    Re: Mercedes-Benz W124 500E aka Porsche typ 2758

    Impressive.   I fondly recall when the AMG Hammer preceded the Porsche variant too.  Car and Driver had a coupé version of the Hammer and I used to see it often around the U of M campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  Little did I know that years later one of my business associates was the then head of CBS media and oversaw Car and Driver and Road & Track.  That car caused him much angst as it was a major hit to the budget.  


    Re: Mercedes-Benz W124 500E aka Porsche typ 2758

    Love the pics and project, Frank!!

    Congratulation for the work !

    It must be such a nice feeling to have this car now in bran new condition. Great sound too blush

    How long did the project take and at what cost?

    The purpose of life is to enjoy the moment.


    Re: Mercedes-Benz W124 500E aka Porsche typ 2758

    Congrats Frank, great project. My brother and I have been talking about tackling a restomod project sometime in the next few years, we're thinking about finding an BMW E30 and updating the mechanics and going to an M3 look. Without M3 badging of course. 


    Re: Mercedes-Benz W124 500E aka Porsche typ 2758

    How long did the project take and at what cost?

    About 3 months and around 12k EUR for the work listed here. Another 6k CHF was spent on extended maintenance in Switzerland.

    12k for all this work…a good deal.👍

    Re: Mercedes-Benz W124 500E aka Porsche typ 2758

    That’s a tremendous deal as I expected, with all the work, a much higher price tag.  I envision more and more projects along these lines as more EVs enter production.  This is an antidote to those quickly but still appliance-like devices.

    This is my observation as well. Plus, driving a car that was restored to its original beauty can be a very rewarding feeling and experience.

    I love the front view. It transmits that “cut from granite” solidity so well.

    The 500E and the 1989 SL from Bruno Sacco. Two legendary Mercedes-Benz . The current cars designs do not come close in term of class and emotion.
