Talking Found a 1972-73 450SL buying parts for my F-150

I went up to the local junkyard for a power window motor for my F-150, when I turn around a 1972-73 450SLC is sitting there.
Now I have almost 3 full sets of Euro headlights and grabbed the skinny US bumpers too.
Looks like I have plenty of 6" aluminum steelies.
Maybe some day I will buy a r107.
The pw motor was already replaced so not too bad of day.

Maybe one day you will have enough parts to build one for yourself...

Ugh 3 full sets of euro headlights?

Want to share a pair?

It's so dang annoying that all of the yards in SoCal get mobbed by the dismantlers. Any good parts get gobbled up stupid fast.
