Almost every car enthusiast on Earth lusts after the classic Benz racecar from the 1950s, and John was no different. Its wide stance, long hood and gullwing doors make it an impressive vehicle that all add to its iconic demeanor and just a few reasons why it can sell for up to a million dollars when in pristine condition. “I’ve always loved the Gullwing, as most do,” John details. “It’s been a long time dream car for me. I even have a tattoo of a Gullwing on my arm that I got years ago, never thinking I’d actually ever get one.”

When the chance of a lifetime came up to acquire such a beauty, John didn’t think twice. A gentleman had offered him an original Gullwing body made from a mold of a version that had only 12,000 miles on it (and is currently sitting in a museum in Connecticut). John was obviously blown away at the offer. The story goes that the gentleman had sent the car to Germany in the late-’70s to have the factory restore it to original condition.

“The day he got it back, he took the whole car apart, and made a mold of the body and all of the original parts,” John explains. “He used to produce them in the ’80s. He made about 40 cars, and then stopped. But he kept all of his molds, of course. My brother and I met him by chance, and were able to acquire the last body that he had made. That’s when this project started, which was about six months before the 2018 SEMA Show.”
