There was an earlier thread where S-Class and I went off into the wild yonder in a search of an elusive 6.9. There were pics posted earlier of the engine, but at that stage we couldn't get access to the body.
I saw the body on Saturday and it turns out not to be a 6.9 after all. The chassis plate was missing, as were the bootlid badges, but I could make from the dirt around the badges that it was a "450SE 6.9". The car is a right-hand-drive and has steel springs throughout and you can quite easily see from the back door that its a normal SWB. Interestingly enough, the wood on the cubby lid is burl walnut with a neat little AMG badge on it.
So...a sigh of relief that this was not another poor 6.9 going to dust.
