The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

A collectors dream!
By the late 1950’s Mercedes-Benz was looking for a replacement for the W186 300 series saloon as the company’s flagship. The W100 600 saloon made its debut at the Frankfurt International Auto Show in 1963. Developed over a seven year period, the 600’s shape was formed by Paul Bracq and Bruno Sacco. A technological marvel with an incredible array of power features and functions, the 600 was developed by engineers Rudolf Uhlenhaut, Fritz Nallinger and Karl Wilfred. Their simple idea was to ask how amazing a car could be with cost as no limitation. The aptly named “Grosser”, or Grand Mercedes, featured every possible power feature imaginable with an internal hydraulic system that operated everything from the windows to the trunk. Suspension was independently controlled at all four corners by an intricate pneumatic system powered by a one cylinder air compressor in the engine compartment. The engine itself was Mercedes' first production V8 with single overhead camshafts. Fitted standard with Bosch mechanical injection, the M100 V8 unit was good for 300hp and pushed the 600 to speeds in excess of 120mph. Craftsmanship was second to none with virtually every part of the car fitted by hand. The 600 was produced in two versions, the first being a traditional four door sedan with a 130 inch wheelbase and the longer “Pullman” version built on a 150 inch wheelbase. Costing over $20,000 new in 1965 (the equivalent of over $157,000 today) the 600 attracted numerous elite clientele including everyone from politicians, dignitaries, royalty to celebrities such as Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor, John Lennon, George Harrison, and more. The 600 was so ahead of its time that production of the model lasted until 1981 with very minor changes in its impressive 18 year production run. Only 2,677 were assembled, of which only a mere 304 “Pullman” limousines with rearward facing extra seats sectionalized by a power operated divider window were constructed. Today the 600 is highly prized by collectors and enthusiasts. Literally the Maybach of its day, the W100 chassis 600 is a perfect embodiment of what Mercedes-Benz strives for today: “the best or nothing.”
