There are few cars I geek out over more than the Mercedes-Benz 600 and all of its crazy variations. There is just something about the ”money is no object” philosophy with these cars and the seemingly endless options that were offered. One of those options was the factory Pullman body that turned this sedan into a limousine. Wildly popular with celebrities, industrialists and heads of state, these offered the best the automotive world had to offer with seating for six. Today’s car, a 1964 Pullman for sale in Germany, was built for and used by the largest industrial manufacturing company in Europe: Siemens AG.

This 1964 four door Pullman looks to be fairly standard in terms of options with no really crazy modifications. No built in bar or center throne to be found in the back of this one. The only interesting thing is that the front seats are the amazing blue leather and the rear seats are a light velour. It does look like it has a center glass divider which makes sense given its original purpose of being a corporate car. Outside, the front fenders do have the flag pole bases which is a little odd if this car was ordered just for Siemens, but there is no backstory and this car could of been first used for something else. The rest of the car looks to be fairly well sorted with nothing out of place that I can see.
As you might have guessed, these are not inexpensive cars in respect to both purchase price and upkeep. The buy-in on this one is $430,000, which is about the norm for a nice Pullman that is ready to go. Problem is with these Pullmans is that they are several hundred thousand dollars and require a ridiculous amount of care just to let them sit in your collection. I’ve said this many times before, there is no faking owning a 600. You have to be ready to drop several thousands of dollars even for minor stuff and tens of thousands for any kind of major servicing. Is this one worth that kind of cash? I really don’t think so. Does it mean I love it any less? Nope.
Just like you, I fawn over the Pullman. Must be in bread in our Soviet genes. To me, it’s THEE ultimate status of luxury, pier, craftsmanship. Nothing can match these in the entirety of that combination. Even chassis designation of w100 appears significant and apart from others. 100 as in 100% true MB. It’s my dream car to own, just to have it available to sit in, to see and touch handcrafted interior… I get the velour on the passenger seats as they don’t get too cold or too hot but mine would have leather from stem to stern. Alas, this is another reason to play the Power Ball.
Couldn’t agree with you more! I actually owned one of these in ’65……..I was eleven and I believe it was a Corgi….that and my Jamed Bond Aston with the ejection seat! Been there…done that.
Bet you wish you still had them
I had the Corgi JB Aston Martin but even then I couldn’t afford the 600 😉
