Description for Mercedes-Benz S-Class 1979

1979 Mercedes 450se European Import with Desirable Small Bumpers & Euro Headlights
Introduction

"The second-generation S-Class was a technical masterpiece, and clearly in the running for the 'best car in the world', which manufacturers like to talk about. The range was logically split into six- and V8-cylinder cars, standard- and long-wheelbase - with a rather special model right at the top - once again.

The six-cylinder 280s were the entry-level models, although in the UK, we only received the 185bhp fuel injected SE model. This was still a relatively quick car, and one that possessed great handling, thanks to new semi-trailing arm rear suspension. The V8s were the stars of the range at launch. The 450SE won the European Car of the Year award, mainly on the strength of its excellent build quality and impressive number of safety features. Model numbers represent the 3.5 and 4.5-litre V8s, and there’s also a 450SEL with an extra six inches in the wheelbase, mostly for the benefit of rear seat passengers. "




This particular model was not available in the US market as they were grey market import. This classic silver star although it's not in concours condition, it's a great reliable daily driver and great for long drives. These particular body its known for its cars were built as a tank and car is beast with 4.5 liter 8 cylinder engine. Car is available to have it inspected prior to auction ending if you like. Please only bid if you are serious buyer and have the funds to purchase. I can help assist if the car needs to be transported within the states or overseas. Buyer is responsible for all shipping and transport charges. Once car is turned over to buyers shipping / transport company will immediately relieves the sellers from all liabilities insurance and and fees incurred.
The car has 180,577 original miles and still slowly climbing as I do drive it locally a few times a week . Once the auction has ended and payment has been made I will take pictures of the mileage and will be parked for the owner to take possession of the car.
The car is pretty solid and dependable and can be driven cross country with no worries. I am willing to drive the car personally down to you in a radius of 500-600 miles if you can compensate for my expenses which we can discuss later. The car has aged well as the seats do have wear and tear but the door panels are in excellent condition and body is straight as you can see in the pictures. The bumpers are nice shiny chrome all around has one small dent in the corner possibly backing the car into a something. The door panels are in great condition has all original chrome hardware.The lights and all gauges are working well wipers, automatic sunroof, etc. The is radio is equipped with a Sony cd player.The paint is good and there are paint bubbling in certain areas near the fender which are a common issue with these cars. The undercarriage surprisingly has no rust whatsoever. Please see pictures of the car undercarriage provided in my listing to assess for yourself. (As many which you come across has rust or rotted out).Due to improper jacking passenger rockers have rotted and rusted out which can be repaired as I have gotten a shop priced it $700 and are quite common with these cars. Please inspect pictures and I can answer any questions that you may have as I don't want to be dishonest and be upfront about the issues.The car is equipped withMichelin tires all around and drivessmoothly. Just this week, I had the wheels rotated and balanced. I will have the car oil changed before the car is handed over to you and I normally use Moly Oil and Bosch Oil Filters.
Please inspect pictures as they were taken at the time of the listing with a basic iphone and ask questions before placing your bid and please bid only if you have intentions to pay in full and take possession of the car. I am trying to sell it due long distance move. Car is being sold as is and will come with a Virginia State Title.
