Gallery Junction is pleased to offer this 1965 Mercedes Benz 600 Short wheelbase Sedan. When the W100 Mercedes-Benz 600 limousine was introduced at the Frankfurt International Auto Show in 1963, it replaced the venerable W186/189 Adenauer 300 and was aimed directly at the Rolls-Royce Phantom V.It was the first Grosser, or grand Mercedes, since the pre-war 770K , and was Mercedes-Benzs first V-8 powered car. The 600 was a stunning design, powered by a new 300 horsepower, 6.3-liter, fuel-injected, SOHC, dry-sump engine. The styling was a collaboration between Bruno Sacco and Paul Bracq, and the design has certainly stood the test of time. Despite its size, the 600 was a very capable road car, able to cruise at over 100 mph with a top speed of 135 mph. It has been a California car since the late 70's and wears its California blue license plates.
It is believed to be just a three owner car from new. It does run and is an excellent candidate for restoration as it is a seemingly complete car as pictured.
