Default Re: Hydropneumatic Suspension (HPF) Series 2

I just received a large package from Germany & finally have all the parts I need to get the 560 back on the road (apart from new cells). Plus I have another full S2 system earmarked for something else... ������������

These cars all have the high compression 300hp M117 and are very rare in Australia. I bet there’s few left worldwide. So here’s the latest count:

Dora is 1 of 4 known cars in the country that retains the S2 hydro suspension:

Silver, update grey interior split rear seats (Dora), VIC,
Impala Brown, Orthopedic front seats, NSW,
Navy, update beige interior, WA,
Grey, pre-update grey interior, QLD,

The other known cars in Australia with the HYDRO REMOVED are:

Blue/black update grey interior split rear seats, VIC,
Blue/black pre-update grey interior split rear seats ASR, ACT.
Navy pre-update grey interior, WA.

500SEL green, green cloth interior parts only, VIC.
