The luxury passenger car genre was a tough one to gain traction in during 1955. This is where you'll see the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud and Bentley S1. It's a small place where few car makers dare to tread, and in 1955, constrained resources and all, Mercedes was still proving that its 1955 Mercedes Benz 300S Cabriolet could pamper its passengers with the best of them. It's a rare car, with only 203 Cabriolets seeing streets between 1951 and 1955. To this day, Mercedes continues to make vast engineering improvements to its cars that often lead the market, and the 1955 Mercedes 300S Cabriolet was just one step in an illustrious history of exceptional German engineering. Mercedes outfitted the car with luxury features that were offered in other brands 30 years later and billed as added luxury convenience. The Chancellor of Germany's personal vehicle included a writing desk, privacy curtains, and a dividing partition, to name just a few. Mercedes outfitted the front end with an independent suspension and the rear with swing axle and coil springs. Under the hood lies an inline 6 cylinder capable of 175 horsepower, enabling a steady drum beat of smooth, safe, cruising. Most vehicles, including many Mercedes production models, were moving to a body on frame construction. The 1955 Mercedes Benz 300S Cabriolet maintained a body on frame construction to preserve the highest quality possible. Mercedes intended for the car to be an icon rather than a popular production model, and no detail was spared in making the ultimate luxury car.
