1973 450slc euro? with AMG rally kit

I found this on craigslist - very interesting

Mercedes AMG SLc

Quote from Member & 240d driver jsl@gorge -
"I really love these engines with a stick-- really gives you a true race car feel.Yes thats right! You have to really work it to get speed out of em- like an indy car. Fast around corners cause it is very stable w ind/sus unseen during those years in American cars, and lots of noise to get it done. Speed is relative and an illusion so you get to cheat the cops out of tickets with all the giddyness of a Le Mans driver."

My first guess is that the CL poster stuck "AMG" in the subject line to get hits. Looking at the pictures, I'm thinking this is someone's idea of a project car and that AMG had nothing to do with this car ever. Seller says nothing about mileage, condition, etc other than "runs good". Nice that it is 1973 and has the small bumpers.
