1983 500SL AMG 5 SPEED GETRAG 55k miles 2 tops

harassment from member "LUKE COLORADO" has caused me to drop the ad and no longer offer it for sale on this site.

Pics of the engine bay? Are there any AMG stickers on the valve covers? All but last six of the VIN? Any documents from AMG?

If that is really a Euro AMG 500SL with high compression engine, TRY-Y's and 5 speed Getrag, then it could be one of only six or so in the US.
Local member 48hp has a black AMG documented 5-speed 500SL, but his has more visible goodies like the short Euro bumpers with all AMG cladding, front and trunk spoilers etc.

I think I've been nice and I provided the craigslist seller the information about this car being possibly one of another six documented in the United States. The seller on craigslist told me the car was sold. I find it hard to believe that the car sold and was relisted by a Benz world new member so quickly. I have to say that it seems that the seller is fishing for information and not really interested in selling the car.
