Post FS: gas tank for 1980 SLC C107

I have nice gas tank with sending unit out of 450SLC (model C107) - $500 + S&H (send me offers.. if you need a tank, and we can talk).

I was looking for 450SL gas tank, found this really nice one. Got it home and figured out this came out of 450 SLC (or 380SLC) not SL... and they are not the same.. so it won't fit my car. The SLC doesn't have the convertible top bulge in the trunk so its larger - and probably holds more gas.

Have since located SL gas tank... and need to get rid of this one. My wife doesn't really want more junk laying around.

My car is Mercedes Benz R107 model, and this fits the C107 SLC's.

Should fit all year models.. which I think SLC was made: 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986
Although some places state it was made until 1980, then in 1981 it was avail in 380 SLC
After that is a different body style.. so I really doubt it would fit.

The tank is in really good condition, original paint still looks good, has nice "clink" sound.. not the dull thud sound. You can see in the pics I didn't do the 99 cent spray can of black paint... so you can see what it really looks like. The galvanized metal tank can be seen where the black paint is missing.

Has the gas tank sending unit... which are over $175 on eBay.

I'm sure this would work great, esp for east coast or northwest cars with high humidity.. these tanks seem to collect condensation on inside.. and rust from inside out.
