I'm getting a lot of questions on specifics, so I thought I'd add this: When I was buying the beauty I searched all over the U.S. to find the best SL I can find. I wasn't looking for the best deal, I was looking for a Mercedes that was clean inside and out, had low miles, well-maintained and drove flawlessly. I searched through dozens of these perhaps until I stumbled on this one and fell in love. I bought it from a gentleman in Chicago who just moved from SC where this 450SL was originally purchased and spent most of its life in. The transmission was already rebuilt (well documented) and a SERVO system installed/converted. The thing that immediately got me interested in the original sale was the flawless interior. The color, the condition, I mean it looks like it just drove out of the factory. I'm no mechanic, but a friend of mine is who pointed out the fuel pump, exhaust leak, power-steering pump leak and some other small things. ALL THESE THINGS WERE REPAIRED BY A LOCAL SHOP UPON MY PURCHASE! I was buying this car for myself and went all out on it making sure it's perfect. Hopefully this sheds some more light into this beauty. If you want to check it out, test drive it or have any other questions - call or text me at 413-813-8877. The car is still registered and driven by me. Always garaged.
