Newbie from New Jersey


I have a '73 450 SL that has been in my family for over 30 years (2nd owners). The car was from the grey market and the first owner customized the interior, grill and wheels. I replaced the wheels with OEM chromes. Although the seats are not original, they are nice leather and I want to keep them. I do want to replace the shag carpet though.

I am really a Jag man (XKE, XJ6, X-Type), but when my Dad was given the opportunity to buy the car for half the going price at the time (divorcee that said the car reminded her of her "X" and wanted to dump it), I told him to jump on it.

Basic maintenance has kept her going strong all these years (bullet-proof). I have a tranny bushing problem and the forum has been great help.

Thanks and save the classics...
