This is my pride and joy. My first car. A 1979 450 SEL Mercedes. It is loaded with goodies, power windows, power steering, electric sunroof, 4 wheel disc brakes and an awesome 6.9L V8

Modification Listing
Exhaust System: $400

When i purchased the car, the front muffler had a whole blown out the size of a milk carton. Mr Plod didnt like this so i replaced it. Having the standard 2 muffler system, sounded boring so i pulled the rear one off, replacing it with 2 1&1/2 inch stainless steel pipes. Now it sounds like a blown 350...YEEHAA

Stereo System: $100

The original tape deck has been replaced with a Panasonic CD Player

Thats not just any 450!
thats a 6.9
the air dam on the front, and the mini wipers on the headlights were not found on normal 450 sels
the reason there is no decal on the trunk is because it was actually an option so drivers wouldn't attract attention. (i don't know why?)

You have more than just a beast, you have a legendary monster
