Mercedes aficionados and classic car enthusiasts will tell you that the last of the Type 300 line was more of a showpiece and indulgence to the firm than a car meant for mass production. Regardless of why Mercedes Benz continued producing the Mercedes 300D and its sister models into 1961, there are a wealth of happy collectors that are glad they did! While the first three models of the line, the 300, 300B, and 300C, differed mostly in technical advancements and a few visual aspects, the last version was not only larger, but it offered a more powerful fuel injected engine. These changes made the 1958 300D (and the other year models of the 300D) more in line with the American luxury cars of the time. Additionally, the 300D was striking visually, in that it was the first Mercedes Benz sedan with a hardtop roof. All four windows could be lowered with their chrome frames, and there was no B-pillar. Even the rear quarter lights could be removed and stored in small pockets located inside the trunk. When buyers chose the Webasto sunroof option, the 1958 Mercedes D could almost pass for a cabriolet, thus the name the convertible limousine.
A total of 3,077 300D models were produced between 1957 and March 1962, along with 65 special-order 300D-based Cabriolet models. As one might imagine, these 65 Cabriolet 300Ds are the most sought-after today and continue to be the epitome of the Type 300 line.
