1970 Mercedes-Benz 600 Series Pullman Limousine

  • Chassis Number: 100.014-12-001655
This Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman 4-Door Limousine is powered by a 6,332cc single overhead cam V8 engine fitted with a Bosch mechanically controlled Fuel Injection system. There is a four-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel disc brakes. The car was delivered new on May 29th of 1970 to Mercedes-Benz USA. It was reported to have been delivered new to Michael Pipella, with options that included air conditioning, an intercom system, insulated glass, and a Becker Grand Prix radio.

The Grosser Benz eventually made its way to Japan. The current owner acquired the car from Japan and began an extensive refurbishment and restoration of the machine between 2004 and 2014. It is currently finished in DB040 schwarz (black), its original color, with beige velour cloth interior. There is a period-correct Sony television and a cooler.
