Krul - My Mercedes has a black base with holes and no seats!  My German Marklin book from 2002 lists 4 versions.  1 plastic with seats and 3 metal.  The metal ones had silver baseplate, black, and then black with 'Made in Western Gewrmany'. That's all I know.

Marklin Mercedes 300

I obtained this “Adenauer” Mercedes in repainted condition black over the original blue paint and I firstly planned to restore it in blue again.
But as I could not find the right shade of blue I sprayed it in silk nearly black.
With a little bit of detailing, I think, it obtained a nice distingushed look.

I see them now and as I wrote you Nicely done and I really like the satin black paint job. Really suits the car well. What year model is it based on? An old girlfriend of mine back in high school had a Mercedes 180D, I think. Four door car but small motor and boy, did it stink. I think it was a late 50's car. Was fun to drive around in. I do remember the wood grain dash and it was very comfortable, leather seats and all. The engine was not too loud but is was not a nice smelling car. Diesel fumes.

Thanks Jim,

I think this model is based on the type W186 which was built in the 1951 - 1957 period.
Looking at the small rear lights I guess it is an early type.
But maybe there are "specialists" among us who know exactly.

Best Regards - Wolter.
