That's a w126 with a body kit. AMG would not have put the Ronal R9s on the car, so those are after-the-fact. The suspension sits too high to be non-stock. Lastly, I have yet to see a modified 380 engine; they had lots of stuff to do to the 500/560, but in 380 form, not so much.

My vote (and I've owned four real AMGs) is definitely "not AMG". Perhaps more evidence could prove otherwise.

MB and AMG were totally separate entities in 1981.

The wheels on this car appear to be Ronal. Not correct for 1981. ATS was the manufacture for AMG then.

Body kit looks like AMG and the badge on the rear is correct for 1981 MY.

To my knowledge no records exists from AMG prior to MB taking over and.........
