Yeah, I don't bother with the dealership anymore. It's cheaper to pay somebody to fabricate.

I like that velour interior and wish I had one instead of leather.

Hello everybody,

Today I bought a 450 6.9 with a very special, kinda weird color green.

The plate on the car is mysterious too.

The car came was originally a factory car and comes with some interesting original letters from the Mercedes Benz management.

In these letters in among other things it is stated that the car was fitted with seats with code name 126 which was a unknown code back then. And indeed the car has funny seats that look exactly like 126 seats as they were introduced in '79.

What strikes and moreover puzzles my most is the color.

Can somebody tell me more about this car?

Regards,

Paul

Hi Paul,
there are a couple of ways to attach pics.
one is to use the www.w116.org site but i never learnt how to do this.
second is to use another site like www.photobucket.com which is what i do. its free, you upload the picture and then copy the link which is very easy and paste this at the end of your post. the only downside is that if you ever delete them off the site, they will be lost from a thread.
have a go and ask q's if needed.

WOW you've done so well so far and that turbo is huge!  Have you thought about how to route the exhaust and intercooling?  Why have you removed the inlet manifold?

I assume you're relocating the battery, but what about the alternator and AC compressor?  Do you intend to stick with the conventional springs n shocks, or carry over the 4 x SLS from the 6.9?

Inlet manifold is removed for few reasons:
*to clean up and paint engine under manifold
*drill injector holes over to standard size (in cyl head)
*modify intake for 80mm (internal measure) throttlebody

Exhaust has to be divided in two after turbo + body needs to be modified

mech. fan drive will be removed,radiator moves towards engine and then i should have space for intercooler

Ac is not going back on this car,no space for that,alternator stays in its place

I dont like SLS ,that was one reason for bodydonor
