I'm so upside down in this car it's ridiculous, but I enjoyed the process of bringing it back, and now it's time for someone else to enjoy it.
1978 450SL, with both hard and soft top. If you want details on what's been done with it, look for my threads in the 107 forum. I posted here from the time I bought it until I was finished, so everything (including the mistakes) is in there. I've put about $25K into it, mostly in a professional paint job. This wasn't a tape & spray job, this was a full strip of everything, and all new seals and rubber when it got put back together. On both the car and hard top, by the way. It's also had the transmission rebuilt, suspension rebuild, upholstery & carpet replaced, soft top replaced, vacuum system completely gone through, etc. It comes with the recommended compression kit to R&R the suspension, a fuel pressure kit for the Bosch K-Jetronic, and a few spare parts. Oh, and the Mercedes windscreen is included. It lets you drive top-down in colder weather or take the Significant Other without getting glares about hair being whipped around. The color is original, Mercedes called it British Red, but it's really orange. It's the only 107 I've seen this color and, frankly, when I first got it I planned to change the color. By the time it was ready for paint the color had grown on me and I had it redone in the original.

It was originally purchased in SoCal, went to Las Vegas, then to Southern Utah, then back to SoCal. Never in snow, absolutely no rust anywhere. The AC and heater work, with a digital replacement for the disaster-prone ACCII unit originally in the car.
The WUR is getting ready to go. If the car is started when the temperatures are in the high 60s to low 80s it runs beautifully. If it's colder or warmer than that, it lopes because the fuel control pressure is off. The WUR is $650 for an original part. The same company that made the digital ACCII replacement also makes a digital WUR replacement that is NOT CARB (California Air Resource Board) approved and can't legally be used on a California car. That doesn't stop it from being popular, and it's available for $600.
If you want a perfect drive-off car, the price is $6,000 and I'll get the OEM WUR and replace it with your $1,000 deposit and a week wait. If you want to replace (or have replaced) the WUR yourself with whatever you choose (OEM or digital), the price is $5,000. I'm happy to let you or your designated representative verify how it runs and that everything is working the way it's presented in the photos/videos. It's currently registered as Planned Non-Operational, so it can't be driven on the streets, but I live in a gated community where the roads are all private. You can drive it around my community without fear of a ticket.
PM me here if you're interested and I'll reply with my mobile number.
ETA: I also have a hard top cart and hard top hoist so one person can install/remove the hard top. Since I won't have any use for it, that would obviously also go with the car. But I'm not sure how you'd fit the cart in the car unless you picked it up when it was warm and could drive it away top down.
And edited again to add: I have a complete set of MB service manuals that will also go with the car. Chassis & body 1/2, Engine (M116 & M117), Heating/Cooling/Auto Climate Control.
