1951-1956 MERCEDES-BENZ 300 Cabriolet D specifications Classic and Performance Car

This convertible version of the 300 saloon was built in limited numbers and was most commonly seem with the leaders of any number of nations waving from the rear seats. Side windows and frames lower fully to make it a full convertible. A car with enormous presence, it also requires an enormous wallet should you need to undertake restoration work, though the value of a good one does go some way towards reflecting this. As with the saloons, the later the version you buy, the better equipment it will have, and the better you’ll enjoy the driving experience.
