Good news______Bad news
Good: Just bought a 1973 450 SLC. Body is in great shape, don't think I will find much rust. I believe it has been in the s/w USA all those years. Interior pretty nice. Wheels roll, brakes work. (on & off tow truck)
Not so: Engine has over 165k on it. I have a 99 SLK with about the same mileage and it runs like a top, hoping for same results.
Bad: Pack rats also liked it, some wiring chewed, looks to be limited to engine bay. Not sure how long since it has run as I bought it from an auction. Battery was less than 1 volt.
I love a good project.......................... Let the fun begin!
