When the Strich Acht production run was over and accounted for, Mercedes-Benz had cranked out nearly two million examples. Of those, 1.9 million were sedans while less than 100,000 were the beautiful coupe version of the car. Of course, there are even more rare versions but these typically don’t come from the factory. We wind up with wonderful variations on a theme thanks to the work of coachbuilders.
Take, for example, this Binz Benz seen above. That’s a two-door pickup truck version of the W115. Mercedes-Benz actually saw a version of this created for the Argentinian market, and it was dubbed La Pickup.
I would be shocked to come across a W114 or W115 truck today. This has to be amongst the rarest version of my own car (a 1974 280 sedan).
What about your own vehicle? What sort of weird and rare variations exist? Sound off below!
