Pebble Beach 2011 - 1915 Mercedes Model 28/60 HP

I was attracted to this beautiful Mercedes 28/60 town car by its interesting headlights. I never realized that some owners back then had summer/winter coach work that could be swapped over the same chassis. Apparently this one started life as a touring car and later on the owner had a town car body built for the winter. That is a vintage Louis Vuitton luggage set on the roof. I really can't do it justice here so go check out the video at Jay Leno's Garage for more on this unique car...

  1. You wouldn't believe how much of this car was not there when we started putting it together, a labor of love I must say!
