The Mercedes-Benz 300 Series, commonly known as the 'Adenauer' due to its association with German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, was an exclusive and superbly engineered machine. The standard 300 was followed by the uprated 300 S, which was followed by the fuel-injected 300 Sc in 1955. Production of the Sc was very limited and just 98 coupes and 102 open cars were built by the craftsmen at Mercedes-Benz's Sindelfingen coachworks. They were well appointed with leather upholstery, wooden interior trim, and hand-formed panels.

This Mercedes-Benz 300 Sc Coupe left the factory finished in Silver Metallic (DB 180), with a black leather interior. It was first owned by J. Paul Getty. In the early 1960s, the car was purchased actor Joseph Sirola. The car would remain with Mr. Sirola for more than five decades. During that time, he drove the car to 28 installments of the Frank Sinatra Celebrity Invitational golf event near Palm Springs, California.

This coupe has never been restored and currently displays less than 75,000 miles on its odometer. The engine is a 2996cc SOHC inline 6-cylinder unit fitted with Bosch Mechanical Fuel Injection and develops 175 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
