1970 Mercedes 300 SEL 3.5 V8 109model LWB
I regrettably have my Aus Delivered 300 SEL 109 for sale, I was storing this long wheelbase fully optioned beauty long term but I just dont have the space in our garage for it for the next few years. The motor was running after I had the heads rebuilt with all new genuine MB parts, but not very well. The MBenz mechanc said that it had one piston with lower than normal compression and blue smoke indicating a definate bottom end ring kit needed. One of the injectors were stuck open as well. I just dont have any more time left to continue this project due to business commitments but anyone who is handy with cars can have fun and profit at the sametime. Car has had new heads with all new valves & internals, new ECU, new points, cap, rotor, waterpump, gaskets, seals, hoses, belts, map sensor, battery, the list goes on. Allparts were from MB.USA and genuine, not ebay, receipts over $12k can be shown. Engine bay is spotless with everything either stripped and soda blasted or scrubbed clean.
The interior is the desirable "tan" leather, the drivers seat is ripped but apart from that everything is in great condition and very very clean, door timber has been redone with 8 coats of varnish, original radio works perfectly as do all of the other options like the 4sp gearbox, power windows, air con, air suspension, clock, blinkers, lights, indicators, heated rear windscreen (very very rare) & the odometer is in Km/h not MPH.
These V8 versions are climbing in price every single year. Not to mention head turners, irreplacable, all steel and super cool being on air ride from factory 50 years ago ;-). If you buy this car and just hold it you will make money every single year but for me sadly it has to go for now and even though all it would take is for me to hang in there and do the ring kit and I could retest the market at over double this price but it just has to go.. Comes with a full set of spare mag wheels and tyres. Lots and lots of rare spare parts also available as well if you are interested. Colour is the rare horizon blue 304G.
All you have to do is replace the rings and you will have a great car, I have done 90% of the work already. Nothing has been modified, it has all been kept original. Some rust in the back left door and very minor surface rust in the bottom of the other door which has all been rust treated. The rest of the car, boot, tyre well does not have any rust anywhere.. It has never been in an accident. First in best dressed, I will not hold it for anyone until I have a deposit.
Thanks for reading, Cheers :-)
