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 for $2,000 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.

AMG Rear Speaker Deck Restoration Project

As part of an ongoing 1983 500SEC AMG restoration project, It is time to restore the rear interior deck. On the AMG option list back in the 1980’s you could select a multiple speaker checklist as an upgrade. This fiberglass interior decklid was completely new. No longer was the first ad kit compartment located on the rear deck. The new fiberglass rear deck included 2 8 inch subswoofers side by side towards the center of the deck and hidden by a rectangle cover. Since bass is omni-directional this worked very well. On each side of the decklid are 4 inch speaker and 2 2 inch tweeters side by side. In total , there are a total of 8 speakers on this deck. My favorite feature of this rear deck are the metal directional fins installed over the 4 inch speakers to direct sound toward the front of the cabin.
