I have owned a 2800cs since Dec 2018. the car has been repainted in the color grey, the original color was Chamonix. The condition of the car was poor with a worn engine and leaks on all seals of the gearbox and engine. I have now overhauled the engine and fitted the gearbox with new seals. I also replaced the sheet metal in a few well-known places. I enjoy reading the expert comments on this forum and learning a lot from them. Greetings Hans

Welcome Hans. Makes sense that with the Dutch being the tallest people headrests were deemed futile for them.
Nice car!

Hi adawil2002, thank you for your welcome message. I hope you had a nice trip in the Netherlands. Unfortunately I can't use my car yet because it is disassembled in the garage. greeting Hans

Hi Hans,

I'm not (yet) member of the coupe club, possibly next year. My car is an 2800CS automatic of july 1969, so it's a pretty early car

Hello Henny, your car looks beautiful, the leather upholstery fits nicely with the white color. I hope my car looks like this one day. Gr Hans
