    Nothing too exciting but its bloody nice to drive and has a certain charm about it.

    Needs tint badly though.

    Thanks. I'm very much a US Muscle kind of car guy, but this has a certain amount of charm and is nice to cruise in.

    My old man 'accidnetly' won it on ebay lol so instead of pulling out of the buy I gave him the cash and said we'd just kinda share it.

    Buy the time I shipped it across the country it cost me just over $6000Aud ($4000USD ish).

    First up is tint, then exhaust, then doof doof. It's already been lowered and if we're gonna put some miles on it I don't want it to ride too hard.

    It's an 86 Austrlian delievered 560SEL. So far I've figured out it got the 18's from a E55 2002 or similar, a 140 grill conversion, lowered springs and new shocks, and the updated smooth clading. It also has the smaller mirror conversion.

    lo no idea. About 300hp stock back at new I think. Doubt it near that now, and the luxo-spec auto dulls it all down about.

    That is a beautifully maintained car after all these years. Great find. Im a fan. Those are AMG wheels also correct? Did those come standard on that model?
