1952 Mercedes-Benz 300-SeriesMy green Adenauer was modified by the last owner who bought the car as a young man stationed inEurope by the Army. After many years of ownership he had the engine replaced with a Chevrolet Crate 350 V8, automatic transmission and a Cadillac steering column with a Non-Mercedes, smaller wooden steering wheel to match the interior wood trim.
On the body, under the trunk, you will see multiple, evenly spaced holes. These are for the two pieces of chrome trim between the back lights. This trim is missing, not supplied with the car. The Adenauer is also missing the two sun visors but has the sun visor hardware to hold them, still on the car.
The wool upholstery is still in good condition and driver & passenger Cocomat car mats have been added ($350+ value).
Whitewall tires, a new Mattson radiator and electric fan and underdash temperature gauge have been added. Over $3,000 invested in getting the brakes redone by CH. Topping of Long Beach, in our opinion, one of the best brake shops in the U.S.A. Also, an electric fuel pump has been added.
Repainted in the original color in 1994 and motor replaced with a new "crate" Chevrolet IROC V8 and the interior completely re-done.
This is a big, heavy, serious, German automobile without power steering. Handsome and majestic. It is a great car for shows and casual trips.
The car is kept in a warehouse in Rancho Dominguez, CA near the 91 & 710 freeways. First & foremost, keep in mind that this is a 64 year old car and is not perfect -- you're not buying a Honda but you are buying a beautiful collector driving machine.
Personal inspection welcome.
