Up for consideration is my wife's1979 Mercede 450 SL. If you've grown up in the last 50 years, then you've seen hundreds of cars and car companies come and go..What makes the Mercedes SL of any year unique is that it's the type of car you aspire to own..some day"When I make it, I'm going to buy myself one of those!" was something I heard every time my wife saw one..It must have seemed like a long way away from the seat of the Chevette she was driving at the time..Years passed but the dream of that 450SL never fadedFinally, the time arrived and the hunt for one began. Two years.. 1977/78 models had a bad enginethe timing chains had issuesThe prices and condition, then as now are all over the placeSince only 250 miles have been put on the car in the 3 years she's owned it, the condition we bought it in is virtually the same as now. I purchased the car from a Palm Beach estate. The lady had only driven the car on her trips down during the winter. She had all the maintenance done on the car at the end of every season. In fact, just prior to my obtaining it, the entire front end's 30 year old rubber bushings had been replaced. The car tracks like an arrow stillsteering just as it should.. The silver paint couldn't look any newer.The brand new blue canvas top still hasn't seen weatherThe car starts right updrives like a Mercedes. The blue interior still looks good. The car only has 72,530 original miles. The chrome/glass is still greatThe AC worked for the first year or so, but the car hasn't been driven enough to warrant a re chargewhich is all it needsWhich brings me to why she's selling the carIt needs to be driven. It gets started and driven to the store periodically, but for the most part, it sits in the garage, like the statue it has started to becomeOnly obtaining a newer model enabled me to finally sell this one. Its a wonderfull, classic car in great conditiona car that still gets attention everytime its out.. The car is available for sale locally so if it sells, I reserve the right to end the auction. PLEASE DONT BID ON THE CAR UNLESS YOU HAVE THE MONEYGood luck bidding.
