The Mercedes Type 300 was first introduced in 1951 at the Frankfurt Auto Show and was produced for nearly a decade. Throughout this time, there were four distinct style and engineering changes, including the release of the 1954 Mercedes Benz 300B. Externally, the 300B was identical to the 300; however, horsepower increased, larger brakes were introduced, higher compression was offered from the engine, and there was the addition of Solex carburetors. Other items that would help distinguish a 300B from an earlier 300 model are the finned brake drum, brake booster and front door vents, all of which were offered on the new 300B. Offered as a sedan and a sedan convertible, the later being the most popular, only 87 of the 1954 Mercedes 300B sedan convertibles were produced.
