Sold for $48,400 at 2004 Vintage Motor Cars at Amelia Island.
Sold for $66,000 at 2010 RM Auctions - Automobiles of Amelia Island.
The 600-Series Mercedes-Benz was introduced in 1964. It was powered by an all-alloy 6.3-liter 300 horsepower engine with hydraulic and mated to a four-speed automatic gearbox. It had a comprehensive hydraulic and pneumatic system that powered the self-leveling suspension, assisted the brakes, and helped open the massive doors. It also smoothly and silently operated the windows, trunk, seats and sunroof. Standard equipment included power steering, an automatic gearbox, air conditioning and radio.
This example has been maintained both cosmetically and mechanically as needed, but is largely original. It has California black plates which, if they are original, could explain its rust-free condition. It has an AM/FM cassette, an altimeter and a chronometer.

It was part of the O'Quinn collection and has about $37,000 in recent mechanical work, including a major overhaul of heating and air conditioning systems, along with water pump, radiator, A/C compressor, a comprehensive top end engine overhaul, a rebuild of the hydraulic system including accumulator, power steering and power braking systems.

It is finished in silver with a black interior. The odometer reads just under 75,000 miles. The rear seats show some sign of minor cracking and aging. The front seats are in better condition, indicating restoration work at some point.

In 2010, this car was offered for sale at the 'Automobiles of Amelia Island' event presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $50,000 - $80,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $66,000, inclusive of buyer's premium.
