A Mercedes 450sel 6.9 for $1795?

by

This is probably the best deal of the month if the price is actual. Original paint, light rust on fenders and leaky radiator with 143,000 miles.

I’ve always wanted a black 6.9 but considering the era in which it was built, Tobacco brown with Palamino leather fits the car. I bet it still smells like the previous owners Old Spice too.

This is the second super saloon from Mercedes after the legendary 6.3 300sel. The 6.9 cost $42,000 in 1977. Yeah that’s more than a Rolls Phantom of the time.

Typical v8 muscle: 286hp and 405tq @ 10mpg. 0 to 60 in 7.3 seconds.

I’d change the wheels back to Bundt cakes and pray the hydropneumatic system doesn’t burst. Like anything that sounds too good to be true… it probably isn’t.
