1970 300 SEL 6.3 recent purchase

Couldn't resist this big V8 sedan with 43K miles!! Always wanted one!

The wife says sell one or two of the fleet for storage reasons. I've got a three car garage and a one car storage unit, so.....

More pics to follow.

Welcome. If you don't know already, please visit The International M-100 Group for your M100 powered viewing enjoyment. Lots of good and valuable information there.

Forget about modifying it.

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

Congrats, a buddy here has one that looks literally showroom fresh, the Classic Center would be jealous. I'm sure you're going to enjoy every moment of time with that car, congrats!

Ahhhh yes. The most gorgeous thing in the world is the front end of a 108 or 109. Should you have to downsize the fleet and need to give away any 6.3s you might have accumulated, look me up!
