Seems this car is being tortured, work being done sporadically. Car has good potential, some seriousness is required here.

Cheers harit
This is a 3 year old post. I hope this W108 is rescued and is on the road now. Its anyway hard to find W108s. This particular car is a column shift model, which is more desirable, at least as far as I am concerned.

Have seen it parked near your place! LOVED IT!

Could you confirm that MHH is a Poona registration?

"Jacques Saoutchik, Maître Carrossier" a recently published magnus opum on this carrossier. Authors are Perter Larsen and Ben Erickson.

So was there another "Indian" (Alwar) Mercedes SS, that too with a Saoutchik body ?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The "Cannes" body on the SS would have looked very similar to the picture below. We saw one take top honours at Pebble Beach, 2012.

Hey Amit, are you saying we drive ugly cars over here ? Just kidding of course!!!!

You are absolutely right - I cannot believe what U.S. emissions and crash laws did to once lively (and gorgeous) cars like the MGB, E-Type, Alfa Romeo, Mercedes.......the list is endless.

Lucky many of these cars had "good bones" in their DNA to still keep them reasonably attractive.
