Sold for $439,500 at 2022 RM Sothebys : Monterey.
The Mercedes-Benz 300 Sc was built in exclusive numbers with approximately 200 examples made across all three body styles (coupe, convertible, and roadster). They were introduced in September of 1955 and succeeded the 300 S which had been introduced in October 1951. While the 300 S employed a street-tuned, triple-carbureted version of the engine from the 300 SL racing car, the 300 Sc received a new Bosch fuel-injected variant of the 300-series engine.

This particular example is a 300 Sc Coupe, one of 98 examples built in this configuration. It was originally sold by the Mercedes-Benz distributors in Los Angeles, and originally finished in Blue (DB 320) over Gray (955) leather with Becker Mexico radio, automatic antenna, and sealed-beam headlights. The car received a restoration by Charles Brahms of Irvine, California during the 1990s. Throughout its existence, this Coupe has been driven 58,522 miles.

The 2,996cc OHC inline six-cylinder engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection produces 175 hp (DIN) and is paired with a four-speed manual transmission. The front suspension is independent with tube shocks and coil springs. At the back is a single-pivot swing axle with tube shocks and coil springs. The stopping power is courtesy of four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
