I am interested in the ECU. Please PM me. thanks

No, currently Augusta, GA.
I have several ECU's that I have accumulated during the years as spares. Some are tested and working and some are unknown. Some are from sedans and will work fine in a SL or SLC but have different mounting.

Unfortunately I do not think I have any of the items that you mentioned. The car had no floors or trunk to speak of due to rust damage and the interior was also severely weather beaten. I still have quite a few boxes to go through and if I find some of the smaller items you mentioned, I will post a photo.

I need the little plastic label with PRNDSL on it next to the shifter. Any chance it is in usable shape?

1973 450SL PARTING OUT-450-parts-9.jpg

1973 450SL PARTING OUT-450sl-parts-10.jpg
1973 450sl front calipers on top and the ones I found in the trunk below them. The originals are different and smaller. Almost like rear calipers. The others seem from a later model(they are the same as on my 1975) and were probably intended as an upgrade by the PO. It looks like someone rebuild them at some point but I would not trust it as they have been sitting for a long time and in my opinion are only good as a candidate for another rebuild. One of the knowledgeable people here on the forum might know when the switch was made by the Mercedes. This particular 450sl also had no passenger side rear view mirror or headrests.
The steering gear box moves freely but I have no idea how loose it is. Another rebuild/reseal candidate?
These items are heavy and I would prefer a pick up but will ship if needed.

Something is not right with that. I only see two port connections. Is it the angle? I'll go look at my spares.

Edit. It is the angle and position that makes it look strange. Sorry for the interruption.

I will let you know tomorrow. I do believe I removed the whole shifter assembly but don't remember what condition it was in.
