We are proud to offer you the following great car, very rare and desirable : 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 S Roadster One of only 141 Roadsters ( disappearing top ) built ! Chassis no. 150 hp, 2,996 cc overhead-camshaft inline six-cylinder engine with three downdraft Solex carburetors, four-speed column-shift manual transmission, double-wishbone, coil-spring, and torsion bar front suspension, coil-spring swing axle rear suspension, and four-wheel vacuum-assisted hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 110 in. The sportiest 300 S variant was the roadster, which was a convertible that featured a top that folded completely flat, giving the car a very elegant appearance. Only 141 were produced, and they are the most desirable 300 Ses amongst enthusiasts today. According to the previous owner, the car shown here has a 1953 chassis number but was sold in the United States as a 1954 model. It came off the line in early 1954, according to Mercedes-Benz records, and was then delivered to the West Coast distributor in Ventura, California, on June 22, 1954. This was apparently the second 300 S off the line in 1954, in a year when only 54 Roadsters were built, and it is also equipped with a rare Becker Nürburg radio. The car eventually ended up in Chicago, where it spent some 20 years in a garage. When purchased by the last owner, it had been repainted white and a new blue top, which is still in place and in good condition, was installed. The owner then shipped the car to Lyford Engineering in Plymouth, Michigan, who restored the engine. Next ,the car was repainted and color was matched to the Mercedes-Benz Silver. The original seats remain in the car and are in decent shape, but do show wear. Likewise, the chrome trim is in good original condition as well. We just had the triple carbs rebuilt and she runs great , ready for you to enjoy ! Please inquire for price , as the market keeps moving North on these and other hi - quality collector vehicles. Can ship anywhere on the Globe for reasonable price. Call JP at + 1 954 525 0600
