Ye Olde Mercedes

Henning Birkeland’s Mercedes Simplex

Henning Birkeland has built this wonderful 8-wide Mercedes Simplex produced between 1902 and 1909 by Daimler.  Look at all those angles and offsets, and the marvelous colour design!

It’s got everything a car needs – four wheels (plus a spare tire), a drop-top, and a crank. What has been improved since those days? I really don’t know … Oh yes, we have airbags. Show your appreciation on MOCpages.
