1974 Mercedes-Benz 400-SeriesWhat an amazing opportunity to own a 1974 Mercedes 450 SE with NO RESERVE!!
This car needs some work. I have been using this car as a weekend car to bring to the marina where I keep my boat for the last 5 years up to a couple weeks ago. It starts and runs for 6 minutes then stalls. Will not start back up for about 12 minutes and repeats. As soon as the engine temp hits 160 she shuts off. There is the is a dent above the fuel tank door the size of a quarter. The odometer has stopped turning and says around 133k. Also the clock does not work. I had the arm rest leather all redone and I broke the zipper trying to slip it back on. Everything else works including AC, Cruise control, power windows, and power antenna.
The car is currently also being listed at a luxury auto import place for 10,500, that is what they valued it at. I have informed them that I may sell it on Ebay instead of paying them a tremendous amount of commission and they agreed.
It has well over 25k invested in it over last 5 years. Car had an amazing paint job done about 4 years back. All seats we redone and repacked with fresh horse hair and new springs. Stainless steel pipes from headers back are all new. Rims were redone and professionally painted with an Austin Martin paint. Whole upper end of engine was redone 5 years ago and almost everything else new right after. Electronic ignition just replaced as well as wires and fuel injection seals 6 months ago. Michelin tires less than 1 year old. Battery, voltage regulator, fuel filter and fuel tank filter done last month. Coil, fuel pump, and wires 6 months old. Transmission flushed 13 months ago and shifts perfect. Nearly all suspension parts have been replaced. I also had the unattractive american style bumpers taken off and European version installed in place. Was very expensive but much classier looking.
I would not of hesitated to take this car anywhere up till she started acting up a couple weeks ago. Car is very fast and tight. I have decided to move on from her. I am funding a cyrpto currency project so all vintage watches and antique cars must go. These cars are great investments and only going up in value. People always comment about her. Last week one sold at New York auction for 18k. I am giving the car away at this price. Serious inquires only.
