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.

Looks like another full hydro UK model 560SEL has been unearthed on the MBCNSW facebook.

Its an 86 model that the owner has had for 10 years and I get the impression has been laid up. Wants to get it restored.

Don't know how to link to a particular post on FB.

While we are on W126's I have a factory brand new in the box rear window for sale on behalf of a friend. It's at Seven Hills. It came from Tom at the Classic Centre so it's worth more

Looks like the owner decided to keep it & not sell. Pity they had difficulty just saying so!

I canít even find mbcnsw on fb let alone any posts! Do they have a page & what does it look like?

They should let you join, there are other non-members on the page.

Seems FB is case sensitive when searching but still had a hard time finding their page. Anyway I found it & am now a member. I then found the post & friended the owner! See if I can convince him to joint TK!
