Who can help me?
« on: 11 January 2013, 01:51 AM »
Hello! I collect armored Mercedes Benz. Now I have only W126 armored( factory), and W140 armored (factory) My next mission isW116! I am from Ukraine , and we have got new low, that prohibits the importation of cars older than 15 years. In my dreams, I can find armored w116 WerkPanzer ( factory) somewhere in Ukraine? I know only one w116 (armored) in Ukraine. It's ex Silvio Berluskoni, and armored by Ernesto Pavessi (Am I right?). What about w116 factory armored? Maybe after falling of USSR, some criminals or politician bought some factory armored? If I will find factory armored somewhere in Europe, I have got one plan... I can send engine, transmission, body, interior separately , as parts. Who can help me? Maybe you have got friends in Ukraine, and they know where I can found w116?

That's pretty awesome!



In all seriousness, I find that fascinating. I would love to see how factory armored cars are designed.

Please help! I think this factory armored car is very simple... What about flagpoles, sirens, microphones, loud speakers? Maybe you know, where I can find factory armored car, that isn't simple, and one of 292...
Thank you!

P.S.: now in Ukraine this low about cars cancelled)) :)

How about asking the MB Classic Centre in Stuttgart? They have unlimited access to all production data, so in theory should be able to tell how many armoured W116s were made and where (but unlikely to whom) they shipped.
