1968-mercedes-benz-250-21 This car was formerly used by Tan Sri Abdul Rahman Hashim the third IGP. It’s a 1969 W114 Mercedes Benz 250. The colour of this maginificent car is light yellow and red MB Tex interior. He was shot inside this car on his way back to his house in 1973 however, this car had been restored and repaired.

This car is a bullet proof car prior with the tragic demise of Tan Sri Abdul Rahman Hashim in 1973.  This car is a very heavy car prior with its extra thick glass. The photo below shows the interior of the  bullet proof car.1973-mercedes-benz-2306

During his office terms as the IGP, he also received a 1982 Mercedes 250 as his official car. The car is like brand new car and very well maintained.

I am glad and proud to own one when seeing these.

    I am not sure about that but according to the explanation given by the Malaysian Royal Police Museum authority, that was the car used by Allahyarham Tan Sri on the day he was gunned down by those subversive movement. They said that they had the car repaired. Perhaps u are right bro, it could be the second car for the IGP back then.

    I’m not quite sure, but I believe the car used by arwah Tan Sri Abdul Rahman Hashim (the car he was shot in) was registered BAF 9768 and of light blue colour. See here:

    Note the flagstaff on top of the grille, and the round sign ‘KPN’ above the front plate. I believe this car is the correct one and the official KPN car then.

    Unless, the car WA 6999 above is the second car for the then-KPN and was repainted in the different cream colour, then I may be wrong.

    Best regards.
