Sorry for all the questions, but I like this thing... the ad mentions the glass stores in the doors, can you confirm that everything is there to mount the glass such that the car is watertight? I don't have a garage spot for it and would need to keep it outside!
To clarify response to ABLatham, is the wiper assembly included?
Can you tell us more about the radio install? Who did it, any alternator whine as is typical with RCA to MOST modules, steering wheel controls still work?
@amgjunkie Did you leave the cable and hardware place from the hood release, or pull everything when you installed the hood pins?
Any chance you have the wiper assembly? Plan to run this in a series that runs in the rain. Doesn't look like any harnesses have been cut, other than presumably the PSE harness?
Lap times at Road Atlanta? Has it run in any series races, or just track days?
I mean, its not my PERFECT w221 because I'd rather have one a couple years newer..... but this color combo is just bonkers beautiful in person. Actually I take it back, its really ugly and overdone, and no one should bid on it.
@Autocrat- Market Insights looks to be gleaned from the Maybach Wiki, which doesn't provide a reference for that information. Its something that's been thrown around since these were new, but I've yet to see anything definitive, and the more I learn about them, the less likely it seems to be based on fact rather than speculation. The idea that the W220 wasn't heavy duty enough is ridiculous - armored Pullman W220's weigh nearly a ton more than a 62. Just curious if a primary source exists.
Can anyone provide a reference regarding the Maybach being built on the W140 platform? It’s something that gets thrown around a lot when discussing these cars but I find to be odd given how much crossover there is in terms of mechanical suspension and interior components with the W220.
