Mercedes 300 cabriolet  interior

Mercedes launched its first post-war full-size luxury model in 1951, the 300. The 300 was a large car by any standards and competed head-on with other top marques such as Rolls-Royce and Cadillac. The 2996cc six cylinder 300 came with a choice of either standard four door Saloon or four door Cabriolet bodies.

The 300 Cabriolet had an impressive body of substantial, yet graceful proportions which were popular with many foreign heads-of-state at the time. The fully lined hood was enormous and featured large chrome plated "Pram Irons" at the rear. Mechanically the 300 Cabriolet was identical to the 2996cc 300 Saloon models. The 300 Cabriolet remained in production until 1956.
