Love the colour on this as well. Personally I find the Euro version of the bumper and headlights more to my taste as well.

My 1967 250 says hello!

 By: cfnissen : January 2nd, 2021-13:45
Aaaand a few watch-related pictures. Claus ...  

Yes! 1967 all the way

 By: cfnissen : January 5th, 2021-20:44
Hi Amanico, I can confirm that my Polaris is a 1967 model as well, as you can see on the picture. The note was the feedback from a verification done by the Manufacture during a visit in 2018 So in that way, it’s a full 1967 set - the Pagoda and the Polari...  

I have to stop and think every time I read the note.

 By: cfnissen : January 6th, 2021-08:05
I believe the large number and the year refers to the caliber 825 and not the reference E859 (Polaris).

And they actually add ‘date de sortie de la montre juin 1967}’ below...

 By: cfnissen : January 6th, 2021-08:07
which translates into production date of the watch, June 1967, if my French language skills serve me correctly.

Here’s the inside view

And hello from another 67 250sl

This was taken in Greece a few years ago. A vintage get together. Four Mercedes SL in this shot. They are such reliable cars. Took mine on a European tour a couple of years ago. It’s now in having a frame off restoration. ...  

Mine is the silver black.

Although I am rather partial to the silver red combination... I took the Greek picture as I was contemplating changing the paint during the restoration - I ultimately kept it original.
