, tool roll, jack, and emergency accessories. Offering the best of German engineering coupled with the glamour of 1960s motoring, this 250 SL is a fantastic representation of an iconic, well-rounded and highly usable design – now available for worldwide purchase and delivery from our Houston, Texas showroom.
