With the Mercedes Benz 300SC Roadster, the German automaker set out to prove they would dominate quality automotive engineering in a time where resources were scarce and where such giants as Rolls Royce and Bentley were dominating the luxury field. The job wasn’t easy, but this car set the benchmark for all brands to follow. Propelled by a fuel injected, dry sump lubricated, inline-six engine that was capable of delivering 220 horsepower, the 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SC Roadster would bring technology unmatched by any car of the time. With only 200 models ever produced, 49 of them being Roadsters, it is easy to understand why the 300SC commanded a price tag similar to that of a small home. Despite the price tag, some of the world’s most affluent buyers couldn’t wait to get their hand on one. If you’re thinking about selling your 1957 Mercedes 300SC Roadster, providing documentation on past ownership history – particularly if someone notable owned it – can increase the value of your classic. Similarly, if your model has been restored over the years, records on the restoration are also keys to boosting value. These are some of the Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team has learned over their years of buying and selling Mercedes classics.


1957 Mercedes Benz 300SC Roadster Seller’s Guide

In addition to having records of ownership and restoration, you’ll need to have current photographs ready for buyers that will be reaching out to you from around the world. If you’re selling a model that is in fair condition or that is in need of complete restoration, you’ll also want to identify the parts and components that are missing from the car, or vice versa. Parts for the 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SC Roadster, and other 300SC models, are difficult and expensive to find – particularly original chrome pieces. Having a car that has its chrome intact can also be valuable, no matter its condition. When you’re ready to discuss the value of your classic Mercedes or would like to learn more about these Seller’s Tips, the Alex Manos team is always available.
