After thinking and looking for probably over 20 years, I bought a 74 450SL last week. The car's still in Seattle, so I have yet to see it. It's rust free, perfect original black interior, and "only" 119k miles.

I'm going to have it shipped down to So Cal to share garage space with my G/F's 280SL. I'll fly out there next spring and drive it back.

How tough is it to locate the 72-73 chrome bumpers? I think mine have too much black plastic on them :)

Welcome to the fray... Hope you receive your car soon so you can begin to enjoy it. Searching for 20 years... You deserve a treat!

I saw some non-DOT bumpers on ebay the other day... They show up from time to time. Contact member fochman... he sometimes reports in with newly acquired SL's he is dismantling...

Thanks, Ears....PM already sent. Any other parts sources you're aware of, besides ebay?
