1971 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series --

1971 MERCEDES BENZ 300 SEL 6.3 --Light Ivory with Tan Leather interior, Tan carpeting, 106,000 miles, 6.3 Liter V8 with 4-Speed Automatic Transmission, Factory sunroof. VIN: 631-318-20315207 Options include: Factory Sunroof, Single Seats, Instruments in English, Side view mirrors left & right, Becker Radio, Air conditioner and Heated rear pane. The 6.3 liter is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, the 500E of its day and was the fastest sedan produced from Mercedes, which had performance similar to most dedicated sports cars...and American muscle cars of the era. It could cruise at over 125 mph with 5 occupants in comfort. Air suspension, ventilated disc brakes on all four wheels, power windows, central locking and power steering all came standard. Just over 6,500 of the 300 SEL 6.3’s were built. This example has benefited from dedicated care over the years – within the past several years it has received a complete repaint, new interior and wood trim refinished – all work carried out in its original livery. This work was carried out by a well-known Georgia collector who we believe to be this 6.3’s second ownership from new. This 6.3 is a well sorted presentable driving example. It is ready for immediate enjoyment while offering the collector-enthusiast an extremely collectable Mercedes model. It is ready and welcoming its next enthusiastic custodian. Once described by Road & Track magazine as "...merely the greatest sedan in the world" the 300 SEL 6.3 is now gaining recognition as a true collector's item and is thought of as one of the finest four-door saloon cars ever made.
