108/109 interests

Hello. Any other vintage 108/09 body people out there? I have had these cars for decades and really love them. My father had a few 300SEL cars years back including a rare 6cyl 300sel. Please chime in if there is some interests.



*I am also selling my excellent '73 280SEL 4.5 in the F/S section. Please take a look(before it gets lost in there).

Lots of interest here in this forum. Mercmad, have you thought of creating a 108/109 specific forum in Benzworld?

I agree, maybe even include the 111/112 series or a Heckflosse subforum... these chassis (108 thru 112) deserve all the respect, accolades, and support they can get.

I'll vote for that. I had a W108 ('72 280SEL 4.5) 25 years ago, and I would love to have another.

Great too see interests in these sedans that were literally unbreakable. I have had 10 since this last one I must sell. My father had about another twelve in all shapes and forms. I also am very fond with all the 3.5 configurations since I have had a few of those too. My favorite is the '71 3.5 coupe. A straight six version will also do(low grill).

Hey all! Big fan here. Never had a 109, but come close a few times. Had many a 108, including my current car. Had two 111 3.5 coupes, which I unceremoniously converted into convertibles. One had a four speed manual, which I found out was rather rare, right after I sold it. The other is one car that I never should have sold, but hindsight, what can I say. I have also had several 113's and would consider them to be close bretheren in many ways. If it weren't for things like a mortgage and college tuition, I would have more of any of these, but instead I have merely had them. But I treasure the experiences. Happy motoring to all!

Give me a oldie any day. 300 SEL, 600, any old finback, old 300's down to the 190 D are all ok by me. There is nothing like em.
On that topic I have Girling three piston caliper kits. Enough to do three calipers, they were for my old 220 S automatic. If you need them for $80 plus the fedex envelop to you, email PM me.

I'd take any of the oldies too, but nothing with a D attached to it. They're criminally gutless.

Speaking of "criminally" I just noticed under your avatar you also had a "stolen" 220SEb? That's the second coupe I have seen stolen (there was a recent 250SE Coupe that was also stolen in Sacramento).
So I presume 111/112 coupes are hot items for theft? Probably for dismantling by chop-shops or conversion to convertibles perhaps...
