    560 Sec Amg DOHC Teasing

    Hi Guys !!. Just want to share with you my proyect. I bought a 560 Amg DOHC wide body in very good condition and very low mileage. But beside that, I decided to do it again. I purchase over 70 new MB oem parts, paint it again, buy all the interior parts, woods, plastics, leather, etc. For all of that there are a few people with the only mision to finish it in museum condition.
    When I finish it I will post all the after, during and before pics and maybe a vid.
    Here are some pics, just to tease.

    Re: 560 Sec Amg DOHC Teasing

    There is a 560 SEC with an AMG badge mouldering away in the parking lot of our building, which is used as overflow parking for the exotic dealer across the street. Tires almost flat, non original wheels, paint flaking everywhere, plastics cracked, heavily tinted windows which are peeling, injection parts sitting in a cardboard box in the passenger seat. Interior terribly faded and cracked. If I get the VIN can you tell if it's a legit AMG?

    No, we can't because MB didn't have any AMG-related codes back when the C126 was made; all conversions were done separately and there was no relationship between the companies, thus no integration. The car would have to have records from AMG of work done.

    Hi Guys, finally, after 3 years of work, the car is finally ready. I don´t know if the work worth it because the car was in very good condition, but when I started I just start replacing almost everything. In fact, from Germany, they sent a "flying doctor" of AMG with the manual to do a big maintance on the engine and gear box. I will post the hole story with tons of pis. To start on, this a recent front pic of the final result.

    Re: 560 Sec Amg DOHC Teasing

    The car was in very good condition (9/10). We start with minors details of the car and then we decide to try to live it 10/10. So the work started 3.5 years ago. First the engine, fisrt time that here in Chile, the official dealer saw one, so they ask for help and AMG sent a mechanic that make a total service of the car. He took like one month, we replace all the rubbers, little parts of the engine so it looks new. After that we painted all again under his supervision, all the car naked. The fenders was a mess because it was very hard to live them perfect, the fiber is to soft and needs different temperatures in the painting process. After that we start with the "chromes movie" hahaha, finding all of them. Finally we did it. All the the chromes new. The wheels also full repairs and painted again. Then the woods, we found a dealer that had all the wood new so we bought them and then we fixed the one that comes with the car and I have it for replacement. I will upload some videos of the sound of the car and the way it runs. Amazing. Hope you enjoy this little history.

    That is an insane restoration, I can hardly contain my jealousy. If I were to undertake a project of this magnitude, I'd probably ruin it by trying squeeze a M278 or some other nonsense into it. God that's a gorgeous car.

    Re: 560 Sec Amg DOHC Teasing

    The front ones on the Widebody looks like a 8.5x17 et 18 and not like a 9.0

    8.5 comes with 1.5" outside Barrels, the 9.0 with same center, 2.0".

    Re: 560 Sec Amg DOHC Teasing

    Not many people realize AMG had OZ Racing made a pretty rare front centre with a 6.5" barrel / 2" lip / centre still stamped ET18 but 1/2" shallower rear mount hub so the spec remains 8.5" ET18
    I own 3 x pairs of these of which a pair is on my white coupe and another pair on my SEL which allows a deeper 2inch lip in standard body format - but also allows a deep lip in widebody format.
    So a 2.5 inch lip gives you are 9" width or a 3 inch lip gives you 9.5" width or 4 inch lip gives you a 10" width for a widebody.
    My final pair are going on my black 560SEC widebody tribute project.

    This rare front combo is why some AMG widebody coupes look like they have serious dish compared to others and definitely no spacers used on front or rear with rear running either a 4 inch lip to create 11inch or 4.5inch lip gives you 11.5" or 5 inch lip to create a 12inch rear depending on what was chosen for the front.
    In some cases you see standard width rims were used but just spaced out with spacers which is not a good look for a widebody
