    We are very pleased to offer back to the market this stunning and highly collectable Mercedes 300SE Cabriolet (W111) The 300 SE of the late 1960s has been described as “The last of the great six-cylinder, two-door Mercedes.” The 300 SE represented the German automaker’s finest effort to produce the best handcrafted luxury automobile possible, using the best materials and workmanship, and was aimed directly at the world’s automotive cognoscenti. Over six years of production, only 3,127 300 SE coupes and convertibles emerged from Sindelfingen, and the most exclusive of that series was the 300 SE Cabriolet. Only 78 RHD in the world of these rare convertibles were made in 1964, with its muscular 3.0 liter 184 hp engine—lifted from the 300SL “gullwing”—and self-leveling pneumatic suspension with four wheel disc brakes, the silky-smooth four-speed automatic transmission, the best leathers, fabrics, and burled-wood veneers available all combined with a top speed of approximately 120 mph W112 300SE was the Mercedes to have in the 1960s. It was, at the time, the most expensive Mercedes-Benz one could buy, next to the venerable 600. First UK registered on 31st December 1964 our car is rumoured to have been supplied new to a diplomat who subsequently used it in South America, Australia and North America. Low ownership with 2 former keepers Somewhat down at heel when acquired by Mercedes-Benz specialist Walter Nieuwkoop during 2004, the 300SE Cabriolet's subsequent restoration was chronicled in various issues of the UK Mercedes-Benz Club's Gazette magazine. The latest owner owned the car for 4 years and prior to our purchase he carried out • rejuvenated air suspension pump • four new air suspension bags (even though only one was leaking) plus the associated pipework. • stainless steel exhaust • reconditioned automatic transmission Sold by ourselves a few months ago, delivered to our client in London and we have just managed to secure the owner a RHD 280SE 3.5V8 Cabriolet so this car is now available once again. Now back with ourselves We had just completed in preparation to be taken to South Africa. • Complete service, engine & brakes etc • Kenlowe fan fitment • Evans waterless coolant - complete water drain • Brand new white wall tyres • Re-core of the radiator • Re-connolise interior • Brand new hood storage cover • New battery and cut off switch • Brand new seat belt fitment to the front Increasingly collectible, good examples of the 300SE Cabriolet are rightly sought after. With the later and larger 280SE 3.5V8 cars now reaching 250k+ the 300SE option offers real value for money. Not to be missed and a water tight investment.

  • Mercedes Benz 300SE Convertible 53,000 miles


    1968 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SE Convertible This extremely rare and exceptionally original Mercedes-Benz 300SE convertible has only covered 53,000 original miles and is one of the very last of this flagship model built, as the 300 SE was discontinued in late 1967 and this motor car was first registered in Jersey in January 1968.The car is completely genuine, sharing the engine with the beautiful 300SL Gullwing, this example would be a prize exhibit in a motor museum as it is definitely one of the very best, most original and correct examples in existence. The car represents impeccable value for money when compared to the 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet, the model which superseded the 300 but still used the same floor pan, body and interior etc.The 300SE employed a fuel-injected version of Mercedes-Benz's new, overhead-camshaft, seven-bearing 'six' displacing 2,996cc and developing 170bhp (DIN) at 5,400rpm.The rear suspension featured Mercedes-Benz's hydro-pneumatic self-levelling system. Thus equipped, the 300SE was good for 120mph. When the 280SE ceased production in 1971, its passing marked the end of this long-established bodystyle.Today all these classic Cabriolets are highly sought after and the example offered here is perhaps the finest it has ever been our pleasure to own.Finished in surely the most stylish colour combination imaginable of Moss Green with Cognac leather interior complemented with a Tan mohair hood and with the much preferred automatic gearbox, here is a surprisingly driveable classic, offering the most advanced technology of it’s era with the last word in chic styling.Presented complete with the factory issue book-pack as well as the original buff log book. The file also contains a copy of the Summer 2015 edition of Classic Mercedes Magazine, featuring AUB 243E as the subject of the front cover story.
