A top of the line luxury automobile often reserved for the rich and famous, during its era the Mercedes Type 300 Adenauer was renowned for being a “big car for big occasions.” In fact, the 1955 Mercedes Benz 300B was an incredibly massive automobile for its time by both European and American standards. Introduced together with its smaller counterpart, the Mercedes 220, at the 1951 Frankfurt Auto Show, the Type 300 line created quite a stir among the public and the press. At the time, the Mercedes 300B sold for a base price of $6,500, which was quite high for even a luxury model. For example, even an American Cadillac with top of the line options during the same year was priced at approximately $5,900. However, this did not cause well-heeled buyers to shy away. Famous owners include Frank Lloyd Wright and Anthony Quinn, to name just a few.


1955 Mercedes Benz 300B Seller’s Tips

Throughout the decade long production run, even with the high price tag, Mercedes was able to sell 11,430 of the Mercedes 300 line, only 707 of which were cabriolets. Collectors and automotive industry professionals will tell you that although these numbers did not live up to the sales expectations of the release, the Mercedes 300B and its sister models helped to re-establish the image of Mercedes as a leading manufacturer of exceptional luxury automobiles after World War II. If you’re thinking about selling your 1955 Mercedes Benz 300B and are looking for quality Seller’s Tips, you’ve come to the right place. Whether your car is a pristine quality showroom car or an unfinished restoration project, buyers will want to ensure chassis and engine numbers match. Additionally, particularly if you are selling one of the renowned cabriolet models, buyers will want to ensure the car is an original and that it has not been cut down from a sedan. Identifying chassis information and providing documentation regarding the history of the car can eliminate these concerns.
