300 SL Roadster with original Rudge wheels ex-factory


This Roadster was produced in 1957 and one of only around 20 cars ever equipped and originally delivered with the very rare Rudge Wheels to Cuba. Short time later the political system changed and it was nearly impossible to export a car out of Cuba. Sometimes you need luck or you have to know the right persons. The famous race driver Colin Crabbe had both and could import the car to the UK in the 90s. In the 2000s the car was fully restored, it has matching numbers and is in a good driving condition.


Rudge wheels, battery main switch, Becker radio.
