Mercedes Gullwing Barn Find

Somehow, one would think that most all 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SLs that've survived to the present day would all be restored and accounted for. This one, however was found in a barn, where it had languished for the last three decades. It seems to be of a piece, by and large, but as is the case with such vehicles, you might wanna be sure to give it the ol' once over twice. Need more details? Aston-Martin of New England has 'em.
