What makes the Mercedes Benz 300C so special is that it was the first time a German passenger car was offered with the option for an automatic transmission. Another interesting piece of trivia is the fact that Mercedes wanted to stop production of the Type 300 during this time, and had announced its cancellation. Due to high demand from dealers, however, the 300D would be introduced in August 1957. If you’re thinking about buying a 1957 Mercedes Benz 300C Cabriolet, you likely understand why dealers were so insistent that the product line be continued. Offered as a true Saloon and as a convertible Cabriolet, the 300C Cabriolet would be cancelled after June 1956 and the Saloon would remain in production until July 1957. Some Cabriolets are named 1957 model years. If you’re looking for Buyer’s Tips for this particular model or for any classic American or European luxury sports car The Beverly Hills Car Club looks forward to providing you with the resources you need.
The Mercedes 300C was the first to offer an option for automatic transmission. While in most cases classic sports luxury cars are more valuable with a manual transmission, because this was the first time it was offered, finding a 300C with the automatic transmission can be a good find. Of course this ultimately depends on your personal taste. The 1957 Mercedes Benz 300C Cabriolet is also a great investment, as buyers are always looking for the rare convertible models. In fact, only 51 units of the 300C Cabriolet would roll off the production floor during its short tenure. While this can make finding a 1957 300C Cabriolet difficult, when you find one you’ll know you’ve got a valuable piece of classic car history. As would be expected, prices for the Cabriolets exceed the standard Saloon.
