1979 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class AMG

For sale is my 1979 450SL convertible with original AMG kit. Currently has 121,000 miles. White exterior with blue interior, ardi steering wheel and rare 3 piece wheels. Overall the car is in good shape but does need some TLC. It starts, tops, dles andaccelerates. I will describe the car in more detail below.
InteriorInterior is in good shape. Leather seats have no rips or burns and color is still nice. On the drivers seat some plastic trim pieces are missing. The wood trim is there but started to get refinished at some point. All wood pieces are there including ashtray. The dashboard is cracked in several places. The door panels are in perfect shape. Carpets are clean. Windows are all good with no cracks. Heat works great, C does not work.
ExteriorThe exterior has been recently been repainted a metallic white. It looks great but not perfect. You can see some minor imperfections but overall i'd say its nice, o rust or anything like that. No dings or scratches. The wheels and tires are in great shape. I put 4 brand new tires on it a few weeks ago. All lights, ipers, indows work great. It has a blue soft top. It is in good condition with no rips or tears from what I can remember.
Engine and suspensionThe engine seems to have a small misfire. When I start the car when its cold and press the gas it seems to choke a little. Once the engine heats up it runs pretty good. Still has a misfire but accerates good. The muffler in back seems to have a hole in it, t's not loud but louder than usual. It seems to have a short somewhere also, f i leave the battery on it won't have juice to crank in the morning, think its from the radio since it sometimes gets static over bumps but I have not had a chance to look at it.Shocks seem ok, rakes are good, ierods could use replacing.
Overall the car seems to be in good condition. I bought this car a while back to take on as a project but funds and space are limited at this point. With winter coming I ould hate to leave it outside in the snow. With a little work this car can be brought back to it's original beauty. Please email me with any questions that you might have.
