1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 SC
Sold for $275,000 at 2006 Gooding & Company Pebble Beach Auction.
This 1956 Mercedes-Benz SC Coupe is equipped with a 2996-cc overhead camshaft six-cylinder engine with Bosch Mechanical Fuel Injection that is capable of producing 175 horsepower. It has a four-speed gearbox and four-wheel independent suspension with coils springs and tubular shock absorbers. Since new, it has been treated to a professional restoration and finished in a dark-blue exterior. The gray leather interior and wood work have also been treated to a restoration that has brought them to concours condition.

The car came equipped from the factory with an authentic Becker Mexico radio, built-in luggage, and an optional folding rear seat.

It is one of only 98 examples produced. It was offered for sale at the 2006 Gooding & Company Auction held in Pebble Beach, CA where it was estimated to sell for $225,000-$275,000. The car was offered with a reserve, which did not seem to matter, as bidding settled at $275,000.
