393 Mercedes-Benz 350SL in metallic green with original box

180 GBP

One of the nicer Whizzwheels and this lasted for quite a while, with this being a later variation.

The metallic green colour is very difficult to find and seems quite rare. The wheels are a late type and quite attractive.

The brown interior does not work very well, however, with the blue tinted windows which make it look dirty when it actually isn’t.

This example is the first I have encountered and it is in pretty good condition. It has some wear but sits evenly and the doors and bonnet open and close nicely. The main fault is the worn chrome surrounds for the windows and there are some small chips here and there.

A valuable item that you will not easily find and which can only get more scarce. This comes with a superb original ‘Technocrats’ style box too!
