Sold for $140,000 at 2021 Bonhams : Amelia Island Auction.
This Mercedes-Benz 300B Cabriolet is equipped with a 2,996cc single-overhead camshaft, inline six-cylinder engine with dual downdraft Solex carburetors, and developing 125 horsepower at 4,500 RPM. There is a four-speed manual transmission, four-wheel independent suspension, and four-wheel vacuum-assisted drum brakes. It is one of 59 300b Cabriolet Ds produced in 1955.

This Convertible D was delivered new to the United States and has been in its present ownership since 1963. It was purchased at a repair shop on the Jericho Turnpike in Long Island, New York, where it had been sent by its then-owner, a TWA pilot who regularly parked it at Idlewild (now JFK) airport. It was purchased for the sum of $2,225 and became his daily driver for the next twelve years.

By 1975, the car was in need of restoration and the work would eventually extend into a 12-year saga. The car was put into storage in 2014 and only recently emerged from its slumber.
