FOR SALE in our classifieds

The flagship of Mercedes. Governors, Diplomats, Dictators, Kings, Celebrities and Religious Leaders had access to these kind of vehicles.Introduced in August 1957, the 300d was the linear successor to the 300c, with a longer wheelbase, fuel injection, and unique hardtop configuration transforming it into a pillarless phaeton. The additional 4 inches of wheelbase provided greater rear legroom and established the car as a true limousine in direct competition with the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. Removable rear quarter lights allowed an unobstructed view in and out from the front vent window on back, much valued in the models popular role as parade car. Employing a slightly detuned version of the 300 SL sports cars Bosch fuel injected engine, the 300d produced 180 PS (130 kW; 180 hp) at 5500 rpm.[4] Automatic transmission was standard. Power brakes, power steering, and Artic-Kar air-conditioning were added as an options.[4] A total of 3,077 300d models (priced at DM 27,000) was produced through March 1962, along with 65 special-order 300d-based Cabriolet Ds (DM 35,500). Our car is a pure example that now needs some attention. The original cloth interior, and the color will need to be taken care of. No rust and for sure this car is in no need of an extensive restoration. Priced wisely at 35.000Eur or near offer. The car is in Greece, and has historic Vehicle registration.
