As one of the world’s largest car companies, Mercedes-Benz can trace its lineage back over 100 years. Whether it’s a classic 300SL roadster or an elegant 600 Pullman limousine, the Mercedes star has always stood for great styling and reliability. In 1968, Mercedes shocked the luxury car market with the 300 SEL. Developed in the mid-1960s, the finely crafted 300SEL luxury sedan immediately found a solid customer base. Designed by Paul Bracq, it established the Mercedes-Benz look that endured for several decades. Powered by a large V-8 borrowed from the Pullman limousine, this two-ton Mercedes was capable of some incredible performance that was not normally found in a sedan. In fact, while the 300SEL was in production, it was widely known as world's fastest four-door car. The 300SEL stayed in production for only four years with production ending in 1972, but in that time just over 6,500 were produced and they had no equal.

Offered here is a fine example of this German luxury car with this 1971 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL finished a lovely Light Ivory with a tan leather interior. This car has been expertly maintained and was completely repainted, also receiving a new interior with all wood refinished. Everything about this car speaks of the luxury and class for which only a Mercedes-Benz is known. Mercedes’s large and impressive grille is flanked by quad headlamps and a double bar grille that is beautifully styled. A lateral trim spear runs the entire length of the car and the rear received the same double bar bumper treatment with the Mercedes-Benz star at the center of the trunk. With a wheelbase of 112.2-inches, the 300SEL cuts an impressive figure, but is not so big as to make it difficult to drive. This 300SEL rides on correct factory rims with blackwall tires that give it the perfect formal look. The true luxury of this car is found on the inside where beautiful tan leather is abundant. As a new interior, all components are perfect with fine stitching in all the upholstery, perfectly fitted rugs, and matching leather door panels complete with wood trim. Most deceiving is the dashboard layout, which speaks more to the heart of Grand Touring than it does German luxury. All gauges are straight ahead of the driver in a walnut dashboard that is a work of art. This 300SEL is also fitted with a sunroof that’s perfect on a summer day. This Mercedes carries a Becker radio and even has a clock just to left of the steering column. Rear seat passengers are treated to luxury beyond compare with nicely bolstered seats and a pull-down center armrest. There’s also a storage net on the rear of the front seats for carrying extra items. Power for this luxury sedan comes from a 6.3-liter V-8 with Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection. This large engine can propel this luxury car to a top speed of 125 miles per hour. The engine compartment is clean and tidy with all components correctly placed and all surfaces clean. All work on this 300SEL was performed by a well-known Georgia collector and it was restored and maintained to the highest standards by a team of artisans with Pebble Beach restoration experience. It is now ready for immediate enjoyment while offering the collector-enthusiast a highly collectable Mercedes luxury car.

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It certainly carried the look and appeal of a luxury car, but also offered sports car-like performance that could compete with any American muscle car of the day. Perhaps Road & Track said it best when they described it as “the greatest sedan in the world." For fine motoring in the grandest sense, this 300SEL is ready for any duty that requires the utmost in speed and reliability.
