awesome 1969 600 Pullman W100 chassis

the owner dropped off this car late in the evening for service, he is a long time customer. he owns a Maybach that seems to stay at the dealer more that at his house, but its great to see that he will bring this old beauty out once in a while.

I wonder if the lifts are strong enough to hold the car?

Awesome car!

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Yah the lifts we use will hold that car no problem also a G-wagon no problem, we sometimes lift a Maybach 57 when needed. A Maybach 62 that would be a no.


I checked out the W100 before I went home, has the cleanest 6.3 liter engine I have seen. there is about 140k on the odometer. I could not stop looking at this car... simply amazing.
