  • Mercedes-Benz’s redesigned 300 models of the early 1960s, known internally within the company as the W112, featured fresh, new slab-sided styling, as well as an all-aluminium, overhead-cam six-cylinder engine, advanced and comfortable pneumatic suspension, and automatic transmission as standard equipment; a manual gearbox could still be had optionally, but it was seldom-ordered. Selling at nearly twice the price of the lower-level 200 series, this was the most expensive “standard” Mercedes of the early 1960s, outside of the custom-built 600 models, and it was a regular sight at the world’s most exclusive locales.

    The 1966 Mercedes-Benz 300SE Opera Coupe featured here is finished in gorgeous Light Beige with an impeccably kept original black leather interior. This magnificent motorcar is an original California car that still retains its original black plates. Accompanying this investment-grade 300SE Coupe is its original owner’s manual, logbook, tool roll, data card and more. Over $10,000 was spent during a recent complete servicing, ensuring that this car drives and performs like new. To come cross an example such as this and in stunning original condition is truly a great find. We are proud to offer this wonderful 300SE Opera Coupe to the most sophisticated collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates and understands the potential of this great marque. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com


    * Rates vary depending on year of car, length of term and credit score.
