Experiencing several variation changes throughout its eleven-year lifespan, the Mercedes Benz 300 was yet again updated in 1955 to the 300C. Debuted at the 1955 Frankfurt Auto Show, this would be the third-generation of the Type 300 and would be available as both a 300C Cabriolet and 300C Sedan. On the exterior, the only visible difference was the larger rear window and the increase in tire and rim size, yet under the hood a new automatic Borg-Warner DG 150M transmission with three gears would be added. The other major advancement for the 300C would be the change from a dual-joint swing axle to a single-joint, which ensured better driving and handling. With only three units of the 1955 Mercedes Benz 300C ever made, finding a 300C from this exact model-year can be quite the challenge. If you’re the owner of a 1955 Mercedes 300C Cabriolet, you can be certain there is demand for your car in today’s classic car market. The Alex Manos team can help you assess that demand and place a value on your cherished classic.
