'89 300 TE,'80 230 CE
300 CE Widebody

AMG did not make one. The alternative is to use 500E front
fenders and Bumper. You will have to make up your own rear
flares . In '89 it was more likely to be a 3.2 litre. Valve clearance
intake cold .15mm, exhaust .30mm. Horsepower around 235,torque 317nm.Compression ratio 10:1.

AMG sure made one...320CE.
"1AMG" is currently owned by a poster "NickGed" aka "The Widebody" who posted above and is in the UK.
Original Strattons build as pictured below.
Believe only two made in RHD.




Only one known kit exists and it too resides in the UK.





I'm in the process of a replica/tribute build based on patterning the kit.





The Stratton cars were the earliest builds using the M103-12V expanded to 3.2L.
My research shows that no widebody 124 coupes were built in the USA and Germany built a few V8 C124 widebodies.
Japan has built several but difficult to track.

The C124 widebody is probably one of the rarest AMG builds.

124 320ce amg widebody twin turbo, the nail
rich moulton seems to be a previous owner of my car!!!!

looks like he tried to find its provenance, couldn't, and sold it, probably due to the voltage op relay and faulty rotor arm, which was causing it to run badly when I purchased it.

I am not going to discuss or post anything about the ricer mods i do to my cars any more.

I am tired of having to take my time to justify myself.

if you have normal power output, go look on 190.rev for the 6 speed options available.

basically 6 speed m111 engines, just use their clutches and possibly flywheels, to overcome the difference in input shaft sizes.

I did,
it validated the possibility that this is the same car.

And Widebody, you save time if you just skip over responding to critics. Your car is interesting and belongs here.
