I have been asked a number of times "Is this car Right Hand Drive", the answer "Yes, it was delivered from the factory with right-hand-drive".
In the book "Essential Mercedes coupes Cabriolet's and saloons 1953 to 1967" James Taylor remarked whether the price differential of more than 30% was ever justified in terms of value for money for the 300SE (over the 220 SE) is debatable, but around 500 customers a year were prepared to pay it.
This car features an all alloy 3 L engine, and had a top speed when new of 190 km an hour which is 118 miles an hour. It is easy to recognise this particular model designation as it is unique in having the chrome waistband and chrome wheel arches as standard features.
- The 300SE model was one of the last hand built Mercedes
- Only 270 right-hand-drive models were produced (unconfirmed)
- This vehicle was a styling triumph for Paul Bracq
- It has an all leather interior
- Air suspension is a standard feature in this model
- 14 inch wheels although I believe when initially supplied it had 13 inch wheels. (debatable, may have always had 14")
- You will notice the speedometer has the higher rated top speed
- This model features the all timber binnacle which of course was hand crafted using carefully matched timber veneer
- This vehicle also features a courtesy light delay, very sophisticated for its time!
This is a work in progress, photos will be added and more details will be available. A few International car-freight companies have been listed.
