Vehicle History:

This late series 300SE cabriolet was listed for sale in November 2013. The description was as follows:

This W112 300SE cabriolet is a fossilised representation of the motoring industry of yesteryear. A time when each car was handcrafted, and not one exactly the same.

This particular car has been restored and is perfect as a daily driver. The restoration was conducted approximately 10 years ago, so this car is NOT concourse.

If you are perusing this ad, then I am sure this piece of rolling artwork doesn't require a lengthy introduction. One of only 708 built globally, one of 92 RHD's ever made this rare beauty is finished in a gorgeous metallic green with a sumptuous cream leather interior, contrasting piping and rosewood matt finished timber trim. This is the car you have been looking for. The soft top is in impeccable condition. Exterior has been re-sprayed, bumpers have been re-chromed, new badges etc.


  • drives perfectly- mechanically works well
  • New ivory steering wheel and centre cap
  • Leather coachwork in great condition
  • Becker radio (very rare)
  • Exterior is aesthetically faultless

The not so Good:

  1. Column shift was removed by previous owner- replaced with floor shift and a later gearbox- would need to be converted back to be considered concourse. ( $2k approx)
  2. Matt veneer timber- is not an 'original' spec,although pleasant and visually complimentary to the rest of the interior ( $1500 approx to remove and spray clear gloss)
  3. No bonnet insulation- easily sourced. ($150)
  4. Self levelling suspension has air leak and drops if not driven ( takes a few mins to level once car is started) (cost??)
  5. Rear view mirror is not original ( plastic instead of chrome) ($100)
  6. Two buttons missing from Becker radio ($100)
  7. There is an pan-air conditioner system, however it is not working- and I haven't looked into it. $2-$3000 approx?)

I have only one other comparable car to reference in terms of positioning the price, which in my opinion is immaculate ( concourse), asking $195k.

I have chosen to realistically price this at $150k considering the above points. I believe that it would take another $7k-$10k approximately to get it to concourse standard, restoring certain aspects to original spec.

Reason for selling- I have 3 other cars (as a collector), and funds are required to finish off other projects. I also don't drive this very often so it deserves to go to someone who will get more enjoyment out of it.
