F/S 1979 MERCEDES BENZ 450 SL - 60,690 MILES

This very nice 1979 example has only traveled 60,690 miles from new. It is Midnight Blue with Tan Interior. The car has both the hardtop and soft top, euro headlights, wood steering wheel, an upgraded stereo and the original radio, full power. The body is clean and straight and the paint shows well. The interior is in excellent condition. It runs and drives as a Mercedes should. The car is being sold because the owner passed away and his wife is liquidating the estate. Asking $13,500.

Location, location, location! There isn't a location listed in your bio and you don't state where Merc is located currently. I don't recognize the plate.

Are you willing to have a local mechanic perform a pre-purchase inspection?

One owner car or more? Records available? VIN available for VIN check?

Thank you.

Your right.

Follow the email address identifier "sellyourporche.com" found in the above posts and the google link trail ends up at "sellyoursportscar.net", and you can find the same car there with 20 pictures.

That explains the 5K price drop and the poor widow come on. Needs to come down another 5K in today's market if the poor widow really wants/needs to sell it.
