During the Mercedes Benz 300’s eleven-year production run, the car underwent several specification changes. In 1954, the Mercedes 300 was succeeded by the 300B. Both the 1954 and 1955 Mercedes Benz 300B Cabriolet models externally had no changes; however, they had 10 more horsepower, larger brakes, higher compression and dawned Solex carburetors. Another specification change happened shortly after, and in 1955 the 300C would be introduced. In total, during the 1955 model-year, 59 units of the 300 and 300B were produced. These low production numbers, when paired the exceptional beauty and undeniable luxury of the Type 300, make it easy to understand why these cars are so desirable. Whether it was the sleek lines and curvature of the 300 that attracted you or the desire to own a piece of Mercedes Benz history, as an owner of a 1955 Mercedes Benz 300B Cabriolet, you can understand the appeal of these cars.


1955 Mercedes Benz 300B Cabriolet Seller’s Guide

When buyers are starting their search for a 1955 Mercedes Benz 300B Cabriolet, they often start with the condition of the classic. While good to mint condition models are favored because of the extremely high cost of restoration, there are still buyers out there looking for Type 300 models of all types. Many buyers will even consider unfinished restoration projects! The best thing you can do is to be honest with the overall condition of your classic. Be sure to mention any areas of rust or missing chrome, and be sure to discuss the overall mechanics of the car. Buyers also love a good story. Does your car have an interesting history? Maybe a famous owner? Always try to have documentation regarding ownership history, maintenance, restoration or anything else that could be used to increase the value of your 1955 Mercedes 300B.
