FS: 1978 Mercedes 450SLC
1978 Mercedes 450SLC in like new condition with new interior and new paint. I have owned the car for 3 years, driving mostly at weekends and adding around 3k miles whilst restoring. Car starts right up and transmission shifts smoothly.
Car has been an AZ car all its life and complete service/repair history from new through 116k miles(>$14k in receipts) accompanies car including manuals and original data card. Also included is the factory service manual on USB.
Extensive work completed on the car during my ownership is listed below:
In last 2000 Miles:
Transmission oil/filter change
Valve cover gaskets replaced
Upper/Lower Rad hose changed
Spark plugs/wires changed and dist cap
Fuel Pump(Bosch)/Accumulator/Filter change
Power steering filter
Driver/Passenger door weatherstripping
In last 500 Miles:
Interior/Trunk carpet(German Loop)
Known issues with car:
-AC/Heat does not work. The compressor engages as it should and runs however air from vents is not cold. Blower works and steps through speeds as expected. Center vents do not work unless manually moved to open position.
-Sunroof works smoothly if used only until half open. If opened fully, very slow to close.
-Very slow power steering leak. I have topped up the fluids once in the 3 years I have owned the car.
