6341 eng.jpg#6341 is up for sale on trading garage here in australia.  Im a bit miffed by this one, and buyer beware.  Its listed as australia, but has a euro oil cooler, no compliance plate, and no 625 option code on it -its a euro.  Also, they list 88000km, the last two sellers clearly stated this was miles.  The body looks ok in photos but closer not so great.  No chin spoiler, they have screwed some of the chrome trim on below the doors (arghh!).  The snake skin wrapping of the interior wood is appalling. Its previously been in Adelaide and then Darwin! I think John green worked on it at MB spares at one point too.  Previous number plates include snake skin dash bx85yq and then 541882.  Its been for sale in 2010 and 2016 . we will see what the auction closes at as its already 20k with one week left. Note the old pic I had of it when it had 5 spoke 'pentas' on

Also has a black reservoir for washer fluid.  Must be some kind of repop.

Hi Daniel,  The black washer bottle is just them painting it as it was likely just filthy.  Not sure why on earth people would do that rather than just clean it up!  We have different washer bottle reservoirs than LHD cars, and they are very hard to find.

just noticed, this Versions do have one water tank at the right side of the engine compartment, where I have in my European Version the ABS. My both Tanks are on the left side. How would it look like if your version would have ABS as well or was ABS not available in Ausieland?
happy having finally a 6.9 # 7271 in my garage, ...so nice to cruise!

nathan

This is a good question BMA, I have not seen an Australian delivered 116 with ABS.  The ABS was on 1980 models only I recall?  The water bottle was always located there on the Left side as the steering column comes down the Right side so it had to be moved.  Admittedly, isn't the ABS really tucked over to one side near the quarter panel and could still fit?

@nathan: ABS was launched end of 1978, very first car to present was a 6.9. From 7380 produced 6.9 worldwide only 200 were ordered with ABS!....Why?....Customers were sceptical and mainly the rich owners argued: "My Chauffeur can better brake than such a modern system"  ;D  I am not kidding! ....look at our W116-Daddy, showing the European 6.9 with ABS
