Bringing back the Puch to her original glory or near to, selling a ML interior which is ready for transplant in any W460 / 461 LWB
It's about 2 front seats and the rear bench in a good condition black leather - front seats are electric with memory and heating - they will be sold with base box from LWB and the wiring to ease the installation
The whole is located in the Netherlands
Asking price 600 Euro OBO

I will post pictures later


What year ML seats were you able to fit?? I was thinking of doing the same if not original in my 460 but I am in NY

Thanks Alan, I have a 1985, dashboard and console which I am planning to upgrade to the 1990-2000, any of Mercedes dashboards fits ? My main concerns is the console and the odometer with its case

Recommend against trying to do this.

Are your 460 gauges malfunctioning?

early 463 gauges are similar to 460 / 461 - but for speedo, the angle to fit the linkage at speedo and the coefficient are different hence won't fit
You can could fit an electrical speedometer

There is a company out of Los Angeles that has 90 degree adapter that may work for the tight turn needed. They have different ratios that can adapt for different wheel size ratios as well. It makes it possible to use a speedo gauge from a W124 etc.

The have more flexible cable options as well.

I found them to be very helpful. I think I may have found them on ebay or something.

You are welcome!

Funny I thought twice about posting it as I wasn't sure it would be helpful given we are a little off track from the subject at hand.
