'69 Mercedes Benz 300SEL 6.3 in silver with blue interior.
Excellent color combination. Low miles. Not flawless, but complete andoriginal car with lots of potential.
The 1969 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 is considered the genesis of the large luxury Sports Sedan segment and a coveted model among Mercedes-Benz collectors. It combines the typical German engineering, build quality, and performance of their sports cars with the luxury and comfort of their touring sedans. The 300SEL 6.3 was created by fitting Mercedes' excellent, 300hp/434 ft/pds of torque, 6.3 liter V8 with Bosch fuel injection from their 600 and 600 Pullman series, into the standard 300SEL body, thus creating an amazing combination of performance and luxury. Mercedes-Benz also added larger wheels, a four-speed automatic transmission, upgraded power four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, and four-wheel independent suspension; which included air suspension with adjustable ride height. Many other extra features were included as standard items, such as air conditioning, radio, leather upholstery, power steering, and power windows. This new combination allowed the 300SEL 6.3 to accelerate from 0-60mph in 6.5 seconds
and to reach speeds of almost 140 mph while also maintaining stellar handling and comfort; which hadn't been seen by the automotive world in a Sports Sedan to date.The 300SEL 6.3 was not inexpensive by any standards, as it cost more than double that of the new Porsche 911S, but it's well rounded performance made it the sedan to have in 1969. Its high cost also contributed to its low production numbers with only limited numbers ofunits being produced and many of those cars being lost to use, rust, and the elements over the years. Of those cars produced, only fraction of them made it to the United States. That make them ultra rare collectors. The 300SEL 6.3 was considered to be one of the most sophisticated cars of its time, and still today it has a devoted following in the automotive collector car world. It is the perfect combination of performance and luxury.
Arguably one of Mercedes most sought after classic vehicles, this 6.3 features the 6.3 liter V8 engine from the Mercedes Pullman 600 limousines. It has massive power, when introduced it was the highest performance sedan ever made. This vehicle's engine was hand rebuiltfewyears ago (See picture).Itwas professionally completely rebuilt and any worn parts were replaced with genuine Mercedes-Benz parts. So engine is as good as new, bulletproofand can last forever.
The interior is in very good condition and all original, the wood around the dash is in decent shape. The engine runs great and the sophisticated air suspension lifts the car up quickly. The carwas just fitted with new air bags.
All parts original, great condition! A very good example of this rare model, which is very hard to find. Rarely a nicer one comes on the market.
A great previously owned, smoke-free automobile. One owner,original BC car that was bought by his owner 47 years ago. I acquired it recently. Its 88 years old owner backed up into a shelf in his garage and damaged it a little bit on the rear (see picture). Then he decided to finally quit driving and sell his bellowed Mercedes, he had for 47 years, since new. The car is completely original and still shows very well. It can be driven or restored. If decision is to restore the car, it would be worthwhile as this car is good mechanically, with beautifully and smooth running (virtually almostnew) engine.The transmission shifts through all the gears crisply/firmly. The gear handle is currently disconnected from transmission as it is missing a bushing for the transmission linkage. It is small plastic $6 piece, but hard to find original one. The car displayed no signs of structural rust at all, just some surface bubbling in some spots (sun roof for example). Structural rust free. Overall, this vehicle's exterior is clean. The interior is clean and in good condition. Excellent original car with lots of potential..
The interior is completely original and the leather is in amazing shape for its age. The dash pad is flawless with no cracks. The headliner is very good. All of the door panels are in very decent condition showing almost no signs of wear.All seat are nice without cracks or splits on them. The trunk area is nice and clean. No rust in the typical wheel well spots in the trunk.
