108 Help

Hello, I'm trying to restore a '66 250S (108) (Chassis # 10-004273) that my Father-in-law purchased new. I am having a hard time finding sources for parts. This is a dual carb, floor shift, 4 speed car and it seems to be somewhat of an "Orphan". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This is the car my wife was driving when I met her in Aug. 1967. We will be married 45 years in August and I'm trying to get it done as a surprise. It's painted and going back together but I'm really getting frustrated trying to find parts. Thanks !!

I always start w Ron, the site moderator. Ive never had an issue. I've also had luck with Peachparts, Autohaus, Napa, AutoZone, and a number of vendors on ebay.

I just did this job this past weekend (bushings). I've got a W108 4.5 though. Should be the same set up for you.

Go to Autohauz AZ or local dealer and get part 1159920310 and clip 0009944160

4 speed manual or automatic? The manuals have bushings in the shifter itself that can be approximated at your local hardware store. The automatic are the ones we have all dealt with at one time or another. lol Anyone need to use my bushing pliers? lol

In the original post the car is described as "floor shift, 4 speed."

Floor shift could be either automatic or manual. Column shift would have to be an automatic. knapster was talking about it being the same as his 4.5. It is only the same if it is an automatic.
