My count shows 27 Berlines still exist. I didn't break down S/C - standard-with-without rear dash etc. However, there are 2 with extra long wheel base, 135"-136". According to factory production records, 27 were built as non S/C and 21 with S/C. A few on my list could be scrapped by now and a couple more could have been discovered but this figure should be very close. Each one is unique in it's own way. The standard color for the early Berlines was Geneva Blue with Blue wool interiors. 310009B was the first S/C Berline. I owned 10006b which was owned new by Vincent Bendix of Bendix Corporation. I have restored or serviced 8 to
10 of these limousines. I only know of one that has the rear dash with it's own seperate radio, most have a rear speaker and use the front radio.
The extra long wheel base models allow you to roll the back door glasses all the way down. I'm glad to see these special cars being restored and not used for parts cars.

Stan,

For the record, my Berline is number 10008B and it is supercharged, according to all who have been associated with this car, from the factory.
