They get a bit grubby after years in a shed





Anyone notice the different door frame interior trim?

Once, on my car was the same blue interior with flat door cards. Original 1973rd year, the early series with a foot of water supply on the glass, and chrome accents on the steering wheel.Today in the car beige vinyl and fabric in a cage, as to restore the original interior was impossible because of the lost parts,

Anyone notice the different door frame interior trim?



It's a "standard" trim, as defined by Mercedes-benz: available with cloth and MBtex, while velour and leather has only the "De luxe" trim, with the curved profile of the panels. Of course, "De luxe" could be ordered with cloth and MBtex, too.

Another difference was introduced in 1975: leather combination was both seating and panels before that year, changing to the seating only from 1976 on.

That's a fine combination, dima: white paint with beige internal trim. Also, it's a very good trim & seating status: beige is easy to get dirty, but your one is almost like new!

Dima,

That interior is very good.  I can only imagine how you feel as you shift into high gear on one of your Siberian adventures.  What is the longest trip you have taken with the car?

On holidays on the Gold Coast at the moment and on Friday night with the Broadbeach Market going there were lots of cars cruising about.  I saw a white W116 stretch limo with W126 wheels, but only saw it once and didn't have a camera handy.... damn!
