Long-time lurker and lifelong fan of these cars. Truth be told, this acquisition is the culmination of a childhood dream. My first car was a hand-me-down 1986 300E and my (early) childhood dream car was the W124 AMG Hammer, until the 500E came along with its sexy widebody fenders and Porsche pedigree. The only thing I could imagine being sweeter was a 6.0 conversion.
I actually came up on two 036's recently. The first one being a black pearl that I managed to trade a 71' El Camino for (long story). However, the real love is the silver one with Renntech conversion that I found shortly after. The black pearl will be up for sale shortly after I get a coupe items on it ironed out for the next owner.
I purchased the Renntech car directly from Renntech as it was on consignment from one of their long-time customers.
1-owner 133k miles. Miles seemed high but its obvious the owner was very caring with it as the condition is lightyears ahead of the black pearl one, despite similar mileage.
Needless to say, I am excited to be this vehicle's caretaker for as long as I can be.
