Known History

Chassis: 7500146. Engine: 7500172. Body: 7500071. This car was built in 1957 for Erwin Goldschmitt, a friend of the Mercedes Benz factory, who lived in N.J. It was one of the most heavily optioned cars we'd ever seen. It has Rudge knock off wheels with polished rims, Hi-compression 9.4 engine, hardtop, Euro headlights, Becker Mexico radio, luggage, and seat belts. It was Paul Russell's personal car until a good customer persuaded him to sell it. It has had an every last nut and bolt, body off restoration, and has been kept in concours condition in 2 private collections since then. Best in Class at the 2009 Hilton Head Island Concours D'Elegance.
