I wish I would need these parts:
https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-bestandsliste.html?userId=5422754

Looks like several items are NOS, and a NOS Vickers for 50euros?
Saw the (original) blue spark cable set that's hiding in there?
The oil pump is for V8
Not sure about the generator yet.
Have not dealt with this seller yet.

Don't see any oil pumps there, only an oil pressure damper.

Yeah, that one's funny :)
I've always wondered why they call it an "oil pump" in the EPC, even though it's a simple float in an air chamber, with a membrane on top of it.

I've pinged the seller about that Vickers pump. If indeed NOS, it's a steal at 50EUR. We'll see if I get a good feeling about them before committing.
Sometimes one just comes across people that actually have no idea what they're selling, and just want to offload it asap.

Stan, thanks for posting the link.

Those bumpers are correct for a US spec 6.9.

The 'fasten belts' icon, charcoal canister and wider radiator without oil cooler are also characteristic of a US spec 6.9.

The 85mph speedo was correct for some model years, can't remember which.  THe US members should be able to clarify.

All in all, it looks to be a tidy US spec car thats had euro spec lights fitted, which is a fairly common/popular mod.

My 300SD has the same black bumpers. They were removed from a USA spec 6.9. The 85 MPH speedometer (which mine also has) is supposed to be a 1980 model year thing. I'm not sure what it's doing on a 1979 6.9 unless it was made late in the year. It's nice that this one has front and rear seat heaters.

exactly the 85mph is from a 300sd the 6.9 speedo should be 160? its been changed and mileage is probably incorrect.
nice looking car though
