Greetings from Peru

Hi, my name is Francisco and I live in Lima. I am glad to join Benzworld and look forward to sharing experiences with other members.
I own a 1970 280 SE Coupe (W111), which is in rather good sahpe, but needs a few things to be done. I will probably be coming back to you shortly with some questions on parts or repairs.
Best regards,

Hola, Francisco, que bueno conocerte!!!

You know, when I was married to a Peruvian woman I used to go back to Peru all the time. She was from Arequipa but had relatives all over Lima, so some of the neighborhoods like La Victoria, the port of Callao, Miraflores, La Libertad and others are well known to me.

Back in the 1990's DIVEMOTOR SA, the only Mercedes Benz dealer in Peru was in Miraflores and called Automotriz Del Peru SA.

You are probably looking at the only 1991 560SEC AMG in the world that still wears their sticker.

Here it was yesterday!! Of my 2 it is the car on the right.

I remember well the day in Arequipa back in about 1994 when by the Hotel De Turistas, where I liked to stay, seeing a beautiful old 1970 280C coupe, in dark blue I think, go down the cobbled street.

There was a film from Peru called Mancora (I think) last year that showed the star driving a 1977 230E he inherited from his papa, all the way from Lima up to the surfing town. A great movie and a great car!

Máncora (2008)

Please complete your profile and show your year and model of Mercedes and Lima, Peru in the CP
