Photo: The high sills of the 300 SL’s tube frame chassis ruled out conventional doors on the Coupe, necessitating the upward-opening kind and giving it its nickname, Gullwing. But no roof on the Roadster meant no gullwing doors, so modifications were made to fit the regular sort, while the side sills were lowered for the sake of easing entry and exit. After all, high side sills are one thing when leaping in and out of a car in a racing suit, quite another thing in one made of gabardine.  Darin Schnabel ©2011 Courtesy of RM Auctions
