Do you love the 108? Is it a time constraint thing if you get the 111? If you're looking at a 50 thousand dollar car, the 2500 from the 108 isn't going to do much towards that.
Right. $2300 in my pocket actually. If I take my time and really fix up the w108, I see people asking much much more for nice examples. Mine has a cracked dash, but I guess all the other things I can make nice pretty easily. I don't know if I could use the 1969 dash pad top as one to restore and ultimately install in the 1973. With all that, I think I could have a pretty nice w108. The engine work comes first though. 3.5 heads on there get
Me a little excited too. It helps me take more advantage of this 350sl 4-speed I am buying too. Mostly I wanted the bell housing from that car for hopes and plans of maybe converting my 450slc 5.0 to a manual trans getrag 265 car. Lots of projects, and I'm only 40, so hopefully I've got plenty of time to upgrade both of those cars to a single w111 convertible. I don't know if the w111 convertibles are "pulling away" in prices, or if the custom 107.026 and a regular w108 will be closing the gap. I'm guessing the w111 may be "pulling away", and maybe it's time to fetch one before they all exceed $100k.
