    Re: 1969 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3

    I never bought it with that intention, I certainly still might get another one (or another car altogether) for that event. Depends how emotionally attached I'll end up getting when I finally get to use it. :)

    I frequently travel through some Balkan countries and always cringe, driving over bumps and through potholes, even in a modern daily driver. Can‘t imagine doing this in a pristine vintage car over hundreds or thousands of kilometres.

    I was under the impression the Rallye starts in a couple of months?

    No it just finished, the 2019 edition. The next one is in 3 years only, not in a rush! Smiley

    Agreed. Car would need a real overhaul, similar to what Sherif (intouch) is doing.

    Re: 1969 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3

    The landyacht is ready after the relatively extensive overhaul. Picked it up on my birthday as a present to myself, upon arrival I thought it looked wonderful and upon taking off it drove equally well too. Tight, fresh, felt as new/looked as new. Unfortunately I was stranded after 5km, so much for the birthday delivery.

    Limped back to the shop and took another car back home, now waiting for the diagnosis (supposedly a fault in the fuel pump). I guess it's part of life with a classic but still hoping from now on it'll be smooth sailing.

    A magnificent birthday present to yourself Porker, those old Mercedes were (and still are)  a wonderful piece of engineering. Designed and built by proper engineers, not by accountants, unlike today’s cars! Smiley

    Re: 1969 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3

    Really great car, the only thing putting me off a bit is the stance on those rims. Are they taken over from a different model or did you use spacers? 

    Would‘ve been great if the numberplate read 63 instead of 2. indecision

    They're OEM rims, no spacers. Usually these cars were fitted with the optional painted hubcaps, perhaps that's why it looks different?

    The plate is from my C63, it's only temporary until the car is registered. I still have to decide what vanity plate to fit. :)

    Re: 1969 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3

    Oddly enough, one can find examples with wheels placed fairly inboard, on other examples the stance is like on your car.

    Strange, maybe there was an option for a wider set of wheels/tires, that's possible. I should check my options list based on my VIN but I'm a bit hesitant to fork out EUR200 to Mercedes for the privilege of knowing which options I have. Smiley

    I love this car, beautiful. Will go up in value a lot over the years to come. Will also pair very nicely with a Taycan for sporty EV driving with family....


    Re: 1969 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3

    Fault was down to dirty fuel from standing still so long and residue in the tank, which caused the fuel pump to go bad. All fixed now and ready to take me to Goodwood Revival in a few weeks!

    Took the vessel to a sun drenched Goodwood Revival, fantastic event as always. The car was faultless, even sits happily at 200km/h on the highway.

    Porker, thinking about selling? Any special reason?

    Spud! The reason being that I adore it, but I adore driving more. It's a car to isolate you from the driving and to cruise along, while I guess I'm more after something raw and exciting in an oldtimer. I lack the time at the moment to do a lot of trackdays with the GT3 so I'd prefer to have something I can take out on Sunday on the public road that still serves up some driving pleasure at sane speeds. Second reason is more practical, I live in the city and it's a big old boat to drive around/park in the city, it takes up two spaces in my garage whereas I could fit the GT3 and below red toy together in the same spot.

    It will always be with a sad face that I'd let the Mercedes go, but this Alfa is probably replacing it which makes up for a lot. An Alfaholics-spec (not the full GTA-R unfortunately) 1300 Junior with a 2.0 Twin Spark. Love the way it looks and drives properly as well. Only downside is getting in it, it's tiny!
