High Compression 560s in Australia
« on: 14 April 2017, 04:58 AM »
So I'm trying to get an idea of the numbers of M117.968s in Australia and this is what I currently know:

10 in total.

1 x WA,
1 x NSW,
1 x SA,
1 x TAS,
1 x QLD (wrecked),
5 x VIC (incl 1 wrecked LHD).

Further detail:

WA: Update, navy ext, beige int, seat heaters, orth frt seats, rear blind, full hydro,

NSW: Black ext, split rear seats, rear blind, full hydro removed,

SA: Unknown apart from the fact it exists,

TAS: Update, split rear seats, advertised a while ago,

QLD: Grey int, wrecked to be a donor for something else,

VIC: Update, silver ext, grey int, split rear seats, frt seat heaters with orth, full hydro,

VIC: Champagne ext, burgundy int, rear SLS removed,

VIC: Update, black ext, black int, seat heaters, rear SLS removed, LPG,

VIC: Update, black ext, nil sunroof, no SLS,

VIC: White ext, navy int, seat heaters, orth frt seats, LHD, wrecked.


Anyone able to add to the list???

What about the HC 500SELs; another thread?
1979 6.9 #5541 (Red Bull)
1978 6.9 #4248 (Skye)
1979 6.9 #3686 (Moby Dick)
1978 6.9 #1776 (Dora)
1977 450SEL #7010 white -P
1975 450SEL #8414 gold -P

i think you will find there is a lot of these Mark, imported far more frequently than 6.9s

i have an ECE 500 engine in the Gwagen (although reverted to K jet for the 4wd simplicity), i also have a 560 ECE block.
i imagine the full hydro 500 i had was also ECE high comp.
again, there would be plenty of these about.
you can see the Gwagen engine number at 43 seconds https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNKMQfTCvnc&t=8s

i message you about 126 struts too, not sure if you got the message
regards
