Classic Car Overview

1959 Mercedes-Benz 300d Adenauer 4-door Hardtop. This Mercedes was owned by a serious Texas collector and oilman. This W186 was the companys largest and most prestigious automobile of that era. It was the Maybach of its day - elegant, powerful, exclusive, and expensive. Three versions were produced in succession. Also referred to as a "Type 300", the 186 was equal in features and price, but far superior in performance to the rival Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. Technology advanced, the Adenduar was regarded as the "drivers car", sharing numerous design innovations and mechanical components with the iconic Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, including engine, suspensions, and chassis. This limousine length 300d was very limited production automobile and this later model 300d featured sweeping changes that involved revised bodywork, fuel injection and a unique hardtop configuration transforming it into a pillarless phaeton. This Medium Red DB 516 car with all NEW Beige Nappa leather interior was purchased by the former owner/collector at the Gooding Company of Pebble Beach, California for his Texas collection. It comes complete with a 4-inch binder with the original owners paperwork, all correspondence, full maintenance records, original manuals, tools, and storage bags for rear quarter windows. It is mechanically perfect and recently had all new brakes including master cylinder and brake booster. This engine develops 180 hp.





This W186 6-cylinder 300d comes w/ a 50-page history binder of this classic with its complete service records. Overseas delivered from Daimler-Benz in Stuttgart on March 10, 1959, to a wealthy San Francisco couple. The selling dealer was Paramount Motors Inc. in San Francisco. It was equipped with Becker Mexico radio, Ivory steering wheel, power steering, automatic antenna, windshield washer, and two reclining seats. All numbers on engine and chassis are matching and all service records/oil changes from day 1 are contained and laminated in the Gooding Presentation Binder. Owner one sold this car in 1978 to a new owner in Palo Alto, CA. They moved it to their winter home in Naples, FL until my customer purchased it from Gooding And Company in 2018. We have maintained this classic Adenauer for the past 2 years. It runs as nicely as she looks. We have installed all new plug wires, new spark plugs, $15,000 worth of new light beige Nappa leather, including new front cover hydes, rear seat hydes, newly covered door panels, center, and quarter panels, plus all-new headliner. Other additions are re-vatted gas tank, newly rebuilt brake booster, master cylinder from White Horse restoration, fuel pump, transmission mount, fuel filter (OE) ignition coil, rotor, distributor cap, newly rebuilt original clock, and refinished mahogany wood. The deep red German glasurit paint is impeccable as is the chrome, carpet, and glass.
