Project Name: Purple 1979 450sl Euro

Online Thread for the main vehicle:

Number of Cars Included: 2 running cars: (1) 1979 450sl (purple, originally brown), (2) 1973 450sl (brown), (3) 380sl for gas tank, and maybe wheels

Asking Price December 2020: $5000


Title: Currently signed over to a friend in North Carolina.  So it would require that I pay him to get a clean title in his name.  I could have him provide a bill of sale if that’s all that is desired.

Year: 1979

Model: 450sl (euro) – Includes:

-        the ~220 HP Euro motor

-        anti-squat rear end

-        Euro bumpers

-        An additional steel replacement hood for the rotted purple hood (saves the buyer from needing to part out the 1973 450sl)

Transmission: Automatic

Modifications: Color change, and potential chassis swap with rot free donor cars

Recent Fixes: Got the car running and cleared the fuel system after years of sitting.  About to install the gas tank from the 380sl next, at which point it will be running and driving on its own.

Issues List: Rust. Will need soft top, possibly one taken from one of the donor cars included
