There is no shortage of overly-restored trailer queens in the world of blue-chip collector cars. That’s why Jay Leno’s 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing is one of the best ones we’ve ever seen.
If you’re unfamiliar, since his departure from late-night comedy Leno has been dutifully creating videos that feature his fantastic and enormous automobile and motorcycle collection on his YouTube Channel, Jay Leno’s Garage. His collection focuses on drive-able classics and exotics, that’s what makes the content so engaging.
With so many fantastic cars relegated to dust collection or standing in for savings banks, we love seeing cars in their natural habitat with a healthy amount of wear. Check out Leno’s video below for the full story on this all original Gullwing racing car.
