Additional Info

I have owned this excellent car for nearly five years,
but now with age ever creeping over my body it is time for it to go (the car,
rather than the body, I hope).  In that
period I have regularly driven it yet have covered less than 5,000 Km.  The body work is good and the lustrous green
paint work near damage free.  Bright work
is excellent.  The interior is good and
generally unmarked.  Electric windows all
work as does the sunroof.  The clock
sometimes works, by generally doesn’t. 
Air conditioning is excellent, heating requires a little trick to
function properly but almost never used. Tyres are good, see pic.  Oil pressure is excellent – almost invariably
hard against the stop, engine temperature generally settles at about 175
F.  Brakes are good as are the power steering
and the auto-gearbox.  The mechanism for
the headlamp wipers is all in position, but I have never tried to make them
work. The engine is smooth and powerful rendering the car very fast with
acceleration to match. Obviously in a car of this age there are some down
sides.  There are traces of rust at one
lower corner of the rear windscreen – a known trouble spot for this model. I
have twice rectified them – mainly surface corrosion – and find that my efforts
last about two years before a little bubbling re-emerges. However, the other
450slc corrosion trouble area is the boot floor - and here my car is trouble
free, see pics.

When the car is started from cold a faint exhaust leak
can be heard, sounding a little like a tappet. This noise disappears when the
engine reaches working temperature although becomes quietly apparent when the
engine accelerates under load.   Two
independent technicians have confirmed that the sound is exhaust based, coming
from the right-hand cylinder bank but exactly locating it without stripping
accessories out of the engine bay doesn’t seem possible. I have lived with this
intermittent annoyance for three years and have not judge it worth the trouble
to explore its source anymore.  The starting
price for this car reflects this so-far unrectified annoyance and a cracked headlamp
glass.  The car will come with its
handbook, Haynes manual and full workshop manual on CD.
