smithenhiven, isn't the S600 a chain driven RWD car? Was the car in its current condition when you bought it, or are you the restorer?
Yes, the S600 is chain drive (all S500s and S600s were chain drive, as well as some of the "early" S800 cars).
The car is how I purchased it. Although the body is almost in imaculate condition, the interior needs completely redone.
Also, the hydrolic brake and clutch cylinders need rebuilt, and before I can take it on the road, I need to find a reputable company that can reline brake drum shoes.
And if it wasn't for the hardtop, I'd have no top at all. The soft top, and the soft top framing are long gone. But, since I only plan on taking the car out on nice warm sunny days, I should be able to do with just a toneau cover (who will know that there's no top under the cover anyway :P).
I've only owned the car for a few months now, this is actually my second S600. Here is my previous 65 LHD S600 that I sold in order to have a nice down-payment towards my "new" one.
All I can say is that it is a beautiful car, and I am intensely jealous. I wish you the best of luck with it and getting the interior in. And if for some strange reason you're ever in GA with it, I want a ride!
