Natalie Wood’s Mercedes Roadster Up For Auction at Profiles in History

Profiles in History, is proud to announce that Natalie Wood’s Mercedes 250SL Roadster/Coupé Automatic will be on the block at their July Hollywood mega auction.  This Mercedes was purchased new in 1967 and owned by the late Hollywood legend Natalie Wood. Ms. Wood bought the car at Simonson-Schactmeyer Mercedes-Benz – Studebaker in Santa Monica, California and the vehicle comes with its original metal Protect-O-Plate “Certicard” issued from Mercedes-Benz reading (in part):

“Natalie Wood, 191 N. Bentley Ave., Los Angeles, California, 5/9/67, 250SL, 113043-12-000551.” The odometer reads “06511” indicating the gauge has rolled over (106,511 total miles on the car). Painted white and upholstered in black vinyl, the car has been restored to near perfect factory condition. This distinguished 250SL has a very desirable option package that includes ZF four-speed automatic transmission with floor shift, air conditioning, power steering, removable hardtop and a hidden soft top. Also comes with copies of Natalie Wood’s 1968 California Registration and window sticker. The car is quite advanced for its era, having four-wheel disc brakes, all-independent suspension, and a 2.5-liter sohc, mechanically fuel injected, six-cylinder engine.

The 250SL is the rarest of the W113-bodied cars, having been built only in 1967 and 1968. Its predecessor, the 230SL, was vastly improved upon in this model, while the last of the W113 cars, the 280SL, had a slightly larger engine and improved steering. This was one of the most popular cars that Mercedes-Benz ever built, and is extremely popular with collectors. The fantastic Natalie Wood lineage makes this 250SL all the more desirable. It is expected to fetch $30,000 – $50,000.
