WTB - fuel tank for '73-89 SL

Trying to restore an older, rough 1980 450SL with a bad (rusty) fuel tank. Mine is shot. Only option at this point is $585 from Adsit (used) . Are there any cheaper - rust free - used ones available?

I've tried all the usual MB parts places, searches, etc. No luck. Appreciate any ideas...

theres a guy on Ebay parting a 77 280SL I would think tank would be the same. He from west virginia so hes not asking a arm or a leg for stuff. Give him a email about it. his username is aylajae-123 he has stuff up now so just do advance search under his name for seller pick a item and ask him a questions about the tank. Good luck

Great! Yeah, the tanks are the same for all years. I'll do the search and contact him. Thank you!

He is selling parts for an SLC - tank is not compatable
