Eid Mubarak All !

Hyderabad based w123

Mercedes w123 is arguably the best sedan of the twentieth century.

Actually, it is a Daimler not a Jag - what happened to all these cars?

Also I recall an article and pictures in an American auto magazine as to how it ended up in the US and was restored. Now, thanks to serious research by BHPians, we have a complete rundown on Late Sheikh sahib's three beatiful cars i.e. Cadillac V16, Duesenberg and MB !

Obviously, it passed on Sheikh Mukhtar.

More info below:

Especially for Priyo, I present this grab from an April 1955 filmfare magazine. Still shows the car sporting Holkar colours.

Enjoy!

Mercedes never made a 350 SEL; probably an SDL. Or the 350 is wrong. In any case, the logo is a crude local fabrication.

Someone is trying to fool buyers on OLX with Mercedes and Mustang at low prices.

http://olx.in/item/ford-mustang-1966-IDWRTLW.html

Buyers beware.
