Identity crisis!

Hello everyone,

I am having a hard time identifying a few mercedes from a cool picture collection on vwvortex. All of the cars i can't identify look like a mix between W108 and W115.

VWvortex Forums: Classic Mercedes-Benz appreciation thread

So mainly on the first page: the silver with the 3-piece AMG wheels and license ES 04539, the two-tone black-white with plate B LA 666H, and the two-tone green-white.

thanks!

The silver one is a SWB 600--I don't know what the W number for a 600 is. There were some SWB models made, although it wasn't the most popular as you can imagine. I would certainly tear-ass around the countryside since it was considerably lighter than the big versions but had the big motor and air suspension. It was sort of an early 300SEL 6.3 I guess.

The black and white one looks like a Euro version of a W115.

Isn't the SWB a limo looking car? The silver car i was talking about looks like a W115 its in the posting by gogogadget on the first page. And I was kind of hoping for a more specific answer like its a 200, or 230.4, 240D. I dont mean to nag

I think they're all stroke-8s (I'm pondering w114 for the first 2 and W115 for the 3rd one) with obvious modifications.

I went and checked out a 1971 W115 220 and it had the headrests and I've seen on a 1966 250S without them. Are there years of the W114 250 with no headrest on the front seats that is not the fintail body? Also are 1973 250 pretty rare in the US? Wikipedia gave a pretty small number for number of manufactured.
