Description:

1985 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

Picked this up off an older fellow that could no longer get in and out of the vehicle easily. The vehicle was claimed to have sat without running for over 1 year. This Mercedes is in good restorable condition with very little rust (few very small spots on the floors, surface rust above the gas door) The car will need a full repaint as most panels have clear coat fade, including the factory hard top. The biggest problem with this vehicle is that the engine is NOT running currently due to multiple large/small vacuum leaks. Because of how the fuel system is designed in this vehicle it requires good vacuum. The fuel tank has been cleaned of all rust, fuel strainer replaced, filter replaced, pump replaced, fuel distributor rebuilt(properly), warm up regulator rebuilt (properly), fuel injectors replaced, rotor button/cap replaced, new plugs, and new wires as well. I've sank a pretty penny in to getting this vehicle running but sadly don't have the time to finish it with my new work schedule.
One last thing to add before people ask, the soft top is IMMACULATE! I'd dare to say the previous owners ever used it. And the mileage is unknown I'm just going off what I was told and evidence on the carfax (which is clean)
