I wish I had one of these hidden away. It belongs to a friend of mine. Some PUB attendees may recognize some photos taken in my yard. In fact in photo #15 (BAT auction) you can see my Unimog 419 in the background. I put some shifter bushings in it and did some other misc. repairs. It is an exceptional automobile.

I can see myself owning one of these...wearing my Donegal hat and Knickerbockers, smoking a corn-cob pipe (maybe not that)... 8) ;D ;D

A very similar 1955 220 Coupe (not Einspritzmotor) won Judges Choice at the StarFest2018 Concours d'Elegance at MBUSI.  See cover of The Star, July-August 2018.  These are fantastically beautiful cars.
