1956 Mercedes-Benz 300Sc Coupe

Yesterday, Carter featured one of Mercedes-Benz’s pre-war greats, the 540K Cabriolet A. Offered in coupe, sedan and cabriolet forms, this was the ultimate status symbol of 1930s Germany. It was fairly amazing, given the devastation of World War II, that German industry was able to get back on its feet so quickly and produce a vehicle like we see here, the 300Sc. While a lot of the technology that was put into this car drew on pre war technology, this was truly a successor to the magnificent and ornate 540Ks of two decades earlier. A bit baroque in appearance for the 1950s, this model would lend its fuel-injected engine into that Mercedes-Benz icon, the 300SL Gullwing. This example for sale in California is one of less than 100 produced, restored to concours condition.
