Story and History

1971 Mercedes Benz 300SEL 6.3 LHD
New interior, repainted & mechanically sorted

When you look for a 6.3 Mercedes 300SEL, as well as the normal structural issue associated with old classics, you need to ensure mechanically everything is tip top for overhauling things can be very expensive

Hence our example is one you can rely upon - all mechanical works were checked over by our friends, and Mercedes Classic experts, Roger Edwards Motors and since we have been running her we have being enjoying driving a 6.3 just as in period

In fact we took her to Mercedes Benz of Brooklands to have an inspection prior to using her for Goodwood Revival in September last year, and as shown on the pictures, nearly every box was ticked in Green - the Hazard warning switch was picked up as u/s, which we repaired immediately we were back in our garage

As in the past, this beauty is endowed with hearty acceleration, ice cold air conditioning, supple suspension and in need all of the trade marks and fittings of a luxury saloon

Originally supplied to the West Coast of America, where she was not ravaged by the elements so her underside and structure is super original

The title document, from Malibou, CA suggests the mileage in 2015 was correct, being 51.015 miles, since when only another 835 miles have been travelled

She had a full repaint and interior retrim, including the veneers before repatriation to Europe 5 years ago, at which point after registration her in the UK, she had only 1 registered keeper

In fact when she arrived in the UK the Mercedes Enthusiast Magazine featured her in a 6 page article, written by one of the best Classic Car journalists, Martin Buckley, who luxuriated in this fast & ostentatious saloon - in fact, as he says, "to most people, the 6.3 was a car so ridiculously expensive it just was not on their radar"

Lucky for us, then, we have such a good example on offer at this time, at a price which shouldn't upset too much
