the only Landaulet with raised roof, that I know is indeed the pope's car.

Here is a pic of the visit to Kenya, but not a Landaulet :

I am pretty certain that the Queen never owned a Landaulet

That statement is imho correct.

quote:
I know for a fact she rode in the first 600 Landaulet during her state visit to Germany in 1965.

If that was the first Landaulet I doubt, because the first Landaulet had no chrome ring over the airintake at the rearwheels but a chrome airinlet between the softtop and bootlid ….

quote:
That car was for sale with Mechatronik but is now sold.

That car you mention was in factory ownership till 1972 and then sold to Paris and from there to Africa. That car was indeed the first build in 1965, but is NOT the same car. That car QE was driven was kept in factory ownership and driven with the same Licenseplate after 1972 … As far as I know it is still in factory ownership. That is the car with pics equiped with sidesteps for safetygards ..

quote:
I just need to know if there are any other Landaulets which the Queen may have rode in during a state visit to any country she’s been to, as long as she rode in a 600 Landaulet.


QE was driven in West Germany in a Landaulet with short softtop.





QE was driven in Berlin in a Landaulet with long softtop.





Note te missing chromeparts on the {fake} airinlet on the first build Landaulet (had foldingseats like a 6door version) ..




See Licenseplate (same as QE was driven in West Germany)
