New top... fits 107 1979 450SL FOR SALE

I have a brand new top that I was going to get the video and try to install myself, however, Feb second my SL was hit and ultimately written as totaled by the insurance. That left me with a new top and one cable that I didn't want to give to whatever salvage was going to get it. So for you guys in the 107 section, contact me. Really, if your wanting to finish off your SL, I think this might fit more than just a 79 model, and this might work for you. I'll let it go cheap ............Rich

IT's GONE sorry.

Hey Gohot, sorry to hear about your loss. I read the deer incident thread and was hoping you could get the SL fixed and continue to enjoy it.

2 Questions: What did they offer as a total loss price? It seems the price on these cars is close to 10 grand. Also, if the top is still available, what color is it?

Thanks and hope you find another SL to ride in

Cheers.

I hadn't followed that thread and I am now shocked. Very sorry to head and hope the insurance loss can work out to be a financial gain. If the top is not sold, I will pay, assuming it is black cloth.
