600 SLC build

so lets get this out of the way

the contents within these posts may be graphic in nature and may contain explicit amounts of naked 107 body, cutting, grinding, welding, and fabrication, and not to be limited to parts swapping multiple car sacrificing.


for those of you weak of heart, closed minded, purists, children and small animals should avert your eyes..and do make sure your wife is out of the room...unless she is into this kind of thing

to the moderators, im sorry in advance

viewer discretion is advised

some posts may get long winded, expect to be overwhelmed with photos and information, as well as lulls in build time due to life happening, input, questions and wild ideas are more than welcome so dont be afraid to pipe up...more eyes on a build can help keep it on track while steering it into places unexpected


now on with the show

this will be a long distance build,me in oregon the owner in toronto i have worked with the owner via forums before so you may or may not get to see us brainstorm and photoshop drafts back and forth of the build, im not going to fully tip my hat as to all the goodies and things that are currently on the table, or the facts that are set in stone as they will be a surprise

600slc you ask..well i figured that was fitting for the moment as the car has yet to be officially named, tho i refer to her as "Internationale Schlampe" (feel free to translate to English if you like)due to the planing and parts list, being the engine on the stand for her is a 6.0 i figured this would suit you guys

me and the owner tossed around many different makes/models of cars..initially an alfa spider was built and was going to be re-built differently(not sure if cross forum linking is acceptable), while a tail light hunt was under way we hit on the SLC, and everything started to jive and the hunt for one began, every SLC dissapeared of c-list and i mistakenly came across a very VERY local guy with a field FULL of 107's 50 or so, met up with him and scoped things out and had 2 slc's in my cross hairs..with a 3rd grey market import in the running

600 SLC build

What 6.0 motor?
@roncallo has done a 600sl.

There’s also a bored AMG 380slc that had an engine swap.

The tough part of fitting an m119 is apparently the frame rails an exhaust manifolds. Roncallo had to do a lot off subframe fabrication for the m120.

heres the first runner up, a 76 or 77








and the grey market..while it spoke to me...was clearly stored under a tarp for long enough for the rust worms to have had their way with her...saveable sure..but why work harder when you can start off cleaner

this black 74 slc spoke to me..in volumes, and in the end would be harder to get out of the yard, put up the most fight, but had sooooo many coincidental things that were still finding that it is in fact begging for what is about to begin

most of you guys will see it as junk or a parts car...me ive saved cars so far gone no shop in the world would even consider em..so i only see potential and a chance to save one that is otherwise lost

the new owner about died when i told him this was what he was buying for our foundation to build on

a month went by before funds transfered and i had time to get back to it..expecting to have to help drag it out he had it ready to go, i will be doing some horse trading for more parts as the build goes on since theres a good deal of stuff we wont need thats on the car and a short list of things we do






i did manage to get "trapped" inside the car while loading requiring a jack to get out LOL

after getting down off the mountain a bath was in order before getting her home

Wow

All I can say is that the most expensive part of building Samson at least cash wise was the restoration of the car. And its not even painted yet.

Good luck.

That field looks like fonzi's vacation land.
