Dealer Notes
A magnificent publication showing the Royal splendour of the Iraqi Royal Family and one of the finest cars of the 1930s, the Mercedes given to King Ghazi, by Adolf Hitler. Ghazi crashed the car and killed himself in the process. Most of the Royal family pictured were later murdered in an Iraqi nationalist coup d'état in 1958.
