This magnificent motor car was built especially for singer Roy Orbison, in December of 1971. Roy used this pretty woman sparingly for special occasions. Only the lonely Mercedes had only 1800 miles when Roy died December 6th, 1988. The lonely limo remained in as new condition with 1800 miles until December, 1997, when Houstonian Charles Tate acquired it to use on special V.I.P. occasions in New York City where he maintains offices as well.
Mr. Tate is now offering this pristine celebrity car at auction in hopes that it will become part of a major automobile collection that can be enjoyed by many.
