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 :rolleyes:

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

I can’t even find mbcnsw on fb let alone any posts! Do they have a page & what does it look like?

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!

Trying to find one of those in English for HPFE is almost impossible! I’m not even sure they existed... I have one in English for W126 S1 HPF so thats a start.

Apparently for sale in France with only 46km if it can be believed!

Parts car??? Good grief!! That totally looks like it could be saved!!!!! Unless it has horrible rust underneath...

I wonder if it sold for less than $2AUD?? If it did the PO was a fool. I just hope whoever ends up with it decides to save it & not part it out. :eek:

It’s a shame. I suspect that the seller doesn’t know the rarity and sees it as an old broken car.

As I found out recently, also known as ADS (Active Dampening System). I just managed to score a manual (unfortunately in German), with some pretty pix so I’ll post some here when I can!
