Don't miss this exceptional chance to own a piece of automotive and model-making history with this limited edition 1:12 scale model Mercedes Benz 300SL, brought to life by the renowned Franklin Mint. Only 1,000 of these exquisite models were ever produced, and this particular piece, numbered 635, represents a unique blend of craftsmanship and iconic design.

Constructed from solid pewter and weighing approximately 15 pounds, this model captures the essence of the legendary 300SL with remarkable attention to detail. From the dashboard gauges and switchgear to the chromed door handles and comprehensive engine bay, each feature is meticulously replicated to honor the original vehicle's legacy. The seats, upholstered in genuine leather, and the rubber tires add a touch of realism and luxury, while spring-loaded doors, a forward-opening hood, and a plastic windscreen further enhance its authenticity.

This collector's item comes mounted on a wood base, complete with a numbered plaque to certify its place in this limited production run. Despite being in excellent condition and housed in the original velvet-lined box, it's important to note that the plate indicating the car's number (635/1000) is missing. However, the model is accompanied by an owner’s manual, a hood opening tool, and a Certificate of Authenticity, ensuring its provenance and collectibility.
