There's a high-dollar LS-swapped replica out there built by some outfit called Reviva (they call it Red Pig 2), i think yours is better.  Awesome work!

Yes It was presented at SEMA coupe years ago. 

Great craftsmanship and finishing , But I personally don't like it all in red . I would never choose that size of a car to paint that color. 

Also not a fan of the front fender flares and polished wheels. 

Stickers, Lights and chrome makes that car look complete. 


Btw I don't like to much color of the wheels that I chose . They  came out to dark . 

And no polished lips for me . I like that rough cast finish . Wheels probably will be repainted , not sure about the color yet . 


BTW thanks for all the kind words . 


And my car is kind of hight budget already !

Parts and materials add up very quickly .

Agree. Something about the flares on the other one that look wrong to my eye. I think it's the droopy eyelid look.

Little Christmas update . 

Didn't have to much time lately caused by making a large step in my life and setting up a "Classic Rescue Coachwork" 

This is the new shop getting set up.

What city are you in?  I don't currently need such services but it's still good information to share.

It's so hard to decide which generation of S Klasse is the best looking but damn if you're not making a good argument for the W108.

Runs and drives under its own power. 

I was able to take care of steering turning ratio , and oil cooler lines. 

Finishing electrical . Next step interior I'm hoping for a dyno visit in next month or so .

Last couple of weeks was quite intense . 

Rebuild and swap rear end to from 3.93 to 3.23 if I remember correctly . 

Install rear Bilstein shocks , custom build .

Finish building exhaust system ,  more wiring and car was Dyno tuned . 

First pit stop at the gas station in 25 years . 

Also leather arrived from Elmo Upholstery , will start working on that really soon . 

Car held up on a dyno for almost 1.5h , full partial etc throttle . 

I got A/C working !!!

Very happy how it drives and turns , I will have to add a rear sway bar in the future . 

Number from Dyno are now very impressive but I'm happy with 285 WRHP . 

Feels impressive on the road .
