The Mercedes-Benz SC models weighed nearly 4,000 lbs but were capable of 112 mph, putting them on par with some of the most expensive, limited-production gran turismos on the market, all while enveloping their occupants in serene luxury.

This 300 Sc Coupe was built early in the model's 98-car production run. It was delivered new to an American buyer in two shades of green. Little is known of its earliest years, the Sc was discovered in the mid-1980s in Minnesota, owned by a sugar beet farmer. It was purchased by Chuck Brahms. Soon thereafter, still in need of a restoration, it was purchased by a Southern California Mercedes-Benz enthusiast. The car was stored by the collector's friend Robin Onsoien, with the understanding that Mr. Onsoien would one day perform a concours-level restoration on the car for its owner. After twenty-years in dry storage a full restoration was begun in 2007.

The car was trimmed in Belgian-sourced hides and installed tan headliner and carpets. The engine was rebuilt, and scores of factory-correct parts were sourced from the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in Irvine. The exterior of the car was refinished in metallic burgundy.

The car has been driven just 350 miles since its restoration was completed.

The car is equipped with SL-type alloy-rimmed wheels, dual spares and two pieces of Karl Baisch fitted luggage in the trunk.
