Mercedes Benz's redesigned 300 models of the early 1960s, were know internally within the company as the W112. Featuring fresh, new slab-sided styling, as well as an all-aluminum, overhead-cam six cylinder engine, that developed 185hp, four wheel drum brakes, advanced and comfortable pneumatic suspension. A four speed manual gearbox could still be had as an option, but seldom ordered, making this a rare and desirable option. Selling at nearly twice the price of the lower-level 200 series, this was the most expensive “standard” Mercedes of the early 1960s, outside of the custom-built 600 models and it was a regular sight at the world's most exclusive locales.
This example has a beautiful White exterior with a Bamboo interior and a black cloth top. This car comes with power brakes and steering, Frigiking air conditioning, Becker AM/FM Europa 11 Stereo. The car has recently gone through a major restoration which included an engine out, total body respray and some underside metal work. The car comes with an interesting back ground. It was featured in the movie “And So It Goes”, starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton and a copy of the DVD is included with the car.
This car is a proven family favorite and is now ready to be enjoyed by a new owner for many miles of enjoyable cruising.
