Restoration Receipts and Documentation
Purchased new in 1961 by Peter J. Matheu of San Jose, California, this 300SL was driven regularly for the next fourteen years, including at his own wedding. After enjoying the car for some time, he decided to park it in his garage, where it remained undisturbed until 2005. Thomas Taffet of Chatsworth, California, became the 2nd owner, and upon taking delivery, he sent the car to Rudi and Company, to begin its show quality restoration. Upon completion and prior to selling to the current owner, the car was sent to the Mercedes Classic Center in Irvine, California to be inspected and documented.
This disc brake 300SL has just 621 miles since the restoration was completed, and the condition of car is simply exceptional. Included in the sale, is a binder of the history and owner correspondence, Mercedes Classic Center inspection report, factory tool roll, a Mercedes-Benz 300SL jack and literature.
