|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
'Papa' Benz donated the original car to the Deutches Museum in Munich in 1906. Since that time, a series of working replicas have been manufactured with considerable attention to detail and accuracy.
This example was built in Yorkshire, England during the 1980s. It was later fitted with period coach lamps and the fitting of a step from an early horse drawn carriage.
It has dark green framing and ironwork, varnished wood platform and wooden tool box and many brass fittings. It was offered for sale at the 2007 Bonhams Important Sale of Collectors' Motorcars and Automobilia at the Quail Lodge Resort & Golf Club. It was sold for $46,000 plus premium and tax.
