Hi all,

I'm moving to California and I'm not bringing my 560SEL with me. I will post an ad on Craigslist sometime soon, but wanted to give you first dibs. Here are the basics -- feel free to PM me or post to this thread for more details.

-178k miles.

-No rust (recent $3200 bodywork completed to remove all rust -- no Bondo or other fillers used). Body is perfect!

-Everything works but the A/C (again).

-The transmission was rebuilt almost 3 years ago, but it's been leaking and flaring a little between 2nd and 3rd gears for the past year and a half at least. For what it's worth, it hasn't gotten any worse.

- New tires and front end work.

- Timing chain replaced about 6 months ago as part of maintenance.

- I have all service records for the car going back to the mid-90s.

- Garaged at home, garaged at work.

The original plan was to keep this car indefinitely, and I've taken care of it accordingly. But plans change, and I can't justify driving a 560SEL around California every day, with gas prices being as ridiculous as they are on the West Coast. So, sadly, it has to go. Let's say $3500. I'm located in Boston.

I can't find most of my car pictures, so I'm just attaching one here. I'll post more soon, if anyone is interested.
