Retracing History

Every New Year, people make resolutions! Some decide to be positive, others decide to lose weight, change jobs, travel…etc. One of my 2011 resolutions is to find all the possible details in relation to the history of my car before its 50th birthday on the 16th of February!
The information I have till now is the following:
 The car rolled out of the production line on the 16th of February 1961
 The car was sold by T.Gargour & Fils (the Mercedes-Benz agent in Lebanon) in 1961 or 1962
 The previous owner of the car is from the Soueid family from Btaaboura – Koura

I will start by contacting T.Gargour & Fils to check if they have any archives pertaining to cars sold in the 1960s, then I will contact the family of the late previous owner to try to know when he bought it, from whom, and for how long he kept it...

Stay connected!
