Mercedes Benz maps.

Now when we buy a new Mercedes we get, along with several instruction manuals, a list of all the Mercedes dealers. But this was not always the case. Forty years ago each Mercedes came with four maps, each covering a part of the world: North America, South America, Africa and Asia. Every city that had a Mercedes dealer was rewarded with a red dot. It is interesting that a European map was not included...we can only assume that Europe was so awash with Mercedes dealers that there was no need of one.

RE: Mercedes Benz maps.

Ahhhh. Cool maps. I remember seeing MB of South Florida or something like that when we were down there. They had a couple of nice AMGs parked out front.

I as well had no idea that they existed. I found them in a pocket in the glove box that I had not explored for decades.

RE: Mercedes Benz maps.

In the '80s Mercedes in the UK came with a European road atlas (A5 size). It's packed with info including dealer locations and what type of vehicles they deal with; cars, trucks, Busses etc.
