Clark Gable's Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Headed to Auction

We love auctions; so many of the cars that cross the block maintain a vast and beautiful history while keeping in line with drop-dead gorgeous good looks. Set for January 13th at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale, is this one-of-a-kind 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe owned by none other than the man himself, Clark Gable. Gable -at one time or another- was one of the best and brightest of classic Hollywood, most noted for his role in the infamous Gone With the Wind. Off screen, Gable seemed to be a bit of an aficionado when it came to all things automotive (or female); and having an eye for the voluptuous after a long and successful career, Clark picked himself up a then-new 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe from Mercedes-Benz Hollywood for only $7,295. Now, passing hands from Gable in 1960 to two others before a restoration in 1989, the Gullwing is headed to the auction block come January 13th in Scottsdale. Source: Barrett-Jackson
