Thanks for those pictures from the Shah's Landaulets, which are slightly better as what I had. I forgot to list them.

No, I have no additional pictures of that 2283 car yet. As far as I am informed, this car is in retauration at this moment. I haven't seen the car. The owner prommessed us more pictures as soon as the car is completly restaured and not eralier then that.
I am trying to get in contact with the new owner for about a year, but could not reach him yet. Probably because a wrong emailadress ......

Counting now 37

In a very big book about Mercedes 600 appear a Landaulet belonged to a Malasian Sultan. It's blue (we can count 38 ).

And we can count too Nasser's Landaulet and North Korea's Landaulet.

What are the pics that you have of the Shah's Landaulet? Can you post them please?



Regards!

The first picture during the wedding from belgian prins Filippe, was the factory-Landaulet, which in earlier times was often hired by the german governement.
That is the same car which was used during the visit of the pope in the past with the highstanding plexiglas roof.

Shown just before the G-Wagen.

Hi Ron,
I saw that film on youtube also after Mike Trei put the link in this website.
But I could NOT catch a picture of that landaulet then. So your pictures were the first useable for me to store.
At this moment the stored pictures already overtook the 1,5 Gigabyte and there are only 18,5 % from the cars catched .....

year------prod----Vin----Pict
1963--------3-------3------3
1964------107------32-----20
1965------408-----112-----72
1966------323------61-----40
1967------159------52-----46
1968------223------66-----46
1969------336-----105-----79
1970------236------62-----46
1971------237------72-----59
1972------210------59-----44
1973-------82------12-----10
1974-------52------10------8
1975-------42-------5------4
1976-------47-------3------3
1977-------55-------5------4
1978-------40-------7------5
1979-------53-------7------6
1980-------44-------5------4
1981-------20-------4------3

It is a big job to find new ones, regsiter in a database and to archive-store those pictures of cars all correct. But it is with help from many sides and people interesting `stuff` .....

Hi Giovanni,

I have that article in digital form, and there is stated it was by Kienle at that time from publishing. So I just checked it.

In that article is stated that that white Landaulet belonged to the president of Sierra Leone (since 1972).
That car was used on his visit in France in 1980 and stayed in France and was then sold afterwards to an american owner (Chairman koreanian Electro-concern). He parked it by Kienle for services.
I must have over-read that part

So, now you have to find for us that Vin of Idi Amin's Landaulet

Nice pics Paul. I remember Idi Amin was a '67, chassis should be 10xx, tomorrow I will start research in my archive....
Branthomme from France might have further landau VINs.
