    Mercedes 450SLC -> Summer Beater

    So not sure if any of you remember my thread a few months back where I was looking at a 190, and a few SEC's.

    Well... the 190 was sold and the SEC's looked good but were rotten underneath.

    Today I made a on condition purchase of a 450SLC... This one looks rotten... but is solid underneath, and only surface rust.

    No plans. Just tune it to run right, New tires, and grind the fuck out of the rust, prime, tape, and paint. (not to match either)

    Just a fun toy for the summer. Sell it in the fall. I'll post more pictures later.

    Jesus mike. You'll get a good shower when it rains with a rotted sunroof like that. Was it $500?

    $750 - On condition that the tires hold air, and that he will charge the battery/ install a new one, and prove that she runs and drives as he stated.
