1980 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

This beautiful 1980 Mercedes Benz 450 SL is Thunder Yellow with a Tan MB Tex interior. It is powered by an all aluminum 4.5L DOHC fuel injected gasoline engine. It features a detachable hardtop roof. I am also includingthe very handy roof hoist contraption, which enables one person to lift the roof off the car for top down cruising.
I am selling due to duplication - I am nearly completed with restoration of another convertible. Out of garage space and play money !
Recent repairs/replacements include new tires, timing chain, fuel injectors, spark plugs, flushing of brake and fuel systems, new fluids, alignment, and new front and rear suspension bushings, steering coupler. The starts, runs and drives, but needs some fine tuning - runs rich.
What works: All electrical items with exception of radio and power antenna. Brakes, steering, tranny are all good. Interior in very good condition, with small crack in center of dash (dash caps are available for $99 if this bothers you). Body is very solid with a few quarter sized. areas of surface rust - one where roof joins car, one at outer rocker. Paint is good condition.
What does not work: AC, radio, antenna, odo/speedo not hooked up. Fuel gauge looks suspect.
What it needs:
1. Engine runs rich, needs fuel injection tuning, possibly rebuild on fuel distributor.
2. Fabric top needs to be replaced.
3. Investigate and fix radio / antenna issue
4. New soft top and fuzzy dice.
