Mercedes 300 Adenauer 1955

Mercedes 300 B W186 Adenauer 1955 for sale

Exterior: Original black paint with an incredible depth. Room and rubber details are very close to perfect. A big black Mercedes like this almost needs tyres with a thin white stripe if you do not like it, these can be turned inwards

Interior: This car has an all original interior in close to perfect condition. I would think that it is very rare to find a Mercedes from 1955 with an original interior in such great condition as this one.

Engine/History: This car that had the licence plate O39409 was bought new in July 27, 1955, by Lundberg Bilstation, a limousine service company in Göteborg (Gothenburg), Sweden. Customers were large industrial companies and companies in shipping industry in Göteborg. It should also have been used as transport to other national and international celebrities. After 15 years of distinguished service, it was in September 11th 1970 sold to Harry Carlsson. The car had then run 110,000 km. Harry was the owner of Kallebäcks åkeri, a road carrier company in Göteborg which he founded in 1928 and now had developed to a substantial size. His son has mentioned that Harry was very pedantic about the car and maintained it in very good condition. At that time Harry lived in Tvååker south of Göteborg and the car got the licence plate N39409. In 1973, the licence plate was replaced by the new type.

In 1977 Harry passed away and the car that still was in very god shape, as stated by his son, was sold to Alf in Kullavik. The care had now run 205,000 km. Alf was a Mercedes collector and did some work on the car. He has stated that he had a high-quality paintwork done on the car. He had also the chassis thoroughly cleaned e.g. taking old body coat away and painting it.

In October 28, 1995 the car with 209,000 km on the meter, was sold to Ingemar in Ulricehamn. He is a car collector and owner of Ulricehamns Bilexpo, which used to be the local Mercedes dealer.

In October 13, 2002 the car was bought by Stanley in Västerås. It had then 210,200 km on the meter. Stanley is another Swedish car collector.

The present owner, also being a Mercedes collector, bought the car in February 3rd, 2009. The meter then showed 215,000 km. He rebuilt the engine by boring the cylinders and putting new pistons in. The crankshaft was grinded, and all bearings replaced. The cylinder top was grinded, and all valves were checked and found ok. All valve guides were replaced and valves and valve seats grinded. The motor rubber mounts were replaced. The engine now runs very well, with oil pressure according to specification and without excessive mechanical noise.
The central lubrication system has been renovated. The brake system has been through a thorough overhaul.
A tailored stainless-steel exhaust system (Ferita) has been mounted. The battery was replaced in 2019.
The car has now run about 218,000 km.
