In 1951, at the first Frankfurt International Motor Show after the WWII, Mercedes-Benz unveiled among other new vehicles the top-of-the-line 300 series.
It was the biggest and fastest German car in production.
The 1951 model was the 300 it evolved in a series of models with several modifications. While the 1951 model was not named 300 a, the 1954 version received the 300 b name and the 1955 model was the 300 c. All of them had an open-top version named Cabriolet D. In 1957, a profoundly revised version of the 300 model was presented, which, technically as well as regarding its exterior, was clearly different from its predecessor. The design number W 189 confirmed a new construction with its own series for the model 300 d.
The body of the 300 d was updated, especially regarding the roof and the C-pillars. As well as the limousine, which, like its predecessor, could be fitted with a sliding roof or a partition wall, a Convertible D was also available from December 1958. It was much more expensive than the closed version, which led to a very limited number of units produced.
Despite being a convertible, the 300 d Cabriolet D featured an Artic-Kat air-conditioning unit on the options list. Inside, the car-maker installed new seats, with better support for the back of its occupants.
A big improvement was found under the hood, where an inline-six unit was fitted with a Bosch gasoline injection system in the manifold, instead of a classic system with a carburetor. It was fitted as standard with a 3-speed automatic transmission. A manual gearbox was on the options list. The four-door cabriolet version was produced in only 65 units.

This US automatic example has the Cabriolet D coachwork, which it has been fitted to an original chassis and original engine that were delivered as a sedan. Its trim throughout is in excellent condition, as is the beautiful woodwork in the interior, the Becker Mexico radio, its prominent AUTOMATIC badging on the transmission, and its clear gauges and lamp lenses.
