The current owners of this 1975 Mercedes 450sl have owned it since
July 2019. Their plan was to fix the imperfections in the paint and
enjoy the car for a while and then eventually do what is happening
right now. Long story short they couldn't get the paint correction
to look right and with both of them being full time college
students, they just don't have the time, money, or knowledge of
fixing the paint themselves. The reason for the paint chips along
both sides of the car is the previous owner was an older gentleman
that would park his other car next to this car and open the door
hitting the beautiful Cayenne Orange doors. They have put about 800
miles on it in 6 months and it has been 100% reliable. The
transmission shifts perfectly smooth with no slipping. This car
even has the original owner's manual and the Mercedes Benz tool kit
in the trunk. They have the maintenance records going back to the
late 90s, a pretty thick folder's worth. Recent maintenance
includes an oil change, brake flush, and a tie rod end link. It
does have a small oil leak, it will need a half quart in about
every month. The tires in the rear still have plenty of tread, but
they do look a little old. The blower motor works and heat works,
but the air conditioning could use a recharge. The other
maintenance item that it could use is an alignment but it isn't
bad. The Good: It has 72,XXX miles, the interior is in great
condition, maintenance records are in tact, recent maintenance has
been done, and it has the Mercedes tool kit and jack. What it
Needs: Paint correction, an alignment, oil leak fixed, new tires in
the rear, speakers/radio, and an air conditioning recharge. Please
