PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer what we believe to be the finest, lowest mileage, and best documented 300SEL 6.3 for sale anywhere in the world! This beautiful, correct, and highly original 1968 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 was magnificently ordered in the exquisite papyrus white over a blue leather interior. Making the specification even more desirable, it was also equipped with factory Air Conditioning and Sunroof (options rarely seen together on a European car). Further, having been ordered in Germany, it was equipped with the massively powerful 9:1 high compression, only available in European Specification vehicles. When new, this magnificent motorcar was one of the quickest and fastest vehicles on the road. It blew everything out of the water and was quicker 0-60 and had a higher top speed than a non-sunroof Porsche 911S! More staggering than that, it was faster in a 0-60 run than a Lamborghini Muira! This vehicle was the world’s fastest production sedan from 1968 all the way until 1989! The behemoth 6.3L V8 produced a staggering 300HP and 434lb-ft; in a sedan from 1968 these power figures are mind blowing.
What makes this vehicle truly worth owning is the level of detail and hand assembled craftsmanship that is present in no automobile currently produced. This magnificent motorcar was produced in an era when owning a Mercedes-Benz meant something significant. There was no such thing as a $299 a month lease on a new C-Class; ownership was reserved for just a select few. This vehicle was one of the most expensive and best overall vehicles available during its time. It combined the road holding ability of a sports car with the opulent appointments of the finest luxury cars. This was a vehicle for the most discerning individual to whom sacrificing any virtue of the vehicle for the sake of another was unacceptable.
Making this example even more collectable is the fantastic history that accompanies it. This magnificent motorcar comes complete with history back to new when it was delivered to its original owner on October 10, 1968 in Dusseldorf, Germany by Mercedes-Benz Kundendienst. It comes complete with all original books, with stamps and signatures from the original dealer for delivery and service. It was delivered to the next owner in the United States in 1986 and has a large amount of service records from that time. During the second owners time, he showed it in Hershey, PA where it won the coveted AACA Junior award! Making it even more special, this is the lowest documented mile 300SEL 6.3 for sale anywhere in the world. Most all of the others have well over 100,000 miles and the supposed lower mile cars have no documentation to support the mileage, whereas this one has everything, even the signed odometer disclosure between the 1st and 2nd owner verifying the miles! Further, the cosmetic condition of this vehicle is above reproach. The paint is gorgeous and has been recently redone to a very high standard in the correct and original papyrus white but the special testament to the vehicles condition is the stunning and 100% original blue leather interior! The car shows as a car a quarter of the age and is just magnificent original throughout. One of the main questions 6.3 buyers have is about the recent service and like everything else with this vehicle, it has had everything done. The vehicle also just received a massive service, which is described above and was well into 5 figures, no stone was left unturned and was done with an ‘Open Checkbook Philosophy’. Both owners have lovingly cared for this vehicle and have stored it properly, servicing it correctly, retaining service records, oil changing it yearly regardless of mileage, and much more! Offered for the true collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this extremely rare, low mile, top of the line, original, serviced, powerful, and first production year of this exceptional Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly amazing motorcar!
