540K, is this the car has been the subject of a little discussion over on the AACA forum in the past; too bad you were not able to source an engine. Curious, when you say "original car" do you mean original chassis and special roadster body built to spec? Assume that is the case, which makes your approach a lot more understandable now. Who built the body for this?
If it was the car I am thinking of, the thought was it would be ready for auto show circuits this year, I think, but that does not sound like the case. In any event sounds like you are going down the right path, glad your first choice is MB, wihtout giving away too much, will the car present as "stock" or look like a hot rod?
