Mercedes Benz enthusiasts across the globe doubled whether or not the company could recover from the wartime bombings during World War II, however, by the early 1950's, Mercedes was producing not only trucks, but also a full range of cars. This range included the illustrious Type 300 sedan, which was immediately successful. Several variations of the Type 300 would exist over its production years, including the 300, 300B, 300C, 300D, 300S, and the 300SC. First introduced in 1955, the 1955 Mercedes Benz 300SC was fuel injected with its inline-six engine delivering more than 173 horsepower. Visually, the 300SC was nearly identical to the 300S, however the chrome strips on either side of the hood was a clear distinguishing characteristic of the SC model. Prices rose drastically for this model and only the most elite purchasers were lucky enough to own one, as only 200 models produced.
Here are a few other Buyer's Tips for distinguishing a 1955 Mercedes Benz 300SC from a 300S. First, the 300S has rubber strips on the bumper, where the 300SC has chrome plate bumpers with the word einspritzmotor on the rear bumper. Second, on the 1955 300SC, the transmission cover is not removable as on the 300S. Lastly, under the hood on the side panels, the 300SC has horizontal moldings.
