The evidence of this? How do you know all the body harnesses will fail when there's been no instances of it to date? Are you not mindlessly speculating?

My upholstery supply shops sells an off brand of spray contact adhesive that works fine, costs about $8. It says it's for hood pads on the label. I'm guessing 3M makes a fine profit margin selling...

That wasn't the reason for the name or name change in 73. Europe got nothing but 3.5 116 motors for years. I thought I sent you the magazine articles from the era.

Euro 350SLs were 043, U.S. were 044s, but that says nothing about the name of the car. Indeed he should do whatever he wants. My only point was that, in my view, when you go to sell a nice example...

That's not true, the horsepower loss was in 73, the bumpers in 74. Only 72s are good on both, and the vast majority of 450SLs were bad on both.

I think you'd do better calling it by its real name, and making it clear that it's a U.S. version 4.5 liter 117 motor. People who know these cars know the 1972 story. In any case good luck with it.

He's asking about a stick, not an automatic. There were quite a few 116 motor stick shifts over the years, 107s, 108s, 109s and 111s, always 3.5 liter, not 4.2. And they were always pretty rare,...

The emissions sticker doesn't actually say it's an 89 model. A "J" in the 10th digit of the VIN is an 88 model.
