Natalis Timothy / Tanzania
I am located in Dar Es Salaam, a famous commercial city in Tansania. My specific location is in the Mikocheni Industrial Area. You just stop at a station called Kwa Walioba along the Old Bagamoyo Road.
This circa 1966 Mercedes-Benz Type W110 200 Heckflosse sedan (produced 7/65 - 2/68) was imported and registered in Tanzania in 1966. I do not know exactly when it was manufactured, but the engine and gear box have not been replaced! It has the following features:
- Every part is as it was made and operates as new
- Original German-made clock - still working
- Starts easily
- Twin Solex carburetors
- Capable of high speeds
- Brakes function well
- Everything on the dashboard is operational
- One front lamp was replaced, but the other works well
We thank Daimler-Benz for producing such a fine vehicle!
Also, I wanted to know who participated in manufacturing this car and, if possible, I want to know where I might obtain spare parts so it can be used for another 50 years. Viva Germany!
