I agree... original color-coded hubcaps make a W123 look quite retro-classic and unique in its own way. I also like the factory optional Baroque or Bundt-style alloy wheels, either 14" or the holy grail of alloys - 15"s!! W123's tend to look attractive too when shod with W123 era-correct German wheels such as Ronal (pentas, R9s, etc..) or even cross-spoke alloys such as BBS 15"s. Original factory AMG rims are ultra-desirable too for the sporty look. I'm not too fond of chrome wheels on a W123, maybe polished but not chrome... Of course, everyone has their own tastes and preference so that should be of individual priority for each and every one of us... different strokes for different folks! [^]
thank you for your oppinion, I went to your site Benz bar, I would just like to congratulate you on your fine collection of cars. I have never classic mercedes cars in such a good condition. You are trully a man with great taste.
I think bbs wheels (from -80Â´s) looks good at my car.
And the wintertyres on 15" baroquerims also looks good.
Of course i still have the original 14" hubcaps and steelrims left if someday i wanna switch to originallook of the car.
But the original 14" baroquerims also looks great on w123`s!!
I love the hub cap look. Does anyone have a 14" hubcap they want to get rid of? I was thinking of polishing my alloy rims but think modifying a hubcap may be a better way to go. I'm just looking for one to experiment with. Will be happy to pay for shipping. Dented or scraped doesn't matter.
Car is a US spec 1978 280E, M110.
The current system is still the stock York system with the belt removed, so I have no idea what it's condition is. Best would be throw a belt on and all is fine, but I assume the belt was removed for a reason. Anticipating the worst, buying a new York...
Happy New Year! May getting rich be as easy as getting fat!
Today I started the finishing touches on my new speaker board. I hope to be done and dusted by Sunday, but I'm just as happy to interrupt the finishing and reinstall it incomplete if it means having music on my first week back to work.
Hi fellow MB lovers,
First of all, thank you all for all the good information you have accumulated on these forums over all these years. The enthusiasm for older cars cannot exist without the people on this and other forums.
I am looking at two 240D's with similar mileage and conditions. One...
Almost 80% od the car trim removed to get it ready for painting.
Every part I take hides a little surprise usually called rust.
All of it is associated with the fact that this car has been sitting (I would guess outsized) since 2013.
