1978 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

This car lived on the Long Beach Peninsula in WA for 37 years and rust took its toll. I don’t believe the vehicle is restorable but it’s a lot of fun to drive. It has a hard top with a cracked rear window that attaches but doesn’t seal properly due to rust damage. It also has a soft top that needs to be re-covered. Out on I-5 a while back and it got up 100 MPH in a hurry. I’m sure it’ll go faster but I won’t risk it.Near new tires, ood brakes, ses no oil and no cooling system leaks. The power steering unit leaks a bit. I love to drive it in the summer and will miss it!!
