This is the third version of the Owner's Manual (Operating, Maintenance and Service Handbook) for the DS420. Like the first version E1017/1 (1968), this handbook indicates that it serves the limos from the very first chassis numbers on (RHD:1M1001, LHD:1M20001). The second version (1017/2) was not very different from the first one (1017/1), and is not shown on this web site.

The cover, shown above, looks similar to the cover of the next version E1038/1 (1974). It has the same hard cover style, but its size is about 1 cm. larger in both directions (22.5×16.5 cm).
