Geoff, who is HE ? If you are referring to me, unfortunately I am in no position to purchase the Red Terror. I tend to think I have enough work on my plate. If anything, I am trying to downsize. Regards Styria

Okay, please no more details regarding wishes, plans and hopes on anyone moving wherever. The thread relates to my 450SE and whilst I am obviously interested in members' future plans, I do ask that a separate thread be established that covers that subject. More than likely, if time permits, the posts relating to relocation will be accomodated in this newly established thread. Regards Styria

Hi Styria it was a reference to Mark from earlier comments in the post. If he buys the Red Terror he might get his mojo back by having a road going 6.9 it worked for me. Now current pictures and any updates please on your 450SE and if selling what price are you thinking.

Hi Styria I did keep returning to origins of post as the car does interest me.

Hi Motec 6.9, thank you for clarifying "HE" as Mark. Mind you, I am not so sure that he would want more 6.9s, although it is obviously a matter for him. I can now understand your remark regarding your fresh enthusiasm since purchasing your "new" Milan Brown 6.9.

I have no problem if you raise matters in this thread regarding the 450SE. I have done very little in between times, but I will look at the various posts and photos to see what further information I can provide you with. Regards Styria

Hi Styria your comment about selling your 450SE is the reason for my renewed interest. If you still have it after I move across I would be interested in looking at it as my next favourite W116 is this car .

No way I'm buying another 6.9! My mojo loss has been the result of relationship issues which completely destabilized my foundations. But things are changing in the right direction now.

Styria's SE looks like a great car and I can understand what he means about a good home. If you can't enjoy them, then give someone else the opportunity, as long as they're deserving of the responsibilty

I was thinking 450SE for nice drives because I can kind of car and 6.9 for special occasions or shows . And keeping something like hyundia as park it at the shops or work car. Really would not change the car as 6.9 is getting that .

Well, this is a story of my 450SE still in my possession and really looking for a nice, new home. It looks as though a new fellow by the name of Scotty H. is looking for someone like you - so Scotty, have a real good look through these posts, and this may just be the car for you. You can even PM me, or better still, ring me on my mobile 0428 50 1800, Regards Styuria

I hadn't seen this thread as it pre-dates my time on the forum - looks nice a nice car that has had a lot of important work like the timing chain done. The gold is very period.

Nice car.

That is one nice car that the Godfather has spent many hours fixing what needs to be fixed.

Unfortunately, to some degree, a problem has cropped up. Nevertheless, it is still a good car, reasonably priced with heaps of potential to a caring owner. Naturally, I would like to sell the car complete, basically cutting my losses, but I would be prepared to sell parts on an individual basis.

I have removed the right rocker (tappet) cover, and there is no evidence of any damage to chain, camshaft or rockers. I have not yet determined the exact problem, but I would imagine that removal of heads etc. would eventually turn this engine into a real cracker. For information, please see my other thread. Regards Styria

Styria did you ever hear from the new owner what the problem was? It was a curious one.

And is the new owner going to join the forum?
