Not actually a Mercedes but it is a Benz. This is a 1910 Bez Limousine and quite the way to arrive in style. It had a 4 cylinder 4950cc engine and was considered quite advanced. It could almost reach 60 mph. 60 mph was considered unsafe even in the 1950s although almost every car could go faster than that. It was a mile a minute oh my.
This model was in the catalog from 1965 through 1973. Plus a rerelease in 1985. It was sold in this cream color from 1965-1968. It was green in 1969. After that metallic green and red in 1985.
The box on this is an E Box, the information is a bit hazy on Yesteryears. Luckily on the end flap it says "New Model" so that puts this example at 1965. I believe in 1968 it came in a window box.
Have a few more die cast cars to post. All of them are pretty good so stay tuned.
