At the 1963 Brussels Motor Show Coune presented this Estate version of the Mercedes 220S 'Heckflosse'. The car was received very well and Coune had envisioned this concept perfectly, because soon after Mercedes started development of such an Estate version of their own. From 1965 one could buy the 220S Estate at the Mercedes dealerships and therefore Coune's Estate remained a one-off. The car was sold to the US.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
