All MB Limo's up to 1966 are refered to as Daimler Benz's..... MB Does 
use the designation Benz....  As-In "Baby Benz" the 190......  Have a 
problem with it take it up with MB and their historical archives.....  
After spending 6 months of my life with these folks several years ago to 
shoot the MB 100 year documentary that is showing at the MB museum, I 
would tend to belive these people before anyone else.
