1979 MERCEDES 450SL CONVERTIBLE, BEAUTIFUL ARIZONA CAR.
Convertible and Hard Top. The hard top needs to be painted if it going to be used.
The previous, older owner had the Mercedes serviced and gone through to the tune of $30.000 before giving it to his daughter before he passed away.
She never drove the car but she kept it in her garage for over 10 years as a memory of her dad.
After over 10 years of storage the next door neighbor managed to buy the Mercedes from her and they pushed it to his garage.
He took it to a Mercedes shop expecting to spend $3000-$5000 to get it up and running again but they rebuilt the engine, transmission, rebuilt the fuel injection system etc. They even installed a new convertible top. He also spend around $30.000 all in all before the Mercedes was ready to be picked up!
He has driven the 450SL around 20.000 miles since then and it runs excellent. The car is of course rust free and in very nice condition.
The A/C blows cold, the power windows work fine, the power antenna even work fine.
The body is excellent, interior is very nice and the conv top is new.
This 1979 450 SL is nicer and better than most that are available and it is the right color, red with an orange/brown leather interior.
