Lightbulb wanted: 1968 - 1972 300 SEL 6.3


I am new to Mercedes classic cars. Had 40h birthday and a midlife car crisis. I want to get a driver car that I can drive to and from work in on highways traveling 55 to 65 mph. Expect to put 75 miles per day plus local traffic on weekends.

Found a 300 SEL 4.5 that I have on hold but was told that the 6.3 might be the better car for me due to the engine size and acceleration. Will the 4.5 engine be enough to pass a truck on 95 or do I need to look for the 6.3?

If anyone can help me find one of these I would appreciate it.

I would stick with a 4.5. The 6.3 is WAY too expensive to keep up! Better have $20k in the bank for maintenance! There are a lot of 4.5 out there for a good price!
