Designated and named internally as the W186, the Mercedes Type 300 was the first line of auto produced by Mercedes Benz after the destruction of industrial Germany during World War II. Remarkably advanced and refined for its time, some see the 1954 Mercedes Benz 300 and the other year models as the finest engineered saloon car of the 1950's. Without a doubt, the Type 300 or the Adenauer as it became known exemplified Mercedes commitment to excellence, which can still be seen today with models such as the S-Class. The Type 300 is also famous for leading the way for such world-famous models as the 300SL Gullwing, for which it was closely related. Over its ten years of production, the design went through four distinct phases. By the time the 300C rolled off the production line in 1955, more horsepower, an optional automatic transmission, and a higher final drive were offered. In 1957, the 300D was introduced and was more powerful still.
While the Type 300 is bulky, tedious in tight spots, and parts can be nearly impossible to find, many of todays classic car and Mercedes Benz enthusiasts can't wait to get their hands on one of these exceptional autos. Because these autos can be so difficult to find, many collectors do not choose a specific year model, yet choose a specific model designation, such as the 300, 300B, 300C, 300D, 300S, or 300SC. The 1954 Mercedes Benz 300 is a great option for many buyers and can also be a bit easier to find as approximately 6,214 of the 300 and 300B models were produced between 1951 and 1955. One of the most helpful Buyer's Tips that the California classic car dealership professionals at The Beverly Hills Car Club can offer is to have the car inspected by a third party, particularly if you are purchasing the auto without the help of a dealership. Additionally, you will want to understand the extent of any rust damage and how complete and original the car is.
