One of my friends in the Twin Cities Section Mercedes-Benz Club has decided it’s time to sell a couple of his cars. He just put this beautiful 1969 300 SEL 6.3 liter sedan on eBay last night (CLICK HERE TO SEE THE eBay AUCTION). This is one of just 1,839 300SEL 6.3 liter sedans officially imported to the United States between 1968 and 1972.
This particular car is orignal and unrestored with just over 61,000 miles on its odometer. It is the nicest old Mercedes sedan I’ve ever seen, essentially perfect in every way. During the M100 Group meet held in conjunction with the MBCA German Car Fest in 2007 this car won the “Best 6.3” award. There are more than 85 photos documenting the car included in the eBay auction.
Bottom feeders need not apply, this car will pull good money from a true collector somewhere, given the strength of the Euro to the dollar these days, it wouldn’t surprise me if this one ends up with a new owner in Europe.
