Selling a 1952 Mercedes Benz 300
Between April 1951 and July 1955, only 262 units of the 1952 Mercedes Benz 300 and 300B models would roll out of the factory in Germany. Part of a series that would last more than a decade, the Mercedes 300 or “Adenauer” quickly became synonymous with luxury, prestige, comfort and unparalleled performance. Meant to rival the popular Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, the Mercedes 300 line was not for the average car buyer. Well-heeled buyers from across the globe were drawn to the car as a symbol of status and class. The name “Adenauer” actually comes from Konrad Adenauer, the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany. During his tenure in office – from 1949 to 1963 – he owned more than six custom convertible and hardtop versions of the 300. While Mercedes did not recognize the nickname, it has stuck with the car throughout the years. Even today, the 1952 300 is highly sought-after as a collector car for the same reasons buyers clamored to have it in the early 1950s.
1952 Mercedes Benz 300 Seller’s Tips
If you’re considering the sale of your own Mercedes 300, here are a few Seller’s Tips from the classic car experts at AlexManos.com. First, 1952 Mercedes Benz 300 models can range in value dramatically depending on their condition and the options that they have. Some of the most popular options during the time were Becker radios, VHF Mobile telephones, writing desks, curtains, sunroofs and driving partitions. Be sure to note all options when selling your classic. Additionally, if your 300 is a complete model, having it inspected by a third party prior to the sale can make the process move quicker. Lastly, if you’re selling an unfinished restoration project or one that will become a restoration project, having a list of any extra components or parts that come with the car is ideal. This will help establish the value of the classic.
