1975 Mercedes 450 SEL
For sale is a 1975 Mercedes 450 SEL. I bought this in 1984 with 58,000 miles recorded. I have the sales invoice and an MOT certificate dated 20/12/82 showing a mileage of 48,263. The most recent MOT certificate is dated 08/04/94 with mileage 68,561.
The present mileage is 69,043. Essentially it has been off the road and stored in garages since some time 1995. I stored it rather than scrap it because it had a personal number plate (33DUF).
With the recent change in regulations I registered it as a historic vehicle and put the number onto a retention certificate and I now want to release some space in my garage.
Mechanically I think that it is not too bad. The engine idles reasonably well and the car moves when put into gear. Petrol dribbles out of the back & the water pump leaks slightly. The brakes don't do much! I have tried a few of the bits like the lights, indicators, windows etc and most seem to operate (some very slowly!).
The body is not too good, however I do recall having the sills replaced and the metal at the back near the rear bumper is crumbling. The paint is awful. The interior is a bit smelly but otherwise not too bad.
Car located in Selsey.
