FS: 74 MB 450 SEL Illinois

For Sale

I'm listing this on behalf of a friend of mine who wants to see this go to a good home rather than post this on Craigslist or evilBay.

1974 Mercedes Benz 450 SEL Automatic.
164,xxx miles. Runs and drives well.
This was his daily driver until last year when it became a weekend cruiser.
Now it's collecting dust in his garage.

The good:
Mechanically good condition and well maintained. Original paint.
Always starts right up and runs smoothly. Has good acceleration and power.
Drives straight with no pulling under braking. Suspension nominal.
Has recent typical tune up items (air and gas filter, plugs, wires, cap a rotor)
Newer tires with lots of tread left.

The bad:
Beginning to show some surface rust under paint imperfections.
Idles high even after warm up (about 1,000 RPM).
AC does not work (may need recharge or may need repair - now just blows warm air).
Interior has wear typical of the mileage but no major rips and tears.
Intermittent electrical gremlins regarding interior lighting.
Missing fuse box cover and also a few damaged miscellaneous parts.


$2,500
Located in DeKalb, Illinois.

PM me if interested and I will get you into contact with the owner.

Here are some pictures.
Many more are available that I can email to you upon request.

Still available.

Anyone who buys this will have the opportunity to get a '78 450 SEL parts car for very little cost or can take parts from it. This 2nd car is mine and I'm listing it separately.

4 - Brand new in box Wolfrace rims 15" also available.

Make offer on the 1974 vehicle.
