possible 450slc / 5.0. for sale in los angeles

no affiliation

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/cto/1828780391.html

i have his phone#, but more importantly i have the vin, which will tell us something, if only some can decode it?

wdb1070261200925

happy to be an intermediary - i know these are very rare, and that there are a lot of hustlers out there trying to pass off some fakes.

p.s. cylinder #8, per the owner, has a spark plug loose inside, which, well, say no more, but he claims it has not been turned over since the "mechanic" dropped it inside - something about stripped out threads? anyway. thats all.

if the vin is real so is it

500SLC Rally Coup 1980-1981 V8 years made produced

107-026 chassis 1980-1981 2,769

(Created as Rally Version, initially labeled 450SLC-5.0 until 1979, then 500SLC)

from http://northernresource.com/mercedes/107.htm
right at the bottom of the page

however they were only made in 1980 and 81 - not 79 so be careful in 79 they were the 450slc 5

I talked to the guy, a VIN ending in 925 is clearly a 79.

Tonk, my fellow Vich, I am seriously considering driving down from SF to check out the car. However, I don't know the area at all. Do you know a good Benz shop to bring it in for an inspection? I'm OK with having the engine rebuilt, but if its completely utterly gone, not so sure.

well he is in agua dulce, which is up past magic mountain, off the 14. i'm a little dense tonight, so clue me in, please. is it a scam?

anyway, mr. mb in tarzana is highly regarded here, even though i've never used him - my guy, ned at independent motors in tarzana, retired - but the towing is going to cost you - 30 miles? -and i think the engine is worse than he lets on. anyway, alibassi had several, and warmed me up to the beauty/power of these through his various posts, and i just thought i'd put it out there.

(again, i have no affiliation. and no money otherwise i'd be interested. )
