One of only 53 examples built, this 1956 300Sc Roadster exemplifies what has become known as the most desirable and collectible post-war Mercedes-Benz Grand Tourer
The most desirable and collectable post-war Mercedes-Benz grand tourer, this 300Sc stands out for both its rarity and exceptional quality throughout. As one of only 53 examples built, this model is the most rare of the 300Sc body styles. Prior to the current ownership, this exquisite example was restored by 300S specialist Charles Brahms, one of the most widely respected restorers of the 300 S and Sc automobiles in the world. Brahms restored the car for Richard Freshmen and the car ended up residing in the well known collection of Chairman Lee of Samsung Corporation. The interior of this fine example,a rich burled walnut pattern, accentuates the dark blue exterior finish exterior to perfection, complemented by thick, correct leather in a medium-brown dye shade. Given its particular originality, color combination, and quality of presentation, as well as its rarity and specification, this example offers an exceptionally desirable source of prestige and enjoyment to any serious collector of Mercedes-Benz automobiles.
With less than 60,000 miles on the odometer, the car recently was thoroughly gone through and carefully detailed to add even a few more levels of freshness to an already exceptional restoration. For color combination, rarity and overall quality…this 300Sc Roadster is nearly impossible to top and would be a fine addition to even the most discerning of Mercedes-Benz collectors stables.
