car description

The Mercedes-Benz 300 Cabriolet D offered here was produced for the American market and delivered to Hoffman Motor Company in New York on 11/14/1952. In 1982 it was purchased by Roy Shields in Illinois. In 1989, it then began its journey to a Japanese museum in Osaka. Since it served exclusively as an exhibit during this time, it was never registered in Japan.

In 1996, the car was finally purchased by an American dealer and exported to Germany. There it was uncompromisingly restored in the same year. Of this, we have all the invoices and photo documentation, which demonstrate the detail and care of the restoration. The vehicle was appraised in 2019 by Classic-Data and the condition was accordingly rated with the grade 1-.

Thus, it presents itself even today in a technically flawless condition knows how to inspire with its imposing, yet elegant appearance. A rare convertible with statesmanlike character, which is gladly moved on quiet country roads in beautiful weather and thereby gives a lot of pleasure.

History of the series

The Type 300 was the first model after the war, which was produced by Daimler as a representative vehicle. Konrad Adenauer was one of the first prominent politicians to be chauffeured in what was then the largest and fastest series-produced car of German manufacture - which is how the name "Adenauer-Mercedes" became naturalized. Other politicians who used a 300 as an official car were Theodor Heuss and Ludwig Erhard.

Technically, the vehicle was based on the Type 260 from 1940, which was not made ready for series production because of the war. Thus, its engine and chassis were adapted to the higher requirements of the heavier vehicle. The W 186 reached a top speed of about 160 km/h, a remarkable figure for the time.

In March 1954 came the first model update, the now so-called 300 b had, among other things, a revised engine and a vacuum brake booster. In September 1955, the last revision of the 186 series was presented, the 300 c. This had, among other things, a single-joint brake booster. This had received, among other things, a single-joint swing axle and was now also available with automatic transmission.
