Right now, my 1974 Mercedes-Benz 280 sedan is receiving a modern upgrade. No, it’s not under the hood. Nor is it going to affect the way the old Benz rides and drives. Instead, it’s going to upgrade my aural experience. I’m having a new stereo installed thanks to our friends at Clarion.
What I’m not doing, however, is touching the lovely (and still working) Becker head unit that came from the factory. We’re working around that system and utilizing a Clarion Marine audio brain to control a handful of speakers. I’ll go into more details in an upcoming story (and a video as well).
An upgrade like this seems relatively simple, but it can dramatically upgrade your daily experience with your older vehicle. What other upgrades have you done (or are you considering) on any older machines in your fleet?
