If you're thinking about buying a 1952 Mercedes Benz 300S Roadster, you likely already understand the class, elegance, and overstated luxury that these charming classics are known for. Whether parked or gliding down the streets, these 300S Roadster models command attention. Originally available as a 2+2 Coupe, a Cabriolet or as a Roadster, the Type 300 was certainly a car for the distinguished and affluent. In fact, famous owners include everyone from entertainers like Clarke Cable to government officials and affluent businessmen; Konrad Adenauer, the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany was perhaps the most notable. Having owned more than six Type 300 models of various specifications throughout his tenure, the classic would earn the nickname Adenauer. From 1951 to 1955, only 560 total units would be produced; of those, only 216 were Roadster models. As you probably already know, finding one of these rare and exceptional classics available for sale is perhaps your biggest feat. The team at The Beverly Hills Car Club can help in achieving that goal.
The 1952 Mercedes Benz 300S Roadster is of particular interest to many, as it had no landau bars and a top that completely disappeared when folded. Mercedes had also added three Solex downdraft carburetors to the 300, giving it 150 horsepower. Later the 300S would become the 300SC, which would offer fuel injection and new hydrovac power brakes. Cosmetically, you can differentiate the 300SC from the 300S by rubber and/r chrome strips on the bumper; the 300S has rubber, while the 300SC has solid chrome plate bumpers. When buying a 1952 Mercedes 300S Roadster, always be sure to have the car inspected by a third-party. These cars are quite expensive and it would be worth your investment to know about every inch of the cars mechanics and body. Furthermore, knowing any provenance or ownership and restoration history on these models can greatly increase their value. Always ask the sellers for any documentation they have regarding these items, as it will help you should you choose to sell the classic in the future.
