1979 450sl Euro parts car
I have a 1979 450sl Euro car in the garage that needs to go, to make more room for the 107026 that has taken its place in the stable. I would be willing to sell the car as a whole, but at this point its highest and best use is as a parts car.
I am hanging onto the Euro bumpers, but that is about it. The Euro-spec engine is sound (ran when parked) but the tranny slips in reverse. At some point I will have to send this one to the breakers, but wanted to first offer parts here in case anyone is of need. The car is pretty complete, and parts are in decent shape save for some of the interior. No reasonable offer for parts will be refused, mostly I would like to see parts go where they are needed rather than to the yard.
I can chop sheet metal from the body if there are special needs for panels.
I have the headlight washer linkage and motor, the vacuum headlight switch, radiator and oil cooler, among other Euro parts. The car doesn't have Euro head or taillights.
The car (and I) are in Auburn, CA (Sacramento area).
