VIN:  wdb10704412054222

Odometer: ~92,000 miles

Title:  Clean Delaware Title Registered and insured as a driver in my name

Year: 1979

Model: 450sl (US)

Transmission: Automatic

Great Features: Nice clean cream interior, only ~92,000 miles, nice classic becker radio

Modifications: Not original wheels.  Wheels that came on the car were pitted polished bundts that were ruined by pitting.   

Recent Fixes: LOTS: brake, emergency brake, replaced exhaust manifold, replaced the fuel distributor and flowtested all injectors, embarked on patching rust holes, and all are now covered in fiberglass mesh and POR-15, and ready for filler and paint.  May install stainless wheel arches to cover the now painted rust bubble over the passenger rear wheel. 

Issues List: Rust, Soft top damaged, possibly an issue with he accumulator because pressure slowly drops to 25 psi, and then drops to zero instantly.  I think that is the diaphragm in the accumulator having failed. 

Picture of main project vehicle: Note: The grill has been replaced since the pictures have been taken.  This car is a driver that is enjoyable, but could use a little more love than I can give it.  It would be great for someone to store indoors and really take care of it.
