Lookin for Hammer knowledge
I have an opportunity to buy a Hammer. I have not seen it yet but it sounds like it was about a 1990 560SEC style car with an AMG Hammer package. He said he paid nearly $200k for the car. He drove it for 1 month and then had an accident. The car was wrecked, but the engine and drive train are in good condition. The owner bought another 91 560SEC and was planning to transplant the engine into it. But it never happened. Now he wants to dump both of the cars. He tells me the engine is a 7.5 liter rated at nearly 500 HP. Aparently it will drop into the 91 560SEC car with no problem. I was thinking of doing the engine / drivetrain / suspension swap and having a real smoking car. I dont know what Hammers existed in those years.
Does anybody have any ideas as to what this car was / could have been and if the story he is telling me adds up?
I got too many cars!! Insurance eats me alive. Dave
