this widebody was listed for quite some time elsewhere ebay, cl, etc. It ultimately ended up on a used car lot. Do not know what happened to it after that. The seller claimed that it was a 6 liter but with zero proof and he always had a silly asking price attached.

From what I've read, the only real Hammer's are all 124's, numbered and are black. You could however send your car to AMG to have a 6.0 put in it and many did, but that wouldn't be a "Real" Hammer. Also, you would have to have ALL the components done that make it a Hammer, not just a 6.0. THere was a guy in Phoenix tring to sell a 1981 SLC 500 as a Hammer, which of course Hammer didn't exist until 1986 so it was sent after the fact to have the upgrades. I would think this white SEC is nothing but a decent widebody with some AMG upgrades.

I have several other cars, and am looking for a boat, and this car may be the ticket! Heres a couple of pics just for an idea of the condition, let me know what you think....

Well I am very surprised to see this thread after 4 years. I posted this thread over 4 years ago, and I must have changed email addresses, so I never knew others had seen my post and responded. I still have the car. I do know more about it now, but not much more. The engine is unfortunately a 5.6, doesn't even have AMG cams. All body is AMG, but I don't know and never even thought about the rear diff. I know it is LSD, but I don't know if that means that it is an AMG diff or not. Only obvious engine mod is the AMG headers, and cat-less stainless exhaust that was done "God knows when or where"

I find it humorous that people were quite critical of the pics and simple statements I made. I suppose that is what you deal with on forum sites. The pics were in fact taken with a cell phone camera, and were just so folks on here knew what car I was talking about, and not intended to be a sales presentation. Another reply on here found that to be "sketchy". Funny..

I wish there was more information on these cars. I have the data card for it, but that doesn't tell anywhere close to the whole story.

The forum search works, no surprise with 7 posts.
$38,000 a simple statement? At this point in time it probably qualifies as humorous.

You should reread the original post - high levels of attitude and hubris which turned out to be based on little fact/information. I'd say we, and I'm one of the reactionary posters, reacted accordingly.

If you post something and than dont bother to tend to it this happens. Your car is worth more after the 2 years since you first posted. Bad news I doubt its worth half of what you are asking. Collectors want stock if you are looking to sell to a person who has money make car stock. If you wana sell it to a teenager for 5K keep the chinese parts on it My personal opinion.
