Now THAT is a Mercedes! Since they stopped offering body-matching hubcaps they are just not the same anymore ;)

Do you know when is the picture from?

Love it. I need to get me some flag holders.

The image caption says he was in office between 1974 and 1979. The 116 was introduced in 1972, with the 350 originally being the best engine available. The 450 came a little later, so assuming the pollies got the best, it will be a late 72 / early 73 car.
