Description for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1965

Replace your 230sl 250sl or 280sl damaged body with this donor chassis body from California
This can be re-stamped to match your VIN # for body replacement
Hey they do it all the time with rare vintage MERCEDES etc
just transfer all the good parts onto this chassis and
have a 280sl 250sl or 230sl
your choice !
MERCEDES 230sl - 1966 - body shell from LA California -
You get the rolling chassis with 2 bare doors
and the front and rear suspension
steering box and
wheels and tires shown
Very good body and chassis purchased from LA California years ago - Front fenders and nose panel were replaced at one time and finishing work never completed . Car was Silver - the red areas are spotting putty -
Solid frame - undamaged - front sheet metal in excellent condition - only issue is lower front bumper mount area - rear fenders very good
although I did find some filler in the wheel arches - Trunk floor is solid - with only some surface rust and red primer paint . Rear tail panel is
in very good condition - no issues no filler . All floors are in good condition except for the drivers front floor which has a hole in it .
This can be repaired with a left front replacement floor that we sell for $100 . As you can see this car was stripped down to reconstruct
and then the past owner gave up on it . I purchased this a few years back along with 3 other 230sl's - a 250sl and 4 280sl's . I have since sold off all of the car, ith the last 4 being sold in the last 6 months - 3 of them on ebay to very satisfied buyers SEE FEEDBACK.
I kept this 230sl rolling body for myself with the thought that I would finish it and keep it . But I have been selling off most of my MERCEDES and still have at least 4 others I intended to work on although as years have passed I realize that doing all the cars will never happen so out they go .
The car comes with the front and rear suspension and wheels and tires shown on it so it can be rolled easily .
ENGINE -TRANSMISSION - DRIVE SHAFT are still in the car but are not included and will be removed before shipping
Wheels are the later 280sl wheels - Tires are usable as is for transport .
This will save someone so big $$$$ on any restoration
Just the cost of the front FENDERS from MERCEDES will set you back $3800 - add a nose $500 and the labor to install them $1500
and will have $5800 spent on your project ! Then start adding up all the other panels and cost and before you know it you have $20,000
in you rusted crashed junk chassis !!!!! So why not save over $10,000 up front in time and energy -get a good chassis and save $$$
When you get the car you can them sell off your rear end and front suspension at a discount for at least $2000 - giving you a good chassis
frame - for less than $6000 !!!! Remember that is what it could cost you to replace the front fenders and nose panel on your own junk car !!
This is a great buy at this price for just the rolling chassis ! I had a 280sl rolling chassis last year that was no where near as good as this one
and I had an offer on ebay of $15,000 for it last year and turned it down ! As you may know the 230sl 250s and the 280sl are
increasing in value . I also specialize in the 190sl ( I have owned 170+ of them ! ) and have tons of parts left for them as well . I can truly say that the 230sl 250sl and 280sl are way better cars than the 190sl's and are next in line to increase even more than the 190sl's .
LISTING SAYS CLEAR TITLE - A title does not exist for this car and it is being sold with a bill of sale
However if the buyer wants we can get the proper papers ( REGISTRATION or TITLE ) for $400 - $500
if you need it . We can help with shipping anywhere in the WORLD as we have shipped cars all over .
Just this year we have shipped 1 280sl to Germany 1 280sl to Italy - 1 230sl and 280sl to Poland and then
a 230sl and 250sl to TEXAS !
