The flagship Mercedes in the 50’s was the full size 300 series. During its 10 year production run, there were two variations of Mercedes, the W186 and the W189. The second version of the 300 series went in to production from 1957 – 1962 and often referred to as the “Adenauer” named after the respected former German Chancellor Conrad Adenauer. Upon special request, some 65 open variants of the stately 300d were produced. The exclusive 300d Cabriolet with its renaissance styling makes it one of the most sought after of all 300s. The 300 was the status symbol of success and accomplishment. Royalty, dignitaries, movie stars and even the Pope have been known the own the mighty 300 Mercedes or be chauffer driven in one.

The original color of this luxury tourer was Havana Brown, and somewhere down the line, it was meticulously repainted to a factory dark green. The interior is finished in fine leather with contrasting piping and beautiful exotic wood trim. Every ounce of chrome trim sparkles like jewelry. It has factory options like power windows, power steering, power brakes and automatic transmission and not to mention rare factory air conditioning. This technologically advanced 300 uses a 3 litre fuel injected inline 6-cylinder motor that yields a modest 180 hp easily moving this 4500 lb. cabriolet down the road.  The wide white wall tires mounted on the correct chrome-plated wheels are the finishing touch that sets off this 50’s European classic. The documentation included with this Mercedes is extensive and ranges from build sheet information, owner’s manual, and letter of authenticity from well-known restorer Paul Russell & Company, to current service invoices. This exquisite Mercedes 300 just recently won the “Excellence Award” in its class at the prestigious Mar a Lago Concours d’Elegance 2017. This car’s outstanding quality is matched only by its majestic appearance and affords its new owner complete exclusivity.
