Incredible 80s Barn Find Mercedes AMG Hammer V8 Wide-Body Coupe. This barnfind episode was unexpected, as Jonny Smith was paying a visit to film Neville Brown’s Merc Brabus/AMG Car Cave for a previous episode (watch it here if you haven’t already: https://youtu.be/STFBnwHso7I ) until it was mentioned that a certain rare unrestored 500 SEC AMG had been sitting gathering dust since about 2006.
One thing led to another and Jonny slipped on the BFF (Barn Find Fleece) to see if they could fire up the ‘Hammer’ DOHC headed V8 Coupe and tell its fascinating backstory.
