One has some nasty rust under the parcel shelf & a little in the corner of each front guard. Itíll be for sale soon. I have an idea on price but wondering what others think I could sell it for (std wheels not the AMGs)?

Nice pair. Funny that an old guy had two RUF SEC's in the same colour.
Any history on the pair? Is the second one also rusty?

Car is originally a hong kong import? I am not an expert but that looks like the traditional characters as used in Hong Kong and Taiwan. be interesting to post the VIN and see the order and delivery location.

Also, it looks like the cam cover has been damaged, perhaps from a loose chain below. I would wan't to remove the cover and have a look underneath to see what's what.

Itíll be interesting to see how many parts arenít interchangeable from the sedans. Anyone know if fuel tanks & rear subframes are the same for coupe/sedans?

One will be sold. The other with the low comp replacement engine (which was originally an ECE) will the final resting place for my 5.0L M119 & trans. I just couldnít find a decent 450SE anywhere after a lengthy search.
