The Classic Car Gallery is proud to offer this beautiful 1969 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3. In its heyday this original “Bankers Hot Rod” was the FASTEST PRODUCTION SEDAN IN THE WORLD and would do a 0-60 in 6.5 seconds! With a straight line speed that was compared to the Porsche 911 and 427 Corvette of the time, she was able to run with the thoroughbred sports cars of the day while maintaining 4 doors. The muscular 6.3 winds out a staggering 300hp and 434 ft-lbs of torque and would surprise the unsuspecting at stoplights. All of the common problems that tend to plague the 300SELs have been taken care of. The air ride suspension has received a complete overhaul and works as it should. All of the components of the braking system have been replaced as well. Undergoing a complete mechanical and exterior restoration over a period of years she is sure to be one of the best on the market today. The european market exclusive tan velour interior remains all original and in excellent condition for its age. The wood paneling on the dash and other interior components are rich in luster and remain original. The exterior of the car has been finished in Dark Metallic Brown and shows extremely well with not many signs of road use. All exterior chrome shines brightly with no pitting or peeling. Overall the car is in extremely good condition, and will sure please the next who has the pleasure of owning her.
