When introduced in 1963, the 600 restored a custom of offering opulent luxury and ultimate cachet of the Mercedes-Benz marque last seen with the Grosser 770 of the 1930s. Having no immediate predecessor, nearly all components were designed just for the 600 with cost being no object. The 600s feature a unique adjustable and dynamic load-leveling air suspension along with an intricate hydraulic system that powers everything from seat movement down to the fuel filler door. It was the first Mercedes-Benz to have a V-8 production engine, the M100. This 6.3-liter fuel injected engine makes 300 horsepower providing this 5,400 pound car robust performance. Arguably the world's most luxurious car in its time, it was the preferred choice of royalty and governments around the world.

This particular car is presented in its rare - reportedly, only one was made - original color combination of moss green exterior, and red leather interior, earning the nickname at Mercedes-Benz of Die Weihnachts-Automobil, or 'The Christmas Car.' Though original provenance is uncertain, with this unique color combination and short wheelbase, it was unlikely to have seen government service. This car features low original mileage of fewer than 29,000 and was one of the last 600s imported into the USA. Past owners included a Florida industrialist and international businessman, and a California Mercedes collector prior to entering its current owner's care. After restoration, the car has won both AACA first Junior and AACA First Senior awards in addition to other awards at regional and national Concours d'Elegance.
