    The 12/55 hp / 300 model is known as a Landmark in the history of Mercedes as it was the first passenger car model of the newly formed Daimler-Benz Company to be marketed under the Mercedes-Benz brand name. The spacious, well-appointed body made the Pullman 12/55 hp the ideal family tourer for those that could afford it. Many satisfied customers reported, it was a great car for travelling through the Alps! This Type 300 is one of the first made with the M7456 engine. It is an open touring car with Sindelfingen body and a very rare limousine top (comparable to a modern hardtop but the difference lies in the windshield installation). The car has enough space for 6 people and for luggage storage, there is even a separate add-on case and a luggage rack. With the car also comes the fabric foldable roof, if you want to take the black top section completely off and install the foldable roof. This will give you the flexibility to drive this Mercedes as a saloon in Winter or a very nice Open tourer in the Summer. This Type 300 was first bought by ‘Pflugbräu’ in Rottweil and later found its way into the far north of Germany where a dealer from Kiel discovered the car in the coach house of the brewery. In the last war and postwar years we know that car has been converted to wood gas and equipped with a trailer, this for keeping up with its heavy service in the brewery. It still had the original sign of the French occupation zone on the car. When it was acquired in 1982 it was restored to bring it back in traffic in 1986. The top, which you can take off, was restored much later and the whole car was brought back to its original dark blue / black colours and black upholstery. During this remarkable lifetime, the car is still matching numbers and has still all the originals parts with it like the oilcan in the engine compartment. The trailer is an original Westfalia trailer which was fabricated in 1935. Drive to Goodwood in style anyone? Not much could top this for fun with family or friends. Pure Class! http://www.historic-competitionservices.eu/nl/mercedes-benz-12-55-ps-pullmann-limousine-with-westfalia-trailer
