your r129 AMG are all fakes....

Only one was made and it was at the geneva auto show and it was silver I know cause its the car I just sold.. with all red interior.. there is no other all red interior sl60's or sl500 amg 6.0l out there if your cars were real they would have all the emblems and true euro vin. and only euro cars had the factory rear seat... the rear seats are illeagle in the us, and the other r129s i have owned all have completly different vins than that of the euro cars.. or true slamgs.. people will copy vins off other cars and you may thing you have an AMG build code on your order sheet, but its from another car that has a cloned vin.. most of the jap asaian and euro cars are made this way in an attempt to fool people into paying 40k for a 7k $ car... the codes you mentioned for options... AMG wasnt a factory option in 1992 AMG was its own company until 93... so all mods were done aftermarket... aka like slp for camaro and roush or saleen for mustangs... THERE ARE TONS OF FAKE AMG ONLY POST 1993 sl60 cars were TRUE AMG OPTIONED CARS, WITH TRUE AMG OPTION CODES.. in 90-92 only option was HAVE YOUR CAR SENT TO AMG AND HAVE THE ENGINE AND BODY MODS DONE BY AMG AFTERMARKET.. IF THE ENGINES WERE bored out and are true amg cars.. they will come With : see pics... amg tips amg engine covers.. amg body kit amg 3 piece rims, amg body kit and all the amg logos.. not stickers or decals from japan that are pos copies but real amg logos again see pics, anyone can add amg crap to an sl r129 and call it a amg 6.0l but fact remains there is 1 92 hammer sl 6.0 amg 500sl and its mine... if your feelings hurt you have been duped, im sorry, buyers remorse sucks, weve all been there, some worse than others.. but if your feelings hurt now, they will feel even worse if you knew what i paid for the car and even worse, what i sold it for...

What a shame to see this once glorious car so haggard and dirty. I think a good cleaning and rearranging of misplaced body/engine components may go a long way to help the sale of this car.

Nice R129. A 500SL 6.0 is very rare stateside.

Just a few bits of clarification:

-A cooperative agreement was concluded between AMG and Mercedes in 1990.

-The first car developed in collaboration between AMG and Mercedes was in 1993. It was a C36.

-There is no official record of the number of pre-merger AMG examples produced, let alone color combinations.

AMG was a la carte. Customers could order full body kits, AMG/OZ 3pc wheels, suspension packages, interior wood packages, etc. independent of the power plant options available at the time. The same goes for the performance modifications. A customer could order a M119 6.0 and choose not to make any exterior modifications. Until Mercedes began incorporating said performance options within their build sheets, the only way to prove providence is through an official work order from AMG or one of their officially endorsed outlets, engine work included. Otherwise, the only way to verify the engine displacement of any example without documentation would be to measure.

There are a number of reproduced items available on the open market, some of which are in fact decals but the authentic AMG decals specifying engine modifications, spark plug specifications, etc are the same as those found on your example here.



But as you've pointed out, anyone could slap a decal and a badge under the hood and call it a "real" AMG.

Good luck with the sale.

check the rear of the engine for the block stamping - AMG stamped their M119's as such

The front engine compartment looks rather skewed - looks like the frame got twisted?

Most of what you just posted is completely false. Either someone lied to you or you just don't know what you're talking about.

- Where and how are rear seats in a SL "illegal"?
- The VIN of the other R129s you owned may be different because you are comparing US VIN #'s to Euro ones.
- 1992 was in fact the first year AMG option codes were visible in a Vin decoder. This was a "gray" period when AMG was going from a non-affiliated company to one that started to officially. AMG wasn't even fully under Mercedes' control until mid-late 1990's.
- The term "Hammer" does not apply at all to a R129 SL nor the M119 engine. So calling your car a "92 Hammer 6.0 AMG 500SL" is not correct either.

If you're going to be rude and go after people and accuse them of having "fake" cars... at the very least know what you're talking about and prove your arguments.

1989 Mercedes 560SEC
