The Mercedes-Benz 600 was a super prestige saloon that could rival the Grosser Mercedes of the past. The all-new Model 600 made its debut in September of 1963 at the Frankfurt International Motor Show and it represented the state-of-the-art automotive engineering in just about every department. The well-equipped newcomer came powered by an overhead-camshaft, fuel-injected, 6.3-liter V8 along with Mercedes' first air suspension system with variable ride control, four-speed automatic transmission, all-round disc brakes, power-assisted steering, central locking, and separate air conditioning systems for front and rear compartments. The occupants in which it transported had multi-way adjustable seating powered by a sophisticated system of hydraulics that also operated the windows and assisted in opening/closing the doors and boot lid.

The 3,200mm version was popular and had seating for up to six passengers while the long-wheelbase Pullman limousine - which had a length that exceeded 20-feet and often carried Heads of State - could accumulate up to eight passengers.

Just 2,677 examples were built when production came to a close in 1981, of which 2,190 were four-door saloons, 428 were Pullman limousines, and 59 were landaulets.


This 600 Series SWB is an U.S. delivery example and one of 323 examples produced in the 1966 model year. It is an early example with the full Makassar Ebony wood binnacle trim and the early wheel covers. Its ownership history is fully known, and has been in the care of its current owner for the past five years. It was previously owned by Luis Pacheco in Portland, OR. One repaint is known before current ownership. At that time it was repainted in its original color of Dark Red (code 542). The black leather seats are original, as is the headliner.

The current owner had the car serviced and repaired as needed, including new air suspension components, hydraulic system was serviced and properly working, rebuilt the brake system, replaced radiator, serviced the engine and driveline components, installed 4 new tires, and rechromed both the front and rear bumper. He also refinished all the interior wood trim to original spec, including the steering wheel, replaced the carpet, replaced the door sills with new rechromed sills, installed a new set of window curtains, and serviced all the instruments. All this work was completed in March of 2014 with a total costs of $44,000.

This car has its original Fulda Diadem spare, a full hydraulic kit, tool roll, and the Styrofoam spare transport kit.
