Although Mercedes-Benz didn't offer a factory-built 300 C station wagon for 1956, that didn't stop one enthusiast owner from asking Mercedes-Benz to build one for her. This Mercedes-Benz-based 300 C station wagon was custom built to her specifications and was one of the Top 10 sales at the 2010 Gooding and Company Amelia Island Auction. Combining timeless Mercedes-Benz styling with the practicality of a traditional rear-wheel-drive American station wagon, this Mercedes-Benz 300 C truly represents the best of all worlds, classic looks, luxury, and unprecedented practicality.
