Project Name: 1985 500se AMG
Quick Description: This is my main w126 car, one of my four “Keeper” cars (currently). I really like the 199 “blue back” with black leather interior. Since the gen1 interior is not perfect (even after replacing the passenger front seat), I’ve obtained a gen2 interior for it in black leather, two sets of front seats actually. The car has wheel options of black Rials, staggered or square, and AMG pentas too. I’ve obtained the correct rear euro bumper and an AMG style skirt for it too. I also have tri-y I could add to the car. I had obtained recaros, but used them on a different vehicle. I do have a cream set that I could dye black though. Lots of options here, and no rush to sell. Also considering putting in a 5-speed manual, and have the pedals, bell housing, transmission, flywheel etc. I’d just need some machining work on the bell housing, and the BMW clutch for the Getrag-265.
