As the owner of a 1952 Mercedes Benz 300S Cabriolet, you understand the classiness and overstated luxury that these unparalleled cars exude both while parked and moving. Available as a 2+2 Coupe, a Cabriolet or a Roadster, the Type 300 was reserved for only the most affluent and well-heeled buyers of the era. Popular owners included many entertainers, heads of state, government officials and, most notably, Konrad Adenauer, the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany. Owning more than six throughout his tenure, the Type 300 would earn the nickname “Adenauer.” A very limited edition release, the 300S Cabriolet would see only 203 units come off the production floor between September 1951 and August 1955. Because these are such highly sought-after automobiles, potential buyers will want to verify the authenticity of your Type 300S. This can be accomplished by verifying the chassis number, which should be 188.010 for the Cabriolet models.
