280SE 5.0 -a little story how (not?) to swap a 5.0 m117 light alloy engine followed by a four speed slush box into a vintage Mercedes, 280SE w108. To make things more ticklish the whole procedure will be carried outdoor during the winter months. OK, admitted under a roof -Oh boy aren't spoiled?
That's plain nettle but the car is absolutely dope!
What color it that? I want it! give it to me!
1952 Mercedes-Benz 220 W187 Sports ...
First time I learned about this 1952 Mercedes-Benz 220 W187 Sports Saloon Conversion was over 15 years ago. The legend has it was converted with Lancia B20 influenced body relatively early in its life due to an accident.
In 1972 Daimler Benz was contemplating on updating the existing 600 to W100F by adding w116-like elements to the car. 1977 they went on to build a prototype w100FL with an array of elements imported from w116 as well as w123
Ich sammele seit fast 40 Jahren alte Mercedes und auch andere Europäische Fahrzeuge.
Ab 2020 sollen viele dieser Wagen wieder nach Deutschland kommen, komplett, fahrbereit, restauriert oder in Teilen, je nach Nachfrage und Bedarf.
