Title: Clean Delaware Title Registered and insured as a driver in my name
Model: 450sl (US)
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.
