Description

For sale is a wonderful example of legendary Mercedes 300 SEL 6.3, MB factory code W109 E63, mother of all modern AMG 63-series.Sought after combination of electric sunroof and air-condition. Repainted 2011 in classic navy-blue colour code #904.
First stamp in warranty book made by a Las Vegas Mercedes dealer in April 1970.
Performance still pretty surprising for unexperienced drivers. Automatic gearbox including "kick-down" is working accurately. I only used kick-down at a speed of 50 mph in order to be nice to drivetrain. Still running 220 km/h on German Autobahn representing 137 mph.
Car comes with 5 Fuchs-alloys in correct size of 6,5'' x 14'' and 5 Michelin XWX tires. 4 additional factory steel wheels equipped with 195/70 winter tires.
I purchased this car from a collector in California in 2010 with 55.000 miles (odometer) and took it to Germany for a deeper technical restoration. The interior has been done completely in the U.S. before shipping.
- new leather seats, armrests, B-columns and lower window-frame in blue leather OEM-quality
- new velours carpets and isolating mats underneath
- new headliner
- grey alcantara interior for glove-box
- restoration of all Macassar ebony wooden parts (dashboard, door trim, window-trim) at Madera Concept in Santa Barbara
This mechanically excellent Mercedes was rust-free when I purchased it, so only a few conversions to European standard had to be made e.g. removing sidemarkers and license plate lights. In 2010 a thorough mechanical inspection has been made at HK-Engineering (specialized on 300 SL coupés and roadsters) followed by restoration and maintenance works on
- fuel injection pump (full restoration with galvanized parts including detailled report)
- renewal of water pipes
- engine valve adjustement
- oil-maintenance of axles and gearbox
- air condition with refill of modern-standard liquid
All cylinders with good compression (report can be shown). Only 2.000 miles driven after restoration.
Air bellows are in good shape; main air valve (engine compartment) will be done before shipping.

I have to let this beauty go for lack of time and space and decided to offer it back to the US-collector's market. It has seen Mercedes Benz plant in "Sindelfingen" twice in it's life: 1970 and 2010.
I can assist with shipping, however all costs for shipping, handling and tax must be carried by buyer.
If you need further information and pictures, please don't hesitate to ask !
Happy bidding !
