The black paint on engine is a bit too shiny for me despite the "pop" it presents. I thought it odd he put the valve stem seals on before inserting the valves which could damage them. 3-5 photos of each item makes it tiring to keep viewing. Chassis # 649 and VIN 6235. I'm fascinated why chassis would hang around for several years before being built. Anyone know when they started putting the high voltage label on the air cleaner? And why the valve setting label that goes on one or ?two? valve covers are rarely seen. Never seen cotter pin clamps on radiator overflow hose before.Anyway looks great and owner seems to know what he is doing.

Regarding the cotter pin style clamps, Mercedes quit using those in 1968. This car should have the standard solid banded GEMI clamps.
