  • This Gullwing had three Mexican owners (documented by Mercedes Benz) until it was purchased by another well-known Mexican collector (also documented) in 1986.

At this time it was desided by its new owner to change the color combination to its current and incredibly attractive combination of Anthracite Grey Metallic (DB172) with Cream (1060). Mr. Urquiza is well known as the caretaker of many, if not all of the 300 SLs and who has been awarded Best of Show at various Gullwing Group conventions which are quite demanding, competing against only the best 300 SLs.
