Hey George, What is with the ride height of your burgundy (?) 280 SE 4.5?

Looks a wee bit tall in the saddle I'd say.

RE: Vintage Forum Official Photo Gallery

I don't know? My grandfather bought the car new in 1972 in potomac md. when he died my father got the car, and I recently got it from my father. As far as I know he hasn't had any shocks or springs put on it.
I just got the car so I'm still getting to know it. What do you consider the saddle? front ,rear or middle? Its definitly a 72' 280 se 4.5 though.
Thanks for the reply,George

also I call the color maroon, but its official color may be burgandy . I dont know? I'll let one of the experts make the call.

Hi, all.
Photos of my '72 250C appear elsewhere in this forum, but I now have some interior shots, so here she is again.

Wow. Some of you guys really have some nice chicks.

I really can't compete, but I too own a W108.

About 2 years ago I received a call from a guy with a 69 280 S. He wanted me to help him with a problem.
Working as a wrecker, that seemed perfectly normal.
When I arrived, he stood there with 2 keys, a complete set of records, and and his unregistered vehicle.

To my surprise he said, can you take care of her? A big lump in my throat appeared, and I chocked out a "yeah, uh sure." It turned out he had some debt, so the police had chopped his plates. And a new law had just made it illegal to park an unregistered vehicles in the city streets. His landlord had forced him to park away from his property. How could someone be so cruel?

So I got this.


She had been driven daily, and fired up one the first try, after one pump on the gas pedal only. I drove her up on the flatbed. (Of course, a 86 MB 1320)





Now she has spent 2 winters outside. This winter she will stay in a nice cold barn. Next spring I will commence fixing her up. The engine runs more and more only on five now, so something is happening inside there. Out on her last monthly 100 kilometer maintenance spin, I met an old BMW 520 that I could'nt hold. That's gotta to be bad.

Regards

Geir

Just joined the forum. My wife found this 1963 220SEb cabriolet and bought it for me as a retirement gift ten years ago for $18K. I cleaned it up and made a few modifications,i.e. moved battery to trunk, replaced bulky air cleaner with smaller and easier to service KN style, added radiator recovery tank, installed Nardi steering wheel, replaced convertible interior and exterior top and intermediate padding, recored the radiator with new high efficiency 3 row core, converted to an american one wire alternator, new bilstein shocks, engine mounts later model one puck front disk assembly, stainless flexible brakes lines,and boiled out and painted the gas tank. I was tempted to do an engine conversion but after pulling the head for a valve job discovered the bottom end was still perfect(no ring ridge) after 100K miles, so I just accept what I have and its slow acceleration. I love the classic lines of this model and the kudos I constantly receive.

All I can say is " the 300SL " probably the best car ever made, if only I had a spare £200,000 +

Hmm,I'm trying to see if I can attach a pic here.Ok I got it figured now,This is a 300SEL that i just sold before Christmas 2004.It has 69000 miles from new,I was the third owner and it was delivered new to Papua New Guinea.Dr Nelson Wu was the first owner.
The option list was extensive and included a becker mexico stereo AM FM short wave radio with four speakers and hirshman antenna.Full skid pans underneath and tan velour upholstery,thats a more expensive option than leather and seems to wear better.
The colour is Moss green metallic.The new owner is going to change the colour to silver and refit the airbags with quick change valves so he can go the low rider look.Oh well,each to his own.
