There was so much newness in the Corgi range in 1964, this one had the vacuum plated plastic trim and two brand-new features, opening windows and working windscreen wipers - wipers driven from the back-axle, wonderful engineering on a miniature scale. There were any number of 'By Special Requests' but this is the only 'By Repeated Requests' I've come across. I can just imagine (not) hundreds of young lads in 1964 writing in to Corgi saying 'we just must have a Merc 600 limo' We didn't even know it existed!

This is another unintended film tie in - it is the car driven by Daryl Van Horne in The Witches of Eastwick, now driven in short wheelbase form by Jeremy Clarkson

The car is found in metallic red and metallic maroon, both of which seem to be valued at around the same level. It was introduced in 1964 and remained in the range until 1969.
