![CDATA[
At one point in time, Mercedes-Benz built, arguably, the finest luxury automobiles in the world. In its post-war recovery, they shifted focus towards more practical family saloons, followed by cars of a more sporting nature. By the early 1960s, however, Rudolf Uhlenhaut felt the time had come for Mercedes-Benz to re-establish itself as a builder of ultra-premium models, ones where, in his words, ôcosts were of secondary importance.ö The impressive Mercedes 600 was born with its unconditional hydraulic system that operated the windows, power seats, sunroof, doors, boot, suspension damping and ventilation system. While lesser vehicles used electric motors to regulate many of these functions, the Mercedes-Benz engineers believed that if cost was not an object, hydraulic systems, would be smoother, quieter and longer-lasting.
This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a Mercedes-Benz 600 in need of extensive restoration. Imported from Connecticut USA, this Mercedes comes with a completed NOVA application and UK taxes paid. The bodywork and interior are largely complete and the vendor reports that the engine turns. A solid base for restoration, this 600 comes with many original panels and parts and we are sure would make for a very rewarding project for the new custodian.
