My '62 Mercedes 220SE Coupe 5.0 (videos)

Hi all,

My project is now road worty, and though it's still an on-going project it's back to daily driver status.

The other day a friend came and shot some videos with his I-phone. In the three first links I'm explaining what I did on the car and on the three last I'm driving it. The last one is a 0-100mph video. I did not go crazy on the clutch or in the shifts as all this is still a bit new an I don't want to grenade anything. But basically I shift in 2nd at 40mph, in third a 60mph (7s) and third is taking us up to 100mph (17s). I guess I will do better when the car is finished tuning and when I'm more confident with the transmission to shift harsher. I forgot to mention in the video that the engine has been fitted with AMG replica camshafts and solid lifters.

That's awesome; it's always fun to drive something that old quickly. Nice work.

Thanks! I still need to swap the steering box as this one has quite some play in it. Other than that the chassis is quite tight. Engine also needs a bit of fine tuning. I will need to spend some time on a dyno for that. But it's a quite well balanced car and fun to drive.
