Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Sweet car, I didn't know there were any 6.9 convertibles in existence. Is it an aftermarket conversion? And if so, who did the conversion?

I did it using TUV approved Baehr structural reinforcement plans,I had no intention of crash testing my work,but did and the structural work proved to be perfect...I've done a four 250c w114 chassis cabriolets the last one I did I used the 95 E320 cabriolet top,the first one I did I used a Baehr cabriolet top.

Looking for a w111 coupe for a cabriolet conversion...
