Was the side windows. Unfortunately 1 was broken during the process of removing the chrome strip. Iíve found the only place in Australia that will make an automotive window in any shape , they are making me a complete set.

Well done! Thank you for the information, thatís amazing. Itís fantastic to find out what/where/when for these old classics. They all have a story to tell.
 We removed the front fender on the weekend to find what looks like a bullet hole from possibly a .45 !!
I know my coupe was brought to Australia very early in life then in the 80s exported to the USA. Then, about 20 years ago brought back to Australia and now undergoing a thorough restoration from me!
If anyone is interested, Iíll give a progress report!

Thank you! Good to know

I replaced the trunk bush, the lower support arm bush near the pinion, the pinion seal, the front and rear trailing arm bushes in the car on my w111 230s. It was a very difficult job to say the least, but I did it on my own, under the car..... I must have been mad/crazy

Hi Aaron, thank you for your reply. I have since obtained a copy of the data card. Yes, your perfectly correct about the trim. I have a question though about the data card if you could look over it for me.
Code number 61/3. 65/0. 68/3. And the following number 328, can you shed some light on those numbers? I have established the meaning of the rest of it.

Has anyone seen/had anything to do with the company who makes stainless steal bumpers for both sedans and the coupe??

You can get under dashboard pieces from world upholstery for the coupe s. I think itís pretty much the same shape as the sedan in that area....

Hi all from Australia 🇦🇺. I have recently added a w111 coupe to my collection and it is a very early example. Itís chassis number is 111021-20-020951. Body number 111021-20-00068. It is black on red interior. It is a 1961 build I think and I need to know if it left the factory 🏭 with 5 pleats on the front seats or 4. Can someone please help me?? I have no data card as yet.
