1973 Mercedes Benz 450 SLC Coupe * COLD A/C * Custom Wheels * RIDES & DRIVES!
This car belonged to my car collecting friend Joe. He keeps 10-15 cars all the time. He purchased this vehicle about 5 years ago with intentions of complete restoration. He has done some stuff to it, but the car keeps getting put on the back burner (other projects keep getting moved to the front of the line).
I will tell you everything I know. This is a "Grey Market" Mercedes. It was imported into the US. Joe replaced the odometer with one that read miles (not km). He had some Custom TSW Wheels made for the car (I guess it has a weird offset). We also still have the factory wheels with fresh tires. The exhaust was recently replaced with a Magna Flow Muffler (sounds burly). The custom black stripe makes the SLC look different from the rest on the road (easily removable if you don't like).
The car actually runs and drives pretty good. The A/C blows cold, although under acceleration I noticed that it gets warmer (maybe a vacuum line is loose?). Also reverse takes a second to engage if it is cold (but always works). We have 3 keys for the car. Whether you are looking for a driver, a project, or a collectors items; this is it.
