Bloody hell. These crayford converted motors are rare things, but this particular one not my cuppa personally, w116 estates and SEL 6.3 (one of their most famous conversions I think) of which i've attached photos have to be some of my favourites, nonetheless, Interesting old motor this and I'd be interested to see what it ends up fetching.

Got a bit curious so did a bit of bedtime browsing..

Crayford Convertible Car Club - Mercedes Benz

Interesting read. Turns out that the St Tropez w123 at the time was a low production car (as expected) but also a best seller..

Crayford club also state only one St Tropez is known to them, so I wonder if this is the one? Who knows!

There were also some conversions on W108 280SE models ; I only ever saw one .

The W116 used some Ford Granada components .

There were a few W123 cabrio conversions , done on the continent , always based on the Coupes .

I wonder if Steve mcQueen had anything to say about the " Bullit proof testing " ?

There are a few spelling howlers in that sheet .
 
A couple of minor issues maybe, but nothing that won't buff out.
 
1,550 in the end, god only knows how much will need to be planted to make this mint (probably a lot considering crayford bits were one off production and whatnot.. will require a lot of work I’d assume)

..but since it’s such a rare car seems worth it for the right person!
