new owner of vintageMB says hello
I just became the owner of a 1973 450SL which was originally sold as a 350SL. First problem encountered was buying wrong replacement battery based on telling parts store it was a 450SL. The documentation from dealer says 450SL but manual says 350SL. The seller told me it was one of the first 450s sold in California. I have quite a bit of original documentation but it mentions none of the numbers used here to identify the vehicle. The VIN is only 14 digits so that search didn't work either. I will post some photos soon. If you know any of the early history of what happened that year I'd love to learn it.
