1972 Mercedes 300SEL 6.3 Owned by Steve McQueen
Spotted in San Francisco is a 1972 Mercedes 300SEL 6.3 Owned by Steve McQueen for $369,995 USD. The car is at San Francisco Sports Cars (dealer) and has an amazing selection of exotic cars. Anything Steve McQueen has sold for 3-4 times its market value. His son Chad McQueen recalls this being one of his favorite cars. It was registered to Steve McQueen’s Solar Production Company. Other paperwork securely places the vehicle in his ownership from shipment in 1972 up until his death in 1980. And his son, Chad, recalls the day this beautiful Benz was delivered to their home. It has a massive 6.3 liter V-8 Mercedes engine and was labeled the fastest production sedan of 1972. The Mercedes 300 SEL 6.3 is also unique as the very first automobile equipped with AMG’s magic.
Marque expert Kienle Automobiltechnick meticulously restored the exterior of this 300SEL. It was finished in 2013 and has been well preserved ever since. Great care has been taken to maintain the interior, and the leather seating is the very same that served Steve McQueen throughout his eight-year ownership giving you the rare distinction of enveloping yourself in the nostalgia of McQueen’s driver’s seat. It presents a beautiful patina, and is free of tears or cracks. The original wood trim, dash, and instrument dials are as-new.
