A dream for the Mercedes-Benz collector or enthusiast
The magnificent 1964 Mercedes-Benz 300SE Sunroof Coupe featured here is finished in stunning Silver Grey Metallic over an original red leather interior. This exceedingly rare factory right-hand-drive example was sold new to a businessman in Singapore and later accompanied him to his home in Ontario. Having just recently been released from single ownership, this W112 coupe retains its numbers matching engine and its original leather interior with a mere 20,759 miles on the odometer. Showing a sympathetic respray, this 300SE could very easily be taken to the next level of presentation, or could be driven and enjoyed as is! With only 706 300SE coupes and convertibles built in 1964, this documented right-hand-drive example is one of very few built and is likely one of only a handful in existence today!

History of the 300SE
The 300SE, internally known as the W112, was first introduced in 1961 as a sedan. The new model wore the same body style that was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1959. Exterior improvements for the new model included wider chrome trim on the sides in addition to the wheel arches. Under the hood the M189 3.0 liter inline-6 fitted with Bosch mechanical fuel injection produced 160 horsepower. A state of the art pneumatic air suspension system was utilized (the same system later used in the 600 Grosser) while 4-wheel disc brakes ensured adequate brake performance. Coupe and convertible models were introduced in 1962 and examples built after January 1964 gained an additional 10 horsepower. Selling at nearly twice the price of a 200 series model, the 300SE was the most expensive "standard" Mercedes-Benz of the early 1960's, with the exception of the 600 Grosser that was first offered in 1963. The quality, comfort and performance meant that the 300SE was a frequent sight at some of the most exclusive destinations on the planet.
