Classic Car Overview

1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SL Convertible 8-cyl. 4520cc/180hp Bosch FI 2 door roadster 134,196 Miles (odometer not accurate) Cream with tan leather Black hard top/dark brown soft top Vehicle Story: I purchased this 78 Mercedes convertible at the 2021 Mecum auction in Chattanooga, TN. Since then, it has been garage kept and driven lightly. I have taken it on two road trips - the first a 2 hour drive, the second a 5 hour drive. I have never had any issues out of this vehicle. It has not broken down, stalled, etc. Admittedly, I am not very knowledgeable about classic cars, as this is my first. That being said Ill be as transparent as I can about whats good and whats bad. Since it was purchased at an auction, I didnt have the opportunity to question the seller about its history. If youre interested, I encourage you to do your due diligence inspecting the vehicle before you buy. WHATS GOOD It runs great and drives like a sports car - lots of power! The exterior is in good shape - a few minor scuffs only noticeable close up. Black hard top in good shape. Dark brown soft top is in excellent shape - it almost looks new (and it may be). Interior is in good shape, there are a few places where the leather is worn but not ripped. Power windows work. I believe this vehicle to be in original condition with exception of after market stereo. All original manuals are present. WHATS BAD The odometer is not accurate. When I purchased the vehicle the odometer read 134,196 and it has never moved. Granted, Ive probably only put 1,500 miles on it since I purchased it but I dont know when it stopped working. The air conditioner does not work, nor have I attempted to fix it. There is a draw on the battery that I do not know the source of. My father installed a quick connect/disconnect lever to the battery, so if I know the vehicle is going to sit for awhile I just disconnect the battery so it doesnt drain completely. Stereo needs new antenna.
