The 1956 Mercedes Benz 300C Cabriolet, like all Mercedes Type 300 models from this era, is one of the most recognized and stately luxury sedans in the classic car market today. As part of the third-generation of Type 300 models, the 300C would feature a new three-speed Borg-Warner automatic transmission, rear wheels driven by a single-pivot swing axle, a larger tires and rims. The Cabriolet version, of which only 48 were produced in 1956, would sell for $14,231 and attracted the most elite buyers of the day. If you’re thinking about buying a 1956 Mercedes Benz 300C, you’ve come to the right place. What makes the 300C Cabriolet special is that this would be the last time the Cabriolet (called the Cabriolet D) would be offered in the Type 300 lineup. Starting with the 300D, the Cabriolet would be a special-order car.
When buying a 1956 Mercedes Benz 300C Cabriolet, one of the first things you’ll need to decide is what condition you’d like your model to be in. While there is not a large selection to choose from, setting a budget and knowing your expectations beforehand can be quite helpful during the purchase. For example, if you’re looking for a restoration project, you may be fine with a poor quality model as long as there is not too much rust and the chrome trim pieces are intact (they are quite expensive). On the other hand, if you’re looking for a pristine showpiece, perhaps only the highest quality restoration will do. Try to set these expectations and a budget prior to starting your search. Secondly, you’ll need to be keenly aware of the market. With such little inventory of 300C Mercedes on the market, the sale of one unit can skew the value of these cars since value is directly correlated to demand. The Beverly Hills Car Club, a leading California classic car dealership based in Los Angeles, has been working in the classic car market for years. They are in tune with changes in the market and can help you find the 300C Cabriolet you desire in the condition and price range you require.
