1959 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series Adenauer Additional Info:

Hello to all eBayers!I have been with eBay for several years and I want to keep my reputation here 100% positive. I am a private collector, who has endless passion for classic cars and trucks. 90% of the vehicles have been rented out to movies commercials or high-class parties. Right now, I’m liquidating my collection since I’m selling my warehouse. Are you an old vehicles connoisseur looking for classic/vintage vehicles without having to pay luxury prices? You are in the... right place! I know that magic feeling when the right quality meets the right price, so I sell my vehicles worldwide at the most reasonable prices.This 1960 MERCEDES-BENZ 300 is located in a Copart facility in 7519 WOODMAN AVE, VAN NUYS, CA 91405. I tried to sell it on Copart, but this vehicle is a classic, clean title vehicle. You can buy this vehicle on Ebay or through Copart by becoming a member.This vehicle has a clear CA title. 1960 MERCEDES-BENZ 300 ADENAUERThe Mercedes-Benz W189 model 300 was a four-door luxury tourer produced by Mercedes-Benz between 1957 and 1962. The company's largest and most prestigious automobile, it was the Maybach of its day, elegant, powerful, exclusive, and expensive.Marketed as the Type 300d, it was equal in features and price but superior in performance to the rival Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. Favored by statesmen and business leaders, it offered options such as a glass partition, VHF mobile telephone, and dictation machine.All but hand-built as the company flagship, the 300d is often identified as an Adenauer after Konrad Adenauer, the first chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, who employed six custom cabriolet, hardtop saloon, and landaulet versions of the W189 and its precursor W186 series during his 1949-1963 tenure. Among the custom features in these "parade cars" were writing desks, sirens, curtains, dividing partitions, sunroofs, and half-roof "landaulet" configurations.Technologically advanced, the"Type 300" was regarded as a "driver's" car, sharing numerous design innovations and mechanical components with the iconic Mercedes-Benz 300 SL "Gullwing", including engine, suspension, and chassis.A successor to Mercedes' flagship W186 series final model, the 300c, the enlarged 300d (W189) was introduced in August 1957. Its new chassis code reflected sweeping refinements that included modernized bodywork, pioneering fuel injection, and a unique hardtop configuration transforming it into a pillarless phaeton.MechanicalYou’re looking at a 1959 Mercedes Benz 300 ‘Adenauer’ very original sedan with black exterior and black leather interior. This is a California solid Mercedes. It was a California car since the 50’s. The title doesn’t show the miles since CA DMV does not put mileage on older car titles. Odometer show shows only 80,782 miles. This car is extremely rare and is 1 of 3,077 models produced throughout 1957 to 1962, with an additional 65 special-order Cabriolets. The car is in very original shape, most importantly with the original matching number engine and transmission. Car is not running due to sitting for a few years but run before parked. Exterior The exterior of this car is solid and presentable. The paint looks nice. The trunk floor, floor panels, wheels arches, etc. are all solid. Jack points are also solid.

InteriorThe interior is very original and complete. Radio and clock are missing. The seats, door panels, headliner are in great shape. Trim is nice.
