  • Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1968, the 300SEL 6.3 was originally conceived by Mercedes-Benz engineer Erich Waxenberger two years earlier. Waxenberger’s concept was simple; take the M100 6.3 liter V8 engine and air-suspension from the 600 luxury saloon and place it in the W109 4-door sedan design by Paul Bracq. Often considered Mercedes-Benz’s first true sports sedan, the 300SEL 6.3 offered maximum comfort mixed with legendary performance that challenged even the most powerful automobiles made in Detroit, Michigan at the time. The air-suspension ensured maximum driving comfort while leaving all four wheels firmly on the road while the M100 V8 engine provided more than enough power to satisfy the most performance minded customer. The 300SEL 6.3, while produced in limited numbers until 1972, was capable of cruising at speeds in excess of 120 miles per hour while seating five comfortably. This capability quickly caught the attention of the German tuning firm AMG who successfully campaigned several modified 6.3 sedans in the early 1970s. The 300SEL 6.3 was the Mercedes-Benz sedan that recaptured the imagination of the public. Today, it still finds its way into some of the most incredible collections across the globe.

    The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 Sedan featured here is finished in stunning Horizon Blue with an impeccably kept blue leather interior. This magnificent motorcar is among one of the finest examples we have seen in many years and is believed to have been driven just 43,871 miles from new. Accompanying this investment-grade 300SEL 6.3 is its original books, previous California registrations, data card and much more. It has been beautifully restored by marquee specialists and would make the perfect example to add any premier collection. If you have been searching for a 1971 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 Sedan, you will not find a nicer example than this incredible motorcar and we are proud to offer it to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who desires the best. 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, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% 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 and 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
