thennen1 Car is lowered, euro motor, tri y's etc as you know

it sits lower than my lowered 560 SEC

obviously more power and better handling than my other 560 SEL--but a lot louder and more rattles

bondavi Appreciate you chiming in - how does the Frankenheimer car drive compared to your other 560SEL?

Hi

I bought the Frankenheimer car at the auction in 2016

Put $14K into car to address engine and a few suspension issues--Probably due to the car apparently sitting a long time

Runs and handles great now

I have 3 other 126's including 1991 SEC AMG once owned by Stephen Stills

I'd be willing to sell Lorinser 126 if anyone is interested

Thanks Thomas Hennen

GreenT Geezus... I'd forgotten about this stunner. In today's market coupes are bringing all the money but still, this would be worth double or triple what it went for. At a minimum.

Anthracite plus Lorinser... my dream car.

magicbigdaddy A really great buy for a lucky new owner. Hope someone continues to love the car. Nice examples are becoming very scarce. Most of the other Mercedes offered brought good money.

D&WCali Great price and glad I got to watch it.. someone got a GREAT car hope its someone here that bought it

bondavi $12,100 including 10% buyer's premium - attaboy

Not ideal for CA buyers - they added the "dealer or non-CA buyers only" clause at the time the car was brought up, not in the info beforehand.
