This is a beautiful Franklin Mint Diecast 1904 Mercedes Simplex.

In 1904 Mercedes introduced the Simplex. Of course, "simple" meant five pedals, a spark advance, throttle lever, outside mounted brake lever and numerous switches, valves and handles to occupy the driver's attention. By the way, there was no windshield.
Simple would be a good way to describe the 1:24 scale die cast model by Franklin Mint. This early model has a surprising amount of fine detail. The front wheels steer and the hood opens to reveal the odd-looking engine with a decent amount of detailing. The finish is done in glossy beige with beautifully applied, fine pinstriping. Simulated wood-spoke wheels, bright red undercarriage parts, soft, leather-look seats, Wood above the engine compartment and lots of simulated brass-finished parts complete the package.

    You said that the music box was playing slowly..... Sorry to hear that, we offered you 20 Euros that we paid right away to your account and you agree with that solution.
    Not really fair from, isn'it?
