The Mercedes Type 300 was an incredibly massive automobile for its time by both American and European standards. In fact, automotive industry experts often praise the car for being a big car for big occasions. Additionally, the 1955 Mercedes Benz 300B Adenauer (and its other year models) was a top luxury automobile, often reserved for the rich and famous. When it was introduced together with its smaller counterpart the Mercedes 220 in April 1951 at the Frankfurt Auto Show, it created quite a stir not only among the public, but with the press as well. The price was also impressive. In America it released at a base price of $6,500, which very few people were able to afford. For example, a top of the line Cadillac during the same time was priced at approximately $5,900. It is no wonder why elite buyers such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Cary Cooper, Anthony Quinn, and Kin Gustaf Adolph of Sweden were among the first to line up for this milestone release.
Over the span of eleven years, Mercedes was able to sell approximately 11,430 of the Mercedes 300 Adenauer. Interestingly, only 707 of these were cabriolets. While these numbers may not have lived up to the sales expectations of the release, it did help re-establish the image of Mercedes as being a leading manufacturer of exceptionally engineered luxury automobiles after World War II.
