304 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster

55 GBP

A really nice example of this model. It is easy to get confused with these but if you remember that 304 is only either yellow or yellow with a red top and the silver ones are all 304S then you’ll make a good start.

The suspension on the 304S isn’t obvious, not being like normal models and still having a tin base. So many people advertise silver ones as 304.

The 304 never had an interior either so it is quite an uninteresting car compared to the real thing but does look good on display. Although its sister 303 sold well in the short time it was out in this form, this hard top was nothing like as popular, only just scraping over the 150,000 mark and prices are not cheap.
