HISTORY OF THE MERCEDES 300D "ADENAUR"

In the 1950’s the Mercedes-Benz lineup was vast and diverse with a range that included

everything from buses and trucks to the 300SL sports car.

Many of the famous SL’s components were courtesy of the flagship 300 sedan produced

from 1951-1962.

The W189 300D was the final evolution of what became known as the “Adenauer” sedan

named so for the German Chancellor Dr. Konrad Adenauer who famously had six of these

magnificent automobiles in his personal fleet.

The 300D improved on prior versions with a freshened body design that was wider all around

with an attractive flat roof and extended rear quarter panels.

The 3.0 inline six was updated with an 8.5:1 compression ratio and Bosch fuel injection

adapted from the 300SL.

Of course luxurious equipment abounded and the 300D boasted a wheelbase that was longer

than the comparable Rolls Royce Silver Cloud LWB. One notable characteristic was rear

quarter windows that could be removed making the 300D an elegant and airy "PILLARLESS"

sedan from the vent windows back.

The benefit of years of development and styling tweaks the 300D Adenauer sedans are highly

sought after by collectors today.
