FS 1979 Green 450 SEL

I have a 1979 450 SEL that "shows" a little over 12,000 miles on the speedometer. The car was a gift from a third party that has since died and no one seems to be able to determine the true mileage of the car. The interior with the exception of the driver's seat is like new, but I believe it has to have more miles on it than 12,000 due simply to various signs of wear and the cosmetics of the engine.

The air conditioner compressor is locked up and needs total replacement. We spent right at $4000 with a mechanic who got it running after having set from 1989 until about 6 months ago. It runs great and is very smooth. The reason I am selling it is that everyone tells me that it would not be unheard of to drop another 4 to 8 grand on this car in the future. I like it, but do not have any sentimental attachment to it and since I have three other cars and a two car carport and only one wife that wants it gone it is up for sale. I look at the NADA values and they say it's worth 6 to 9 thousand, but when I ask some of the local Mercedes shops they say this particular model car is not desireable no matter the condition and I should take what I can get.

The car can be viewed by going to: www.hallpuckett.com/450gallery

I'm looking for any reasonable offer.

I'm a diesel sort of guy, but that car is very tempting. I'm in Austin, so it would be easy for me to get over there. Let me think about it.

I'm just looking for an excuse to do a minor road trip in it before selling it. There is a great BBQ joint at the Blinn College exit off 290 in Brenham. I could meet you there this weekend if you were up for it.
