Hi! Vikram : Slightly off topic but your post stirred my memories and here are two or three more pics from that visit (Oct 2009) .

Two shots of the VW Carmann Ghia and one of the 170 A with a Morris (which one, I can't recall offhand) by its side .

Saw this week restored W114 last year. Looks fresh out of the factory.

Good evening all.
I cam across this rather nice Mercedes publicity photo from 1958.
Cheers

What a gem, thanks for sharing.

The location is Marine Drive Bombay, the building still stands, albeit not so pretty. I think at the corner of this same building was the Jaguar showroom of Garwares (Chowpatty Chambers?) Many people have mentioned how they used to see the star proudly perched atop.

I wonder if this car is accounted for. Incidentally there is a 300S with a registration number just 1 digit away, maybe they were company/publicity cars or the same owner.

Can anyone identify the gent in the passenger seat?

Karl,
The photo was in a 1958 Mercedes Benz magazine (Mercedes-Benz im aller Welt). They always had quite a lot of photos of all the MB products from all over the world. Carefully staged usually so probably taken by the dealerships. Tata featured pretty regularly then. This looks very staged to me with the Ponton beside it and the child, etc.
Cheers

Please excuse if this post is not line with the thread but Im wondering what the asking price would be for a good (needs restoration but most parts are intact and looks like very minor body work if anything) W110?

Thanks in advance chaps!

The registration number 786 is usually a favourite of Muslims as it is numerologic short rendition of " Bismilah .." and may indicate first ownership by a Muslim.
