MERCEDES TYPE 300 d 1/24


The breakaway atmosphere in post-war Germany: Also the automobile industrie is back in action and picked up on its past performance from pre-war years. At the IAA in Frankfurt, in April 1951 Daimler-Benz presents the type 300 d as the biggest and at that time fastest serial manufactured car of German production. Within a very short time this model is the preference vehicle for prominent personalities of politics, commerce and cinema.

The federal president Theodor Heuss and minister for economic affairs Ludwig Erhard are driven in the 300er. But the model became famous as the “Adenauer Mercedes”, then the first federal chancellor emphasised the importance of only being driven in the 300er.

In August 1957 the Mercedes-Benz type 300 was presented as a modernised version: the 300 d, which became available as a cabriolet D in July 1958. Only 65 units of them were ever built, at the proud price for those times of 37.000,– DM.

The appearance of the 300 d, cabriolet D with its ponton shaped contours is simple and yet impressively elegant. Conspicuous is the four door bodywork, the panorama rear window and the spacious trunk.
