Question AC only blowing out/2 vents in 1979 450SL

Hello Everyone:
It's me again, I've read the posts about Enrique at Mr MB Motors and hopefully I will have an opportunity to take the prospect car for his one-over before I buy the car this week. I was hoping someone might be able to let me know if this is a major issue with the car as far as the a/c only blowing out of the two vents closest to the windows on either side of the car. The two middle vents in the 450SL that I'm looking at for some reason don't blow out any air...and I was wondering if this is something serious $$$. Please let me know if you have any knowledge in this area. Other than that there are only some cosmetic things that need to be fixed with the car, i.e., no rear-view mirror. Again I appreciate any responses and thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Please read center vents not working on 560SL

Thumbs up center vents

Lynn:
Thanks so much for the different threads posted to your response. I was wondering if this was going to be a costly endeavor to fix and now I have a better idea. I will have Enrique have a look and let me know how much it will cost to get everything up to snuff on the car and make a decision based on that. Again, much thanks!

Rob
