My dad just met a guy at the MErcedes classics for charity show at the berverly hills dealer. Who restored a 1974 450SL which had 25k on the odo to brand new condition.

He spent apparently over $100,000 to do the restoration, stripping the car down to the bare frame and re-powdercoating everything to factory specs, including replacing most every part on the car, including interior, switches, wood, you name it.

He even ahd the engine rebuilt even though it only had 25k on the odo.

To me that was a bit excessive on a low mileage car.
