303S - Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Open Roadster


The ‘S’ on the 303S Corgi catalogue number denotes a model with miniature working suspension dating from between 1961 and 1963. It was initially released by Corgi in 1958 (as 303), minus this feature. In 1963 it was graced with a driver figure – as is the case with this Corgi Model Club version.

Finally, in 1964, some examples featured spoked wheels. Interestingly, the ‘S’ prefix was dropped between 1964 and 1965 for models with and without the spoked wheels. During its production life the model was produced in white, off-white, various shades of blue and in a plated metal finish. The interior was either blue, yellow or brown. This 303S replicates the classic variant with a striking bonnet racing stripe.
