Come see it and I will take you for a ride.
I am listing a 1979 Mercedes Benz 450SL Convertible Roadster. V8, automatic
Runs perfect, and shifts smooth! 126K on the odometer.
Low miles for this year. Many more miles to go.
Floors and rockers are solid!
Here's what was done in the last six months, then of course parked for the winter in the garage.
ALL THE PARTS I USED WERE FROM MERCEDES, NOT AFTERMARKET JUNK!!!!!!
New convertible top
New Napa Gold Battery
New timing chain just done. "just maintenance", the old one didn't break!
New chain guide rails
New chain tensioner
New cam oilers
New fuel filter
New valve cover gaskets
New thermostat and gasket
New anti freeze
New oil and filter
New Sony explode stereo, with USB drive, and new Sony 6X9 speakers.
This car does not leak fluids anywhere. It runs extremely well, and shifts like new.
When it was parked, I filled the tank, and used Stabil in the fuel, and a battery tender is on it. It will start right up, and go! It has plenty of power!
Okay, the reason I don't want $12,000 for this car!
The paint is nice, for except the top of the roof, "hardtop" is faded along with the top of the hood.
The odometer stopped working right before inspection in August. It is a easy fix. Pop the steering wheel, and remove the cluster, "easy to do" and replace the gear set for $50.00. I seen the DIY on you tube.
Tires are great, steering is nice and tight, all the gauges and original clock works.
The A/C belt is not on, due to the idler pulley that hooks to it, is frozen. Heat works good. Although I would think this is a summer car for the top down and car cruises.
Comes with all original owners manuals!
This is truly a nice car. And I have it priced right!
5000 obo. CASH ONLY!
Any other questions, please ask!
