Show Us Your Car's Interior

Fellow Pelicans -


We all know that the interior of a car can be just as beautiful and/or practical as the exterior, so we're asking you to show us what your cabin looks like! Did you keep the car's stock look or did you completely gut the interior? Are those gauges stock or did you add them for extra data logging?

We look forward to seeing your photos below!


I'll start it off with our 190 SL

I think it could be an external wiring issue that's behind this clock's intermittent malfunctioning. Oddly, whenever it doesn't work, its light (the one that comes on with the dash panel lights) doesn't work either. Certainly will warrant some investigation with the mulitmeter on a rainy day!

We recently purchased a 1978 240D. 4 speed, no A/C, with electric windows and sunroof. It is a 2 owner car and was ordered and delivered in Germany back in 1978. The original owners lived in rural Oregon so had an auxiliary fuel tank mounted in the trunk. It is in excellent condition with just over 107,000 miles. No rust and runs great.
Here are a few of the interior, which is in amazing condition with just a few issues to address.

My 1973 280SEL 4.5 with cognac leather. The only item not original is the driver's heel rest which replaced the original which cracked. The electro-mechanical VDO clock runs a bit slow but I love the sound. No quartz for me!
