The highly exclusive Mercedes-Benz 300 "Adenauer" series was the
standard-bearer for European luxury automobiles throughout the
1950s. Led by the four-door sedan and Cabriolet D models, the range
was soon enhanced with the sports-touring 300 S version aimed at
the owner-driver, offered in Coupe, Cabriolet, or Roadster form,
and powered by an enhanced triple-carburetor inline-six. In 1955,
the 300 Sc marked the ultimate touring version of the Adenauer
line, with exotic Bosch mechanical fuel injection, giving
outstanding performance without sacrificing the refinement and
quality that defined Mercedes-Benz's acclaimed flagship. This is
one of just 98 Sc Coupes produced, from a total of 200
fuel-injected cars built across three body styles. A gorgeous
example, it features a well-maintained restoration by a noted
Adenauer specialist, Charles Brahms of Irvine, California.
Beautifully finished as-delivered in DB320 dark blue over 955 gray
leather trim, it features original options including Becker Mexico
radio and automatic antenna. Notably, this car's engine, chassis,
and body numbers match the data card. Mechanically, the car is
correct and in generally good order, though it has been on static
display for an extended period, and some minor recommissioning is
required. One of the finest and most exclusive luxury touring cars
of the era, prime for enjoyment. This vehicle just arrived, and a
full description is coming soon. Please contact Hyman Ltd for more
details. Offers welcome and trades considered For additional
