Mercedes 600 Pullman 1974

In the beginning of 1970 a really high prestige car was missing for Daimler-Benz which could reach the famous Type 770 "Grosser Mercedes" from 1930 th.

1963 this emptiness was filled when model 600 was presented. This model was aimed to be used as a government car. The model was terminated 1981. At this time 2677 cars had been produced as the 600 series. 2190 of these cars were of the shown type. The car had a V8 engine giving 260 hp and could reach a top speed of 205 km/h.

 The 4 doors were produced 1587 copies during the 16 years the car was able to order. 1975 28 cars ordered. 590 Pullman got landaulet design. This mean that the roof of the car could be opened. All windows are regulated hydraulic.

Time to produce one car took 18 weeks of a limousine design. Those who worked with this must have 15 years working experience at Mercedes in order to qualify for this.

Mercedes 300d 1959.
Other Mercedes models.

300d was the last model from the 1960th 300 series. This type was the model called Adenaur. It became the symbol of the German wonder already 1951.

The 300d model was manufactured 1957-1962 in total 3077 copies. Most of them were exported to USA. It had a motor with injection system instead of carburetors which the first cars had. The motor had 6 cyl. and gave 160 hp giving a top speed of 160 km/h.

Mercedes 200d Cab 1935

Type 200 was produced between 1933-1936. Cabriolet C was produced the whole time, but changed 1935. 777 copies of this model were produced 1935.

Just this copy was bought by a jeweler in Kalmar and the car had the same owner up to 1969 and the odometer shows only 70000 km. The engine was a 6 cyl with 40 hp. This gave only a top speed of 50 km/h.

Mercedes 170 S Cab 1950

One of the first dream cars after the war was 170 S Cab A. There were 830 copies built between 1949 and 1951. It had the same engine as the closed one. Cab A had a prize of 1/3 more than a 4 doors model and was equipped generously with hardwood and leather as standard. With this Mercedes was in contrast with the tradition before the war. The engine was a 4 cyl giving 52 hp and a top speed of 120 km/h.

Mercedes-Benz Typ 600. Pope car.
See  my Mercedes site

8 cyl bore 103, slag 95, 6332 cc 250 ps
Type 600 was built between 1964-1981. It was manufactured with the latest technique and with what you say, regardless of cost.

Buyer was of course large companies, government and royal families. Among all I can mention shipyard managers drove around with type 600 between ship launching of oil tankers. One reason was of cause equipped with good space and refrigerator. These histories (without telling any details) I was told during my time at an engine supplier.

This particular car is called landaulet. It was delivered to Pope Paul VI. The uncertain suspicious thought is that he got it free for advertising purposes, otherwise it hadn't come back to Mercedes museum.

The special thing was that the driver was sitting isolated from the backseat. Only the normal window between. Pope was sitting in an armchair a little higher up and had a roof hatch over.

Just for Pope to be able to raise and bless the people. Places for 4 bishops (security guards round him in much simpler chairs. Note also the high up coupe part.

Fram King Fulda S7 1959

In the shadow of WWII the need for cheap cars was great. The German Norbert Stevenson constructed in the end of 1940 a small simple three wheeled car. It was named Fulda after the village were it was built.

The first prototype was ready 1950. Economical help had come from a Bosch merchant Karl Schmidt. Next prototype used corrugated sheet-iron,1953, and later a more rounded version covered with aluminum. The plastic variant was not on the market until 1957.

In Sweden one was allowed to drive these three-wheeled cars with motorcycle driving license. This was the cause why quite many was sold.

The first cars came to Sweden 1954-1955. They were license built by Nordwest-Deutscher Fahrzeugbau, NWF. The cars were imported by Sica-Import. NWF went bankruptcy 1955.

The Swedish motorcycle producer Fram-King started 1957 to build Fuldamobil on license. Fram-King had engaged one of the engineers from Fulda, Adolf Sandler. He had just developed a chariot by glass fiber for Fulda and suggested the Swedish firm to use that.

The frame was manufactured by Fram in Uppsala. The chariot in glass fiber was made by a firm Venplast, on the island Ven in Öresund. Unfortunately their production locals was set on fire and it was taken over by Fibre in Roskilde.

The Swedish car became a better product than the German. The production of Fram-Fulda continued between 1957-1962. Totally 411 cars were built.

Engine: One cylinder two stroke Sachs.
Volume: 198 cm³. Power: 10 ps at 5250 rpm.
Weight: 310 kg. Glass fiber chariot.
Top speed: 80 km/h. Petrol consumption: 0,25 l/min.
