Thanks. You might agree that it's the only real solution to dealing with the problem.

Cool car and project. Have to ask, any interest in selling? If so send PM with what it takes. Serious buyer but not desperate either.

Otherwise keep pics coming. Love early AMG wagons.

I can appreciate the interest but I'm afraid she's a keeper.

Its rumored that only 5 W123's received the M117 transplant by AMG, 2 wagons, 2 sedans and 1 coupe. Understandably as the cost was upwards of 65,000 DM back in the early 80's.

Meanwhile, some bits back from CAD plating.

Stepping away from the build for a bit but will post more photos as progress is made.

Got the engine bay back together and its running strong. A few more details to address under the hood but she's complete.

Onto the next phase...
