It is also historically significant as one of Mercedes-Benz's first all-new designs of the post-war era, debuting at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1951. The 300's arrival re-established Mercedes-Benz in the front rank of prestige car manufacturers. Although Mercedes would adopt unitary chassis/body construction for its lower and mid-priced cars as the 1950s progressed, the retention of a traditional separate frame for the 300 enabled a wide variety of coach built body types to be offered. Custom built by Mercedes' most experienced craftsmen, the 300 was luxuriously appointed and trimmed with materials of the highest quality. Fast and elegant, it was one of the few contemporary vehicles capable of carrying 6 passengers in comfort at sustained high speeds. This 300S Coupe was delivered new on April 7th,1955. The new top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz was equipped for and delivered in the home market, and arrived at the Mannheim dealership looking identical to how we see it today, in a subtle classy black with a tastefully appointed interior in red leather, and fitted with a Becker Mexico radio. Upon close inspection, this well-preserved 300S Coupe displays a wonderful patina and the feel a good, genuine example, never left to neglect. Mercedes-Benz contemporary marketing described these Coupes as being 'for connoisseurs with individual taste' - a sentiment which surely holds true to this day 😎 _______________________________________________ #auto #instacar #carporn #autoporn #design #automotive #vintage #drive #classic #classiccar #collect #icon #classiccarchasers #carphotography #forsale #drivetastefully #mercedes #benz #luxury #elegance #300s #german #leather #patina #wood #timeless #iconic
