History
Car came from Germany in mid-1980s and seemed to "sneak in" without any DOT docs! I'm driving contraband! Apparently can legally import by driving into Canada, grabbing lunch and then re-entering with my docs in hand in order to make my mobile "illegal alien" able to get her green card! Speedometer was changed when brought to US so the KM is unknown but only 15k miles since arriving stateside 30 years ago! Very clean underside with crack free dash and nice original leather. She has had an easy life...but needs some love.
1971 Mercedes-Benz 350SL (Silver)

Modifications

Interior
Classic blue leather in great shape for a 44 year old! No dash cracks and door cards are in excellent shape. Not perfect, but very respectable. Self realing seat belts (438)
Exterior
Originally a 717 Papyrus White car but was changed to 180 silver while in Germany. Extensive energy was taken to eliminate any sign of white as all paint under hood is silver as are all normally painted surfaces underneath or inside car.
Audio
Missing the factory delivered Becker Mexico (w/ Cassette...code 510) but the front mounted power antenna still runs up and down.
Suspension
New, new, new. Shocks, control arms, complete brake system (booster to calipers and everything in between)
