Photo above from reference #5, page 144. The text says: "Since 1972 the Mercedes 600 (see W100 in all its variants) because of the US safety-regulations is no longer imported into the country which especially for the High Society of New York City and Los Angeles leaves an unreasonable gap in the market. This gap was filled by the "Horseless Carriage Shop" with a version lengthened by 81,3 cm to 6,12m of the Mercedes 450SEL (Mercedes W100 600 Pullmann = 6,24 m).
Edward Josey, owner of the shop, buys brand new 450SELs or converts customer`s cars. Despite length he offers some more things: e.g. colour TV, additional seats, maybe a small bar with refrigerator in the car`s rear - all to customer specification. For a complete 450SEL Josey asks USD 56.077".
