I suppose I am indirectly knowing about this car,the owner asked me once for pictures of a LWB 600 Landau so he could build a conversion.
And yes it is in Auckland but as it has been a long time since I was there the old place has changed somewhat.

That could be more /better the case .... while a 4 door is offered.

The Crayford-CREATION was a 6 door .... (as far as my database teaches) duh ....









So we can't call it "landaulet number 60", nor "Crayford", nor "AMG"
We keep it simple : www . number1 . co . nz or the Blackmore-conversion 4door Pullman.
We also know the 6 door Pullman Crayford-conversion and
the Traussel-SWB-Landaulet-conversion.

David Blackmore's Landaulet is now in Ebay and he mentioned there the Vin of the car. It is indeed the Vinnumber of the Crayford-conversion ....... So I was wrong .....

Picture during that conversion by Crayford:

Hi Will,

So Chris is that possible the one you got info about ???

In the Feb 10 issue of Automobile Magazine on page 100 is a report about Landaulet 100.015-12-001129 sale at auction. The sale price was 523,446 which is astonishingly high considering the picture. The car looks almost stripped and in need of a huge influx of cash to make it roadworthy.

The original sale extimate was $65K to $100K.

By coincidence, I have learned that my friend had imported a Landaulet back in the 70s.

http://ajp.cocolog-nifty.com/tommyzz/2009/01/post-5b58.html

The blog is in Japanese, but if you scroll down, you can see the Landaulet in white (now assumed to be in south Germany) before it returned to its home country.

Hi Soon-Sa,

Thank you for the link from the Landaulet.

But in my opninion there are shwon TWO DIFFERENT Landaulet cars.
The first is with the japanese licensplate and differs from the second and third picture with the french licenceplate.





which is NOT the same car as the french car (two foglights and missing mirror on the right frontwing) This french car had a BROWN leather interior:









We would be very glad if you could get more and extra info from that japanese licensed Landaulet shown in the first picture (which seems to me to be the earlier restaured ex-Mobutu's Landaulet (with a white leather interior).

with kindly regards.

Hello,

I`m sure, those are two different( look the mirror at the right fender) cars, but I`m not sure, whether the japanese Car is an Landaulet. Next time I will public the Landaulet of the president Luxembourg, I think this an unknown.

Hello Paul,

As you said, I also think that the first 600 and the rest are two different vehicles. It said on the blog that the first 600 which he took in exchange for another car triggered him to collect various limousines.

I may meet this person in the near future.
If I do, I will ask him for some detail.

Hello Paul,

here one pic of a Landaulet of the the state Luxembourg during a state visit of the french president Pompidou in 1972. I had never known, that Luxembourg owns a Landaulet, but may be. The other pic shows the president of kenya in his Pullman.

Greetings Wilfried

Hi Willfried,

it is possible, that the luxemburger Landaulet is a only for that visit hired workslandaulet .... Just as the belgian King did for the wedding/mariage of his eldest son .... In that case it will be the same car as which was used as QE visited Germany (Nurnberg??).

Btw, the white Landaulet, from which I found those additional interior-pictures, is there no additional info in that article about the time of printing or any info from the Landaulet shown in the background ??

greetings from Holland

Hello Paul,

I agree with you, it`s possible, that this car is the "Werkslandaulet". It seems to be a "basic Landaulet" without headrests in the front and rear. Perhaps you should compare with the other Landaulets.
About the white Landaulet: this picture was printed in "Mercedes Benz in aller Welt", issue Jan./Feb. 1971. The Landaulet in the bachground could be the Nr. 1634 M. Glass. I hope you can translate the french text or some member of this forum.
Greetings from Germany
