Found. The long search for the elusive period correct wheels as originally optioned for the AMG wide body is over. I want to thank the fellow enthusiasts that have sent leads during the search!
BTW, what's the "MHN" on the speedo?
How reliable are the W126s? I see some come up once in a while and there's something about driving an old flagship that interests me... however I'm certainly not interested in a potential basketcase
Idle control unit solder circuits often tire and needs replacing.
Cruise control unit solder circuits often tire and needs replacing.
Fuel pump relay, use only Genuine MB unit.
As with all aging vehicles, make sure all electrical connectors are periodically checked.
It's a wonderfully robust, well engineered vehicle overall.
might be too much work for meThe body is rusted through in several places, and has several additional rust spots that are not through yet - we addressed those and the failed paint by filling the gaping holes with urethane expanding foam and treating the entire car to a plastidip. It looks a bit like primer, but is a rubber textured coating. Mechanically, the car is solid, though the brakes are about used up. The engine is strong, but we left the thermostat out when replacing the water pump. A/C and heat work. The factory radio needs a code, and the factory wiring/amp need some attention - better to go aftermarket audio anyway for the effort. Other recent repairs too numerous to list, but "a good home" means dealing with scarce parts and fixing things that are a surprise. If you want to go hog wild, a drive line overhaul will give you a very capable burnout machine - expect to replace clutch packs in the transmission and LSD with 600SL V12 parts. Otherwise, it makes a fairly reliable beater that runs strong and shifts clean. The interior show the age - She's a '90 with almost 300k miles. I'll share some pics on g+ in a bit.
