Now that REALLY is car of the week. No run-flats; no need to park with care; no need to worry about speeding fines; park in a loading zone...
If I had room I would truly want this.
Imagine the look on the face of the service consultant when you rock up to Mercedes-Benz Sydney and ask for an A service. Priceless.
Regards,
Brian

That'd be cool with a fifth wheel motor home.

That is a gem Michel.
A true legend truck.

Oh and guess what Brian.
Most of these 180hp trucks were 6 speed manuals!
Right up your alley mate.
The bigger ones with 2 sets of drive wheels were 10 speed, even better.

I was laughing loudly thinking about you in the queue of the service department :oops:

You’re right Ant, a massive motor home behind this gem, un hitch, then drive into town.

It would also be cool to see it at the annual Mercedes-Benz club display day/concours.

Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh NO.

I’ve been working with trucks for 43 years now, and the very last thing I would ever do is own one :ROFLMAO:

However I have to agree, it would be the coolest vehicle on display.
Especially with a straight through exhaust :eek:

Spotted this 300 across the road from a job today, unregistered but looks to be in fantastic condition.

This is a tale of two 1979 6.9s, both Aussie delivery, both in nice shape.

They are both up at the lloyds auction.

The first is 6132 a 12/79 complianced model:

The second is 6032, also 12/79

Only 100 cars apart and both for sale at the same time.

I would have the blue one, mostly because it seems in slightly better shape and I much prefer the colour.

Good morning chaps.

Two very nice 6.9’s.
I’m thinking they will pull good (if not in sane) money.

Ant,
Did you buy the twin axle delivery van?
It looked great.
