The description of this Mercedes 300SE for sale should be seen from the perspective that it is an unrestored and original car from 1963
Exterior: The paint is nice even part of it is believed to be the original. Also chrome parts are in very good condition. Windows have never been removed from this car, but rubber is still very good just like all glass. The W112 300SE is to me the best-looking coupe from Mercedes since it sits very low and have that chromed side trim making it look even longer and sleeker. Please note that this is 99% unwelded car! One very small patch was found in the floor otherwise all original.
Interior: Here we have an all original interior that is still in amazing condition. Yes, there are some cracks in the lacquer on the wood panels, and yes, the carpet is a little bit faded from the sun. But the leather is absolutely beautiful, just like all chrome and the instruments. You can truly feel the year 1963 when you sit inside and drive this car. I have had some of the best classic car experiences in a car like this, coming through the night over the mountains hearing that sweet six humming away km after km. Nice time period correct working radio.
Engine: In this Mercedes 300SE Coupe for sale I am pretty sure the odometer in this car has turned once, so it has around 150,000km when I am writing this in total. The engine runs very nicely and there is no smoke. The car had been standing for some time when I found it. It was parked in 1995 and I started working on it in 2019. All fluids and filters were replaced. The tank was cleaned out properly and new seals were fitted to the fuel pump. A new exhaust pipe was fitted and new rubber doughnuts in the air suspension all around. New water pump and many cooling hoses and clamps are new. The brake system was a big job and all callipers have been rebuilt, new hoses, main cylinder and brake servo. Also, clutch cylinder was rebuilt.
History: I am still working on tracking down the history of this Mercedes 300SE Coupe for sale, but it looks like there have been 3 owners over the years. And I have a data card for the car showing that it is in correct colour and with correct engine. The car comes with a binder with all collected receipts for the parts and work mentioned above. A major investment has been made in 2019 to put this car back to its former glory. Comes with original items such as handbook in original plastic pouch, spare, jack and original tools.
