Video duration:  4:53  Publisher: Hagerty

Cars are built to be driven, even when its an exorbitantly expensive 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing. That goes double for something based on a race car, but you don’t have to remind owner Craig Eckberg of that. Craig has owned the car for 18 years and has put over 75,000 miles on the odometer through a combination of joy rides, track days, and rallies like the Colorado Grand, Copperstate 1000, and California Mille. So sit back, relax, and enjoy as Craig gives us the full breakdown on this iconic German sports car.
