J.G. Francis, proprietor of Mercedes Motoring, helped to get the family heirloom from its location in the Engs' garage back onto the road. He worked with care and dedication on the restoration of the Mercedes-Benz 300 d, even after the repair of the interior showed itself to be far more demanding that he had imagined at first. As so much work went into the car, Robert and Janet Eng are now overwhelmed by numerous enthusiastic classic car fans who want to buy the impeccably restored vehicle. One particularly noteworthy fact: the "Adenauer Mercedes" today runs with the same parts it had in 1962 – and thanks to the painstaking, careful restoration, runs at least as well as it did back then.
