Unhappy Wife Wants to Sell Her '73 450SL

Well, I hate to see it go but after all it is her car (inheritance from her father). It's a 73 450SL, starts right up, runs, and drives fine. 113,523 miles on the clock. White exterior and blue interior. Hardtop in great condition and the blue soft top looks almost new, seats are in great condition for being 113K miles old

As for the issues: The transmission leaks, steady drip but still driveable. The trunk has surface rust on the inside but no perforations through the body. The interior could probably use a new center console as seen in the pictures below. At some point in the car's life someone lifted it incorrectly and broke the undercoating, there is rust at almost all four corners and will need new metal welded in. Front right fender has an obvious repair job, front right has rust developing over the headlight.

I wish I could keep the car and fix her up but I just don't have the time and it's taking up space in the garage. Price is negotiable because I really have no idea what it's worth.
