1985 500 SEL

Hey Benzworld,

Looking forward to my new project.





My father-in-law gave me his dad's old 500 Sel. It has a some sentimental value and he didn't want it to leave the family but, it had to get out of the garage or be sold. A little history, He and his father purchased two new cars together in 1985. A 911 turbo and this Mercedes and he still owns both. His father passed away about 5 yrs ago and the car has only been started a few times since (at least 3 yrs). I have no plans to do anything to the car besides the obvious, brakes, tune-up, fluid change, and I;ll probably drain the gas. I've already used the search function and there seems to be a wealth of info on this older car. Anyways looking forward to getting this car back on the road.

If there is anything I need to look out for before I begin I'd appreciate the heads up.
