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.

It has 18,000 original miles on it. All fire pump equipment in rear of cab has been removed and its an open shell to be used as is or to be up fitted for a more permanent camper status, etc. The rear side and back doors roll up for convenience and/ or open air camping. Has an OM 314 diesel motor – know to run 500K miles without issue. These vehicles are super popular for overlanders as they are very reliable and rarely break down over long distances. All lights, gauges, etc in working order. A small bit of surface rust in some spots, but overall in very solid condition. Under carriage is rust free. Great fun to run with rear doors open and a very cool vehicle for weekends with the family or promotional for business. Good hauler as well for dirt bike, mountain bike, etc. Super fun to drive and always a conversation starter. Rare to find in USA and getting harder to find in Europe.
