The 300SEL 6.3 was for Daimler-Benz a milestone. It was a mixture of two cars that did not sell too well: the 600 and 300SEL and this e-book chronicles the complete story of the 6.3, 3.5 and 4.5 l versions.
Recently updated, it
- comes with a comprehensive Buyer's Guide,
- explains the Chassis Number and Data Card in great detail,
- discusses the price development until November 2016 and
- offers superb recent non-Daimler AG photography, which includes pictures of the suspension.
A separate chapter is devoted to safety guru Béla Barényi, whose concepts greatly influenced how Mercedes cars like the W108/109 were designed.
The author Bernd S. Koehling has over 25 Mercedes books and e-books to his credit. They cover cars from the 1947 170V to the 2012 SL R231.
