Natalie Wood - Natalie Wood's Sports Car To Be Auctioned
Late movie legend Natalie Wood's Mercedes Roadster is set to hit the auction block in Los Angeles later this summer (12).
The sporty 250sl Roadster/Coupe Automatic will be among the items going under the hammer at a Profiles in History sale in July (12).
Wood purchased the car in 1967 and the vehicle comes with its original metal Protect-O-Plate 'Certicard' issued from Mercedes-Benz reading in part: "Natalie Wood, 191 N. Bentley Ave., Los Angeles, California, 5/9/67, 250sl, 113043-12-000551."
Painted white and upholstered in black vinyl, the car has been restored to near perfect factory condition. The 250sl is a rare auction item as it was only built in 1967 and 1968.
It is expected to fetch up to $50,000 (£31,250) at the sale.
