1979 Mercedes Benz 450SEL 6.9 (CA Spec) New 6.9 purchased to flip until I found that it has the strongest 6.9 engine that I have driven.
I bought this from a local used car dealer in Ft Worth. It's a Canada spec 6.9 that needed help. The paint was shot and so was the interior. The car's rear end was jacked up high. I replaced the suspension pump and adjusted the rear suspension so that it drives comfortably.

The front seats were burnt, so I replaced them with perfect MB Tex seats and shot the car in DB 735 Base Coat / Clear Coat over the Thanks Giving Holiday.

Here are some before and after pictures.

H-townbenzoboy Is this the one you brought up to Centerville last year? 02-05-2008
alabbasi Thanks, the seats were found on eBay and bought from a guy in Florida for very little money. Possibly because of the cost of shipping. Oddly enough, a friend who sells and installs Gym equipment had a site to install in that area so it couldn't work out any better. 01-22-2008
JimmyL Very freakin' nice Al!! You are certainly the 6.9 guy around these parts. Where did you find the nice replacement seats? 01-22-2008
