Paul:

Did you note that (finally) the Romanian state landaulet sold at RM Auction recently. It was sold for $300,000 US, which I believe is about half the original asking price.

That car was a full laundaulet (2/3 uncovered).

My LWB is now on US soil, awaiting US Customs approval.

Gerrett,

You are talking about 1854.
It was sold on RM-Auction febr 2003 for $ 378800. It had then 23000 Km. It was Tito's "second" Landaulet.
As I am informed well it is now in south Germany. Black with tan leather and came out the Rolf Meyer collection. It is a rare sixdoor presidential / long softtop.

I am glad your new LWB-'taxi' is arrived yet .....
When I come the next time to the States I know who to ring for a taxi .

But I tought it might be time to present the landaulets I collected, in a "one view"posting, since you have spare time to update the register. 1/3 of the landaulets are now identified, which is not a bad result at all, I believe.

BTW, when can we see this new LWB section ???

Greetings to the "taxi-driver"

Hi Paul,

Congratulation for this great collection of pictures. Perhaps is Vin 894 with the white softtop the same like "ex-Idi-Amin"? Further I have a pic of another RHD Landaulet, which was delivered to an unknown africain state. I will send it to you.
Greetings Will

Hi Wll,

894 was from the president of Ivory Coast in Africa. So Idi Amin's is NOT 894. That are different cars.
We have to search on for that Amin's carVin.

BUT, I remember that once Mr van der Velde in Lokeren posted, he married in a Amin's Landaulet.......
Do I remember that correct ????
Then he is possible able to help us to find more about that Landaulet .....

I hope he will read this and would be willing to help us.

Hmmmmm,
I searched quick my database and found that picture .......

Note the "Wapen" on the thrunklid instead of the STAR.

Mark please help us ....





But this car seems to have a black softtop and red laether.
It could be Amin had also more Landaulets ......
Now we have sorted out 31 different Landaulets from 59 build.

During the visit from Queen Elisabeth to Berlin in front of the Brandenburger Tor ....

That is number 32 from 59 build ....

As Pompidou 1971 visited Cameroon, there were also two Landaulets.
A Black one and a White one.













That counts on 34 .....

Hi Paul,

earlier presidents of South Africa had a LWB laundalet. It is black, and now in the museum of Mercedes South Africa. Do you have VIN and photos? I can try to get some photos for you.

Kim Jong Il's 600


South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun, center left, accompanied by North's No. 2 leader Kim Yong Nam, waves from a open-top car during a motorcade in Pyongyang, North Korea, Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2007. North Korean leader Kim Jong Il greeted Roh in Pyongyang Tuesday to begin only the second summit between the two countries since the peninsula's division after World War II.
Sorry, no Chassis number.

Paul:

Well, it was (unbeknownst to me) a rerun, but that isn't the car to which I'm referring..

Chassis 1217, owned by Nicolae Ceaucescu, was sold in Phoenix in 2006 for $300,000, plus 10% buyer's premium.

Do you have more photos of "2283 ex Africa"? It's in a very bad condition!

This topic is amazing!

Regards!
