W111 Coupe With W116 Front End
« on: April 06, 2019, 09:41:57 PM »
Very, very interesting. https://www.ebay.com/itm/223473657447?ViewItem=&item=223473657447


It's so bizarre, but someone did a seamless job of it (from the outside). The inner fenders are something else, and it looks like the entire floor section is home-made. It's not even the first time I've seen such a thing.

Interesting if MB would have designed it we would had a W116 Coupe. For the $$ it would make an interesting daily driver Steering wheel from the 107 and manual transmission and plenty of room under the hood for a Diesel or V8. ;D ;D

Be skeptical of the seller.  BHCC has a lot of crap.

I think Euro headlights on it would be a big improvement.

I don't mind the rear view, i always thought the standard tail lights are too narrow for the size of the car. The finnie sedan tail lights suit the rear better than the standard ones too. I always wondered whether the larger tail lights from a W100 may also work - but gee, aren't they expensive...
A few W111 and W112 projects...
