This 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300S cabriolet is the only open car that Pininfarina built.

They wished to improve upon the 1955 Mercedes 300S Cabriolet by incorporation the finesse and elegance they saw was missed by some in the original design.

Coachbuilder Pininfarina had the habit of introducing a number of special bodied cars each year at shows as a styling exercise.

A company showcase was featured to attract orders from the industry or individual customers.

The original owner, Mrs. Margaret Flick bought her 1955 Mercedes and went to Pininfarina to build her a special body as a private order. When the car left the factory the color was DB 221 Effeugruen (ivy green) with gray leather and a gray-green soft top. It was also the only Sedanca style 300S ever manufactured.

Mrs. Flick registered the car in Firenze, Italy and drove it until she sold it in 1972 to Mrs. Dorothy Mary Kielty of Minnesota (USA).

Mrs. Dorothy Mary Kielty also had a residence in Firenze Italy and had the car there until the automobiles last registration in December of 1982.

She then sold the car to Paul Volker of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

The car is currently presented in DB 004 midnight blue with tan leather.
