Project Name:1982 500sec (euro)

Quick Description: A great car for an SEC lover.The SEC hasnít ever drawn me in.Iím more of a w108, r/c107, and w126 sedan fan.This car could be a great purchase, especially for someone who wants to do body work.The Rust is not so bad since so little of it is in bad spots.Rockers, undercarriage, and rear wheel wells are where it needs work.The interior is really in great shape, but the car is losing clearcoat rapidly, apparently a bad two stage paint job was done at some point in its life.
