1980 Mercedes-Benz 400-Series

Up for sale is my 1980 Mercedes Benz 450sl that was owned by the great NY Yankee baseball player Roger Maris, who broke Babe Ruth's record for home runs in 1961 and hit 61 homers for the season. I have the original contract he signed when he purchased the car(not a copy) and a verified signed baseball card(by beckett DNA) as authenticated. Included with sale.I purchased the car from his son in Gainesville Florida and he gave mea signed baseball card and original documentation. The car has always been a Florida car so no rust to mess with including the undercarriage. It was always garaged and sits in my garage out of the hot Florida sun.
All repairs were completed at Continental imports: On 4/13/16 a new servo(for heat and a/c) was replaced as well as a new master cylinder. Brakes were inspected andnew front calipers were replaced.(cost $1977)Also on 8/4/14 new spark plugs, oil change,new battery, new power steering pump, new gear box, and wheel alignment. (cost $3000)The current tires on the car are good but I would replace the front(rears have plenty of tread left. I have receipts for all repairs from Continental Imports where the Maris family had the car serviced. Has plenty of V8 power and the engines have been described as bullet proof. No engine leaks. No radiator leaks. All the options are in good working order, cold air conditioning, cruise control.
