The last of the Type 300 models before the Mercedes Benz 300b was released, the 1955 Mercedes Benz 300 was often praised as one of the most elegant and powerful luxury cars of the 1950's. With an emphasis on engineering, the Mercedes 300 offered new running gear from end to end, and a overhead-cam 3.0L inline-six, which would later gain fame in the 300SL racing and road-going Gullwing models. The chassis was oval-tube and offered independent suspension all around. Rear height was also electrically adjustable from inside with the use of auxiliary torsion bars. These advancements in engineering and style would catapult Mercedes Benz into more modern full-width lines, which would stay with the brand for decades.
Although the 1955 Mercedes Benz 300 and its other year models were ponderous to drive, they were meticulously engineered and elegantly appointed.
