Nice pair! So what's the story with the blue one? What parts does it need to get back on the road?

Congrats! But why two?

The blue one is the exact colour, that my father got for a test drive in 1985 just when it came out. I remember driving with him and I had the pleasure of driving with this "rocket". Remember, a cW of 0.30, so a really fast car. It was the first time I was over 230 km/h ... 21 years old :laughing6:

He got one at the beginning of 1986, one of the first ones with cat here in Germany. As the fuel stations were quite rare with the unleaded fuel in those days, it required planning when you drove ...

So is it your new daily driver?
Best regards
Thomas

The story is that at work about 10 days ago, a site shop steward was admiring my CE and told me his next-door-neighbour (in Riddells Creek, about 1 hour north from where I live) had 2 x Benzes of similar age... The photo exchange occurred that night, a Friday by good chance, so I advised SWMBO, after a couple of 'champers-Pats' that these cars were available for a song.....so the CE was driven north the next day to show that the cars were going to a good home...
The Diamond Blue (with 251k klms) one was the PO's pride and joy, but met 2 x small 'roos on the Calder Hwy a couple of years ago. RACV were to repair the car, but the PO, being a truckie (who BTW drives to Wagga Wagga and back every day!) decided to take the $$$$. The 'Roos must have come-off second best, as the only damage is to the headlights, bumper and bonnet...even the grille is undamaged.
P.O then bought the Maroon/Burgundy one (with 257k Klms) which was a hail-damaged auction buy, but little was ever done except a few parts removed, until I came along....
A few parts have gone astray, so having shaken hands, I drove like mad across town in the CE to Pick-A-Part Kilsyth, where I had seen a Diamond Blue car a few weeks back to source:
- the seats from the blue car were used in some other project, so it currently has the other car's Cream leather seats (so a mint pair of blue leather pair were bought at P-A-P on sale for $50..)
- front r/h guard has been partially cut-off (a diamond blue guard also bought at P-A-P from same wreck for $60)
- the Maroon car has had engine&tauto. removed, but I will get the engine plus a lot of other parts in the coming weeks

I have pretty much all I need...the spare on the Blue car, still has the original dealer sticker, stuck to the tyre tread...definitely worth the effort.

So w/e just gone, I picked up the Maroon one on Sat and Blue one yesterday... so the plan is to put the Blue one back on the road, then sell-off all the spares and other body...watch this space.. :dance:

Guys,
I have tonight collected the 2nd 12v M103 engine (with 287k klms) and numerous 124 parts, so if all goes to plan this w/e and the Diamond Blue one finally starts, I will then be parting-out the 2nd car, so let me know if you need anything before I dump the 2nd cars body (over the coming weeks.... )

Sure do, let me know what you need as I have a spare body, from which I will only use the bonnet, front lights and bumper, the rest is all pretty much straight
