My work-in-progress. This is going to be a beauty ;)
Some pictures, Unfortunatly, the car is dirty
Proof the car actually does exist! It was even driven today
pictures of my W116
I will try and keep a decent picture diary of work done towards weekend driver mode.
280,000 kms One family from 79-2011
Bought in March 2011 from the grandson of the original purchaser. Only modification is removal of self-leveling rear suspension system and replacement with new coils and shocks.
A Deutsch Engineering Masterpiece with a French Name
my first classic car, without any blood & sweat spilled at all. Previous owner spent a fortune shipping it from HK to MB Germany (2000-2003) to restore the glory of this beauty. Colour was Blue/Blue but now Grey/Grey (my kind of colour anyway).
My '76 350SE
My first Mercedes, a very original 1976 350SE with only 31,000 miles up when I bought it in Aug 2010. After some under-sealing and new tyres, she's ready for some summer driving.
this album shows my w116 20 years ago when i was 3 and of the car now (owned by me)
WIP on 350
The rims are FONDMETAL 8jx16 ET11 and fit quite well, obviously designed for S classes of the era.
1975 280S White
ZAR 1975 280S White. This car was unfortunately stolen in 2014, but I am keeping the pics of her up here so she is not forgotten!
Unrestored & pristine.
A very clean 78 I picked up recently. Almost perfect in every way.
A completely original example, with just 13,000 miles from new and one owner from two months old. This Mercedes Benz 450 SEL has a full service history from the supplying dealer, Mercedes Benz of Bristol.
1978 280 SEL W116
My Magic "Old Timer" 1978 280 SEL W116 in perfect condition.Owned for 1 year 360,000 Klms and running like a Dream.
Stunning 1979 280SE very straight and original no rust, no accidents, This car is for sale @$3,500 no longer reqired.
These are pics of a 1978 280 sel paid au$550.00
Has traveled 354,340 klms and is rust free a few surface spots in boot and under seat but thats all I could find .Has a dents in rear doors not bad one small one on one side and bit bigger on the other rest of the body is great paint could be better but ok for age. Inside is good needs door trims sun faded and small cracks on top and a little touch up here and there to look like new again.
First pix of my not so new 6.9
It's 2007 and I thought that may be it's about time I bought a digital camera. So naturally the first pix I took are of my beloved 6.9. In summary it's number 2062 off the production line, was made in 1977 and shipped to Hong Kong. There it served a top barrister. In 1997 it came with him to UK and languished in a stable together with race horses. In 2002 I took ownership from the original owner. I have done no major reconditioning although there is always something that's being fixed or worked on. Amazing machine.
