According to Wikipedia the gull wing was only made in model years 1955 through 1957??? They claim the rest of them were roadsters. Regardless, the $11,000 price tag was stratospheric for the day.
I inserted the gull wing because it was my understanding they were sold through the end of the 300SL run in 1963.
My mistake, not my fathers. I will correct the post.
