Designated as a W189 instead of the W186 like its sister models, the 1961 Mercedes Benz 300D offered a longer wheelbase and a pillar-less design. This longer and more airy design, paired with removable rear quarter lights, allowed for an unobstructed view from the front-to-back and side-to-side, making this a popular parade car in its day. Some of the unique options that can raise the value of a 1961 Mercedes Benz 300D are Becker radio models, VHF short-waved telephone, dictation machine, Webasto and metal sunroof, and custom-ordered combinations of wood trim, leather, cloth and carpeting. The 300D was also notable different from its 300, 300B and 300C predecessors in three other ways. First, many models were produced with the Borg-Warner automatic transmission. Second, the front and rear bumpers took on a less massive profile than in previous models. Lastly, power steering and air conditioning became an option.
