      I can't express how awesome this car is. It just needs some professional photography.

      Does it ever. I'm sure someone would want to shoot it. So beautiful, and that interior is a m a z i n g.

      I like seeing the "Paradise Valley Motor Co" frame, I saw that in the trunk way back when... I think that was custom made, I don't recall ever hearing of such a place. Young Motorcars, 811 N. Scottsdale Rd in Scottsdale, was the local authorized AMG outlet as per AMG advert in an '84 issue of Road&Track I have.

      The Phoenix looks brilliant as always.

      quick update:

      The AMG modified 5.4 litre M117 has returned home! AMG modifications include AMG cams, solid lifter conversion, lightened valve train, port and polish heads, bored cylinders and stroked crank which provide the additional .4 liter displacement. AMG offered this and .2 displacement increases prior to Mercedes introducing the 5.6 litre M117 in 1986. Aside from the AMG cast 3 piece 32 valve heads, this was of biggest performer AMG had to offer thru 1985.

      Damn, straight pimpin'

      I could just hear the theme music to Miami Vice.

      Oh, please arm that thing to the teeth so it won't get stolen. GPS, fuel cut off, battery cut off, heck get a detachable fitting for the steering wheel, chain it down to a freaking tree when park, any extreme measure so some scumbag won't take it.

      I'm still on the lookout for a set of AMG Five Spoke Road Wheels aka Pentas in a unique size and offset specific to the W126 Wide Body. 9JX16 et0 and 10JX16 et-12.7.

      If anyone has a lead please drop me a PM. Thanks!

      Out of curiosity, which yard did you find this thing in? (the original donor, anyway)
