First introduced at the October 1951 Paris Auto Show, the Mercedes Benz 300S relied heavily on the technology of the Type 300. Offering the most power in a postwar design, with a fully independent rear suspension and a gracefully curved rear trunk lid, the Type 300S was initially available as a fixed roof Coupe and a Cabriolet, a third body style, the Roadster, would be specified. The 1955 Mercedes Benz 300S Cabriolet is often considered the epitome of this series, as it was the convertible version and the last model-year before the 300S would become the 300SC. If you’re the owner of a 1955 Mercedes 300S, you understand the appeal and are likely struggling with the decision to part with your classic. Opulent, meticulously engineered, beautifully crafted and powerful, the 300S Cabriolet offered something for even the most discerning automotive enthusiast of the day. From Hollywood’s elite to Wall Street’s top executives, the 300S would become an instant status symbol.

Selling a 1955 Mercedes Benz 300S Cabriolet requires understanding the overall condition of your classic and being able to relate that to today’s market and the demand for your particular auto. In total, only 203 units of the 300S would roll off the production line between 1951 and 1955; making these cars very rare. Buyer’s that are educated on the model will certainly want to have a thorough inspection of both the body and the mechanics, and most will require that the car be placed on a lift to inspect fully for rust. Unfortunately, rust plays a major role in the sale of these cars, and should not be overlooked.
