A truly massive automobile for its time, the Mercedes Benz 300 was the first completely new offering from Daimler-Benz following World War II. With an emphasis primarily on engineering, the 300 featured an overhead-cam 3.0-liter inline six that would later gain praise in the 300SL racing and road-going sports cars. Though the Mercedes 300 remained in production for a decade, in its last years it was mostly an indulgence for the firm. The first of the specification changes happened in 1954 when Mercedes introduced the Mercedes Benz 300B. While there were no visible external changes, the 300 B offered higher compression, 10 more horsepower and a pair of Solex carburetors. Additional upgrades included front door vents and upgraded finned brake drums.
While the Mercedes Benz 300B was bulky and tedious in tight spots, it was meticulously engineered and beautifully finished. Enthusiasts praise the 300 B for its solid separate chassis, spaciousness, and somewhat advanced engineering for its time. On the other hand, when looking to buy classic Mercedes 300B models, buyers should be aware that parts are difficult to find making these autos expensive to restore and maintain. During its production from 1951 to 1955, approximately 6,241 of the 300 and 300 B models were produced. Later models, the 300C and 300D, saw 1,432 and 3,077 models produced respectively.
