Interesting 300ce. Have you seen a color like this?

This purple color/paint is something I've never seen on the road. Is this some kind of optional factory paint?

Looks like a factory color to me.

I've seen a 500E in a color very similar to that called Almandine red.

There is also a Bordeaux red that is very similar.

I believe you're right.
If you go to this site:http://www.202-freunde.de/
Click on " Daten W 202 " & then click on " Lacke ", you'll see some interesting colors.

In any event, I think this color, i.e. Almadine Red, Bordeaux Red, etc. is the color I'd most like to have on my Mercedes.

No kidding. I'm absolutely in agreement with you on this. In about 2 years of looking for a 126 coupe to buy, I only ever saw two of them in California, and neither one was for sale. Usually they are seen with Palomino colored interiors. Even signal red (fire engine red) 124/126 coupes were more common.

Seen more rarely than this color is "blackberry" a kind of dark purple to red (factory) color.

You know what? Someone on the ShopForum bought a 300CE (or E320 coupe) on ebay in blackberry within the last year. It was a very low mileage, extremely clean car, and it didn't go cheap.
