The 6.3 liter is a wolf in sheep's clothing, the 500E of its day
and was the fastest sedan produced from Mercedes, which had
performance similar to most dedicated sports cars and American
muscle cars of the era. It could cruise at over 125 mph with 5
occupants in comfort. Air suspension, ventilated disc brakes on all
four wheels, power windows, central locking and power steering all
came standard. Just over 6,500 of the 300 SEL 6.3's were built.
This 300 SEL 6.3 was sold new by Mercedes Benz of Athens, Georgia
to it first owner, a local physician. This 300 SEL never left
Georgia, but did venture to North Carolina from time to time to
another of the owner's residences. It stayed in the same ownership
care until approximately ten years ago when purchased by a
well-known Georgia collector. This example has benefited from
dedicated care over the years - within the past several years it
has received a complete repaint, new interior and wood trim
refinished - all work carried out in its original livery. More
recently this 300 had a service and its fuel injection pump
Once described by Road & Track magazine as "...merely the greatest
sedan in the world" the 300 SEL 6.3 is now gaining recognition as a
true collector's item and is thought of as one of the finest
four-door saloon cars ever made.
This 6.3 is a well sorted presentable driving example that has been
well-known to Autosport Designs and which we have sold in the past
and only just recently received back on trade toward another
automobile from our inventory. It is ready for immediate enjoyment
while offering the collector-enthusiast an extremely collectable
Mercedes model. It is ready and welcoming its next enthusiastic
