For Sale: 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300 in Laguna Beach, California

Vehicle Description

This Mercedes Benz 300C has been the favorite of a local owner for years who is now reducing his collection. The car has been professionally maintained and features modern dual carburetors with electric choke which make starting the Benz easy every time. The original carburetors are included with the car along with assorted miscellaneous parts.

This is what Wikipedia says about these cars:
"Referred to as a "Type 300", the W186 was equal in features and price but superior in performance to the rival Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud2 #fn2 and Bentley S1. Favored by statesmen and business leaders, it offered options such as a glass partition, VHF mobile telephone, and dictation machine.

The W186 is often identified as an Adenauer after Konrad Adenauer, the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany), who employed six custom cabriolet, hardtop saloon, and landaulet versions of the W186 and its successor W189 during his 1949-1963 tenure.

Technologically advanced,3 #fn3 the 300 was regarded as a "driver's" car, sharing numerous design innovations and mechanical components with the iconic Mercedes-Benz 300 SL "Gullwing", including engine, suspension, and chassis.

This stunning example has been very well maintained by a local collector and some recent work includes: Interior wood refurbished in 2016
Gas tank reconditioned in 2017 and replaced fuel sending unit
Engine rebuild in 2018
Radiator cleaned/rebuilt and fans replaced 2018
New battery 2018
Rebuilt original carburetors in 2018. Replaced them with the after market ones in the same year for smoother ride.
Replace front wheel cylinder 2020
2 new tires 2021

The Mercedes Benz is smog exempt and comes with a clean California title.
