Well this one's a bit of a mystery. I have seen pictures of this car before, many years ago. With more knowledge now it's even more confusing.

It looks to me like the engine is a modified 6.3, but I'd heard they can't be bored to have a 7L capacity. So did they stroke the engine, or use a 6.9 block? Are the blocks even interchangeable?

Did AMG install the engine?

Where did the manifold come from? Could it be an AMG prototype? Has anyone seen one on a Red Pig (or replica)?? If it was cast, they'd have to be a mould floating around somewhere..... I want one!!!!

Ahhh those crazy Germans!

And I thought the 6.9 was a "Stuff you" to the so called "Oil Crisis" lol

No sane person really believe we would run out of oil in the 70's and many predicted that the oil reserves wouldn't last much past 1984 and here we are nearly 30 years later with plenty of Texas Tea............

A bit like Global warming/Climate science eh?

That explains why I've never seen it; it must be just a blur..... If you know the owner of the monster, ask them to stop at a show sometime so we can hear it's story and hopefully get some pics too!

Thanks Motec! Now this raises a few questions...

What happened to the Aussie car?? No updates since 2006... Sounds like it had modified Ford headers (made in Melbourne)??

The one in the USA has original polished Centras, but the offset still appears different to mine. Maybe it's just because they're polished, or it's due to the narrower tyres being fitted? I must say I don't like the speakers in the doors, but the rest looks very nice. What happened to the radiator and shroud? It looks like a custom fab one...

If I get one made, I'll be headed here:

http://www.aussiedesertcooler.com.au/

If they were after power (as the 7.3 badge suggests), why don't they have headers, cold air and a bigger exhaust??

Where are the custom badges made?? Michel???

Hi Mark without i have 150hp pill in NOS system at the moment so that makes about 443 hp at the wheels . But it can be changed all the way to 300hp . but seeing as i have finally worked out how to make m-100 sing i want at least 500hp out of big motor heads have allready been done . Custom valves fitted with thinner stems and ports done and been on flow bench. Still looking at making custom manifold as that is main limiter a bit like holden 5ltr with after market manifolds to make real power . Or Tickford manifold for 5.6 windsor
