$ 400 slc at impound auction!!

while i was on one of those"state sponsored vacations" my 74 slc dissappeared at last weeks local impound auction there was a 73 450 slc i went hoping not to spend over a $2000 the car was marked "no run,motor locked up" on the winshield after realizing all fluids were perfect,engine compartment pristine,body straight&original i decided she had to be mine.The key which was broke off in the lock was a major pain but after being able to budge the engine w\a wrench on a pulley i removed the cylinder & she fired on half a revolution!!! just got back from running the half tank she had & refilling w/premium the car is mechinacally flawless had her up to 125{would have gone all the way if not for the stock wheel&tires,orig hubcaps even} Here's a picture taken at the impound yard http://www.benzworld.org/forums/atta...1&d=1223957610

Nice find, good luck getting some keys made for it, I hear you'll need the title, your drivers license, and your birth certificate at the M-Benz dealership for them to order a key for it.
