SOLD Rare W460 special hood prop to increase access

Post#1 » Sun Jan 12, 2020 1:58 pm

This is a nifty little item I have not ever seen anywhere else. It mounts to the Pedal box up by the hood hinge and will keep the 460 hood open a lot more than it does with the normal rod. It has a strap which fastens to the hood to keep it from opening too far (ie into the windshield). I have no idea what it is worth so make me an offer and we will go from there. I moved this from Gwagen to Gwagen over the years until I ran out of 460's so it should go be useful for someone here.

Sold! I can post more detailed photos before dispatching this - it is not too complicated to make one I would not think.

This is a nice little bit of kit. I had it on the 1985 300GD that I used to own and got another early on for my 280GE last year. It would be cool to see these reproduced. I could have the straps made here for pretty cheap.

It is funny, cuz I was just thinking about this today :lol:

When I get a chance I will post pics with the dimensions. The strap would be a key piece. The rest is just simple bent metal and a rod.
