The story behind the car that picked up King Salman in Jordan

Among the majestic scenes of Saudi’s King Salman’s visit to Amman, Jordan, was the car he was picked up in that dates back to the 1960s.

The same vehicle was used in 1961 for the wedding of King Abdullah II’s late father King Hussein and his mother Princess Mona Al Hussein.

The 1961 Mercedes-Benz 300D was used to pick up King Salman at Marka Military Airport on Monday – as a gesture of King Abdullah’s appreciation for the Saudi ruler.
