Cool 6.9 Wanted!

I am looking to buy a 450 SEL 6.9 in the near future. I am seeking somewhat of a "project" which I could restore exactly how I want it. Ideally, something with a solid drivetrain that is not a rust-bucket would be great. If anyone knows where something like this could be found, let me know. I would like to keep the initial purchase price under $4000. Thanks-

Just for fun I looked to see what was available last night. Found about 2 dozen. All price ranges. Look on autrader.com and cars.com. Just remember to select 1982 and older on cars.com and the collector car page on autotrader.com. Wish I was gonna be out west soon. There were some nice ones for under $4k.

6.9 SEL

I spotted one in the driveway of a local auto mach. shop with a for sale sign on the window. Just driving by, the body looks good, paint is faded, but it is sitting evenly, so perhaps their are no suspension problems. Phone # is 650 369-7200. Location is in Redwood City CA.(SF bay area). E- mail me if I can be of any further assistance, and let us know when you find yours.

Richie,

Is that your SL in the driveway?

The 6.9 looks good! Did you check out the videos of our cars at Island Dragway?

I saw a dark blue 6.9 here in South Salem, Oregon. I don't know the price, but I drive by it frequently and could get some info if needed. Its a super nice looking car, with Euro headlights and chrome Bundt Cake rims.

AGREED! Spend $6K-$8K now and save yourself much angst and coin. A tremndous car to pilot. A terror to mess with.

6.9 found

This weekend I picked up a '78 6.9 euro model. 139k miles, faded paint, okay int, solid engine with a rebuilt trans. Also an original AMG body kit (rare?) all for just over $5k. I drove it back from SoCal with no problems (or speeding tickets). Boy are these fast! I'll post some pics soon. Thanks for the advice/help!
