The Tennent Family Gullwing

The market for good 300 SL Gullwings – instantly recognisable as classics from Detroit to Dubai – has weathered the recent slowdown in demand for collectable cars. An interesting colour and original body, engine and interior are pluses. A history file that includes work by one of the best, HK-Engineering, is another. Add to this a fascinating and romantic back-story, and ownership in one British family for 48 years and you have a stand-out car.
