saw a 107 500sl euro over the weekend

on a cheapo used car lot in reynolds indiana. fresh cheap paint over unsanded rust bubbles here and there. water standing behind drivers seat and carpet behind seat missing. hard top on. euro bumpers and headlights. seats decent. gold with brown interior. couldnt get the hood open to check to see if it really is a 500. moved on.


later saw a 450slc in san pierre sitting with a lot of the parts inside, like tail lights and such. trim off the side with large rust areas around trim holes. stopped to look at how it is built to scope out my roadster pickup idea. still thinking about that one.

i think i might consider it if i could find a clean slc with a bad motor so i could do a 617 conversion at the same time.

if i am going to go crazy i might as well go all the way!

Can you check the VIN on the 500, should be able to tell from that.

Post SL Pickup Project

Tom ;

If you ever follow through on this , please let me know ! .

I was looking at a sweet W-114 pickup last sunday , it was very well done .

I know of a nearly finished W-116 pickup but it's being done by a M-B junkyard as a parts hauler so it's -very- sloppy .

I found one W-107 / 617 conversion the owner gave up on ~ I'd love one and a pickup would only be sweeter...
