******************************


The Golden Angel Wing is a beautiful display

and showpiece, as much as it is an automobile


With so many custom and celebrity autos, television shows, magazines, and tours

in existence today, a person might easily think that this highly customized, 1959

MERCEDES-BENZ 220 was a recent creation. More than a few people are surprised to discover that infact this uniquely designed automobile was actually created (essentially as you see it today) nearly 25 years ago.


This very distinct, and elaborately detailed Mercedes-Benz automobile, titled the

“Golden Angel Wing” was designed in this manner during the early 1980s. It was

opulently decorated in the style of an ornate Arabian palace,as a gift to be given to

a member of a prominent Royal family.


Though the particular details are private, as circumstances would have it, the Royal family member was also an admirer, of three time world heavyweight boxing champion,

Mr. Muhammad Ali, or Muhammad Ali Clay as the champ is more distinguishingly known as.


Ultimately, the Royal family member arranged that the very ornate auto should be given to Mr. Muhammad Ali as a gift.


Mr. Muhammad Ali owned the “Golden Angel Wing” for about 2 years during the mid 1980s, graciously allowing the highly embellished auto be displayed and exhibited,especially for good /humanitarian causes.

although Mr. Ali has had no involvement with the automobile since it left his ownership, his concern and sincere well wishes for humanity continued on, even into his last stated wishes regarding the embellished Mercedes-Benz, that it should be


“ displayed / used in a manner that will benefit mankind .”
