Doubting whether or not Daimler-Benz could recover from the wartime bombings during World War II that nearly leveled their entire production facility, the automotive world took note when the Mercedes Benz 300SC came on the scene in 1955. The successor to the Type 300, 300B, 300C, 300D and 30S, the 1955 Mercedes Benz 300SC Cabriolet was fuel-injected with an inline-six engine capable of producing more than 173 horsepower. Visually, the 300SC Cabriolet had a commanding presence with an unparalleled style and flare. Nearly identical to the 300S that had come before it, the 300SC would also offer chrome strips on either side of the hood a distinguishing factor between the two models. Prices for the 300SC Cabriolet also rose dramatically when compared to the 300S; only the most affluent and elite buyers of the day would be lucky enough to own one. In total, only 53 Mercedes Benz 300SC Cabriolet would be released, making it one of the most rare and sought-after Mercedes of all time.
