I suddenly find myself with too many cars and not enough garage space, so one has to go. I've decided my 450SL is the one.

Original paint shines nicely, but shows its age in places where its a bit thin, has a minor ding, or minor scratches.
Engine runs well
Recent water pump and muffler
Proper german ignition parts, hose clamps and other bits
Transmission shifts perfectly
Stops well, suspension is tight... minimal play in steering
R12 AC still works, but its hard to tell how well in December
Rebuilt climate control servo works most of the time, vents open and close properly
Cruise control works
Becker Mexico cassette just serviced, sounds great
Original hirschmann power antenna works
Soft top in pretty good condition
Includes original hardtop with a stand
Original tool roll, spare, and jack in trunk
Only major issue is the temperature gauge doesn't work or reads incorrectly.
Nearly rust free, with the exception of one spot at the rear passenger side floor thats more of an issue of missing undercoating rather than serious rot.
Its not a perfect car, but its a nice car... looking for $5500 or best offer. Although I've only driven it locally recently, it would probably make a longer highway trip without any issue.
I'm pretty picky when it comes to these cars (although I don't post much here), so I can say that this one does feel right. Its not perfect cosmetically, but its a great driver you don't mind parking at the supermarket!
Located in Morristown, NJ. I'm comfortable with shipping domestically or over seas as long as buyer makes the arrangements and funds clear before pickup.
