Default High Compression 560s in Australia

So I'm trying to get an idea of the numbers of M117.968s in Australia and this is what I currently know:

10 in total.

1 x WA,
1 x NSW,
1 x SA,
1 x TAS,
1 x QLD (wrecked),
5 x VIC (incl 1 wrecked LHD).

Further detail:

WA: Update, navy ext, beige int, seat heaters, orth frt seats, rear blind, full hydro,

NSW: Black ext, split rear seats, rear blind, full hydro removed,

SA: Unknown apart from the fact it exists,

TAS: Update, split rear seats, advertised a while ago,

QLD: Grey int, wrecked to be a donor for something else,

VIC: Update, silver ext, grey int, split rear seats, frt seat heaters with orth, full hydro,

VIC: Champagne ext, burgundy int, rear SLS removed,

VIC: Update, black ext, black int, seat heaters, rear SLS removed, LPG,

VIC: Update, black ext, nil sunroof, no SLS,

VIC: White ext, navy int, seat heaters, orth frt seats, LHD, wrecked.


Anyone able to add to the list???

What about the HC 500SELs; another thread?

Good idea. They do come up from time to time on carsales and gumtree, but would be worth tracking. I'll post here if I see one for sale.

Oh yours was an import? I thought it was an Aussie? Did it have any interesting options? Any more pix? Where is it now?

Oh one of the WA cars was a 500SEL originally, but it's still a LWB car with the HC engine....

It was an import... Hong Kong i believe, but in mint, rust-free condition.
Not sure where it went as a dealer bought it from me. The plate is no longer registered.
It had an electric back seat.

I have many pics.
Will upload some later this evening.

Recently I've come across 2 more:

A grey full hydro car pre-update in Newcastle (?) and,

A silver car in Melbourne with the hydro removed, split rear seats, seat heaters, orth front seats and a rear blind. Almost identical to my car (which is also an update model), but less the hydro. I'm still in contact with the owner so hopefully we'll have a sister cruise before too long!
