The Mercedes 300 S Roadster

The Type 300 S (W 188 I) was presented at the Paris Salon in October 1951. Compared to the preceding Type 300, the chassis of the 300 S had a 150 mm shorter wheelbase. The engine power could be increased to 150 hp by using three carburettors - which made a top speed of 109 mph feasible. The new top model, which was produced in three variations as Cabriolet A, Roadster and Coupe, enthused the international trade press right from the start and the 300 S was praised as a "car of the world's elite" and a "benchmark for what is achievable in automobile construction today".

 

Details I

Delivered in Germany to the company F. Meyer in Dinslaken according to the Mercedes-Benz commission sheet on 26.07.1954 means that this is one of the few Mercedes 300 S that did not go to the USA like the other 80 percent. The car was delivered in the rare colour "silver-grey" (DB 125) with red leather. The strong dollar at the time and the many US soldiers stationed in Germany also caused another significant proportion of the cars already delivered in Germany to migrate to the USA.

Details II

In the 1970s, the car came to a Japanese collector in Los Angeles, who owned it for a while and then resold it in the USA. In the early 2010s, the Mercedes finally returned to Germany, where it was restaurated with great dedication over several years. In the end, the vehicle was completely restored and looks like a new car!
