Louman’s 1936 Mercedes 500K is one of those fairytale barn-find stories. A Spezial model, one of just 25, it was first purchased in the UK and spent 32 years stored behind a butcher’s shop in Walsall.

May 7th, 2017 by admin

The butcher’s car’ became famous in the 1980s, after it had been found behind a butcher’s shop in Walsall in north-western Birmingham.

Arthur Dawson, the butcher, bought the car from his uncle, drove it for 2 years and then put it in storage for 32 years. He didn’t want to sell his roadster and several friends of his had been trying to buy the car for years without success.

After numerous failed attempts the first flipper called an antiques-dealer for help. The dealer finally convinced Dawson to sell and he made a handsome profit!

It was taken by the first flipper to a Christie’s auction at Beaulieu in 1988 where the unrestored roadster – which was complete and in its original barn find condition – sold for an astonishing record amount of 1,585,000 Pound sterling (3.6 million euros)! At the time it was the most expensive Mercedes–Benz that had ever been auctioned and the second most valuable car in the world.

Friedrich Geiger drew the lines of the Spezial Roadster, and in the fifties Geiger designed the legendary 300SL ‘Gullwing’.

As far as is known ‘the butcher’s car’ is one of only 2 right-hand drive ‘Spezial Roadsters’. The only other right-hand drive ‘Spezial Roadster’ was at the 1935 Olympia Motor Show in London.

Swedish collector Hans Thulin was the 2nd flipper, and had it restored in Germany, then Thulin sold the roadster to a Japanese flipper who appreciated the value by showing the ‘Spezial Roadster’ at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 1994 and winning best in class,

The widow won’t let it go onto a new home ( and new goofball ) while it reminds her of her goofball when they were young. I kinda dig that. Still, I’d like to be the 1st on the list when she passes and the executor of the estate wants it to go to a good home, a ‘32 5 window

Sitting in a dusty barn in Kern County Illinois for over 40 years, her husband built it while in High School and college.

all the pieces were here and there all over the farm, ever since the slingshot was retired in 1964. It was gathered up and put back together for this photo shoot when it sold recently

the front wheels were mounted on 1942 Harley-Davidson military motorcycle wheels, and they are still on that dragster… that is way cool.

the chassis was outside, and a tree had grown through it, the block was on one side of the barn, and the heads were on the other. The Weiand Drag Star intake manifold and six Stromberg 97 carburetors were inside his garage since 1964

long before rat rodders started using conrods to hang steering columns, this one was used as a motor mount on this 150 mph A/Gas dragster that ran 60% nitro. It’s from a Ford flathead for the 1.599-inch rod journal. The main framerail was 1-5/8-inch round tubing.
