This Daimler Reitwagen was the oldest vehicle (by 16 years!) on the fairway at Pebble Beach this past August at the 62nd Concours d’Elegance. Though the forerunner of the 220 antique, classic and generally spectacular automobiles on display, the Reitwagen was rightfully placed in Class X, German Motorcycles, along with 12 other two-wheeled machines covering the period up to 1968. This is the first time the original Reitwagen has ever left the Mercedes museum in Stuttgart. Its metal parts, now 127 years old, are original, but the wood frame was replicated in 1906 after being destroyed in a factory fire in 1903.
