LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1970 Mercedes Benz 300 SEL

Powered by Mercedes-Benz’s venerable M100 6.3-liter engine, the 300 SEL was certainly worthy of the three-pointed star. It was an engine born and bred on the racetrack and is still considered one of the finest Mercedes-Benz engines of all time. The 6.3-liter V-8 was able to get the substantial 300 SEL to a top speed of over 130 mph and sprint to 60 in less than seven seconds, an extraordinary feat for a luxury sedan in 1970 and still respectable today. Adorned with the finest luxury fitments of the time, the 300 SEL was for those who sought the finest in automotive refinement.

This exceptionally restored example of one of the greatest luxury sedans ever created, has benefitted from the care of one dedicated custodian for over 20 years. In 1998, the long-term owner acquired the car from the second owner and entrusted Precision Coachworks to complete a concours quality restoration. Robert Platz has completed many award-winning restorations of significant Mercedes-Benz automobiles including multiple 300sl’s.

During the process the body work was refinished in Midnight Blue while the interior was trimmed in Parchment leather and burled wood. German Auto Specialists also contributed to the restoration by helping restore the mechanical and chassis components. The total restoration took over 16 years to complete and with receipts totaling over $160,000 USD.

The 6.3 must be one of the coolest sedans ever built. This one being completely restored by a marque expert, is a great example that can be both shown and driven. You can comfortably take four people around in style with the performance to back it up!

About Mercedes-Benz
In 1886 Karl Benz built Benz Patent Motorwagen widely regarded as the first automobile. Little did he know this was to be the beginning of the world's most renown premium car manufacturer. -Mind you the venture was financed by his wife Bertha Benz.

Not too far Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft founded by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach, started marketing their car in 1901 using now famous name:  Mercedes (Spanish for godsend), which was chosen after their distributor Emil Jellinek's daughter.

To make a long story short, Daimler merged in 1926 with Benz & Cie., becoming Daimler-Benz and adopting Mercedes-Benz as its automobile trademark

Although deemed by some conservative the truth is actually quite the opposite, Daimler-Benz history is filled with 'firsts': Honeycomb radiator, float carburetor,   four wheel brakes 1924, (although Duesenburg Model A was reported to be sporting them as early as 1922), first diesel powered passenger car in 1936, the Mercedes-Benz 260 D,  first direct fuel injection in the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing (well not really as tiny 2-stroke Gutbrod actually had the first direct fuel injection) )  front and rear crumple zones ie. safety cell by Béla Barényi patented in 1951 and introduced in “Ponton”-models , Anti-Lock Brake system (ABS) was first offered on the W116 450SEL 6.9, first production airbags...and the list goes on.

During its 100+ years Mercedes has produced more than a fair share of iconic cars; SSKL , 710 SSK Trossi Roadster, 770K Grosser, 540K Spezial Roadster, 300SL Gullwing, w100 600 Pullman, w111 280SE 3.5 Flachkühler, w113 230SL Pagoda, w109 300 SEL 6.3, w201 2.3-16 Cosworth to name just a few.

One should not forget the famous Silver Arrows (Silberpfeile) either: W 25, W 125, w154, w165, w196 all of which were more than capable of trashing their opponents on the track.
