For the second installment of “ON THE ROAD,” Belstaff and MR PORTER follow Mercedes-Benz specialist J.G. Francis on a ride in his 1973 250C Coupé. Francis makes a living off vintage Mercedes restorations. Having owned about 400-500 cars in his life, Francis explains how the featured 250C Coupe is his favorite car that he’s ever owned. Set in the vast California desert, the short video is truly awe-inspiring and is accompanied with an eloquent narrative by Francis about the pride that he takes in his art, which is fostered by his love of fine auto craftsmanship. Check out the video above and head over to MR PORTER for more about the project.
