Mercedes W126 Factory Tow Hitch

Have you ever seen one of these? This is a Mercedes W126 380SEC 500SEC 560SEC Factory Tow Hitch. These rare tow hitches are mounted on each side by 3 bolts and a backing plate for reinforcement. I was not able to verify if the bumper was unique to cars with the tow hitch or if a modification was required. The entire tow hitch assembly sells over $1,000 USD on the open market. Not many will tow something with an old SEC but its cool to see that Mercedes took the time to make a tough and durable tow hitch for it. Its a cool and very rare item and important to document.

This hitch requires wiring in the trunk for the power connector.

Above: On the the trunk lid is a label explaining how the tow hitch adapter should be mounted. This sticker is rare but someone is making reproductions.
