Prior to the release of the famous Mercedes Ponton models in 1963, the engineers and designers at Mercedes were already planning the release of the Type 300, also known as the “Adenauer” limousines. While these models looked very similar visually to the Pontons, the 1951 Mercedes Benz 300 had a separate body and frame – the defining difference. These unique autos were instant symbols of prestige and were used primarily by heads of state, royalty, governments, and even the Pope. In fact, from 1951 to 1962, the Mercedes 300 was among the most exclusive of the luxury car market. Thanks to high demand and notoriety, the Mercedes 300 had an 11-year production run, during which time the line saw several specification changes. There was the 300B, the 300C, the 300D, the 300S, and the 300SC. Among the car’s most notable owners are Big Crosby, the King of Jordan, the Prime Minister of Thailand, and Clark Gable, to name just a few.
