1979 Mercedes Benz 400-Series 6.9

1979 Mercedes Benz 6.9

This car has only 59,855 actual miles. Back in the day this was a “banker's hot-road”. There were approximately 1,800 of these sold in the US. It featured a massive 6.9 fuel injection gasoline engine and had fully hydraulic suspension that allowed the car to achieve an unbelievable ride, and it still does today. This Mercedes was originally the American version, but I converted it to European version with European hard-to-find bumpers, also with a front spoiler that goes on the bottom of the AMG spoiler. It's a very unique looking car and gets lots of attention. It's got great paint job, Prime Time Body Shop did the work a few months ago. I was going to keep it but decided to sell it since I'm selling all my collection, so it is your chance to own this low mileage car!

The vehicle comes with the original factory price sticker of $50,190.

Mechanical

This Mercedes always starts with ease and runs just fine. I had my mechanic go over the car, so everything works fine. Since I had bought it from a collector, it has always been well-kept. It produces massive power and 4-wheel power disc brake system is excelent. The previous owner replaced the rear leveling valve (front valve is in good condition), all five accumulator balls, and one hydraulic hose. The hydraulic system works great with leverage on the dash. It goes up and down, so however you want the car to sit, it does that way, you want it low - it sits low, you want it up - it sits up. The vacuum hoses have been replaced, no leaks. Exhaust is great. Central locking works just fine. AC blows ice-cold, all power windows work fine, sunroof works good. This engine is cool even in a 100 degrees weather, and runs strong, the radiator works fine. Also the steering box has been replaced by the previous owner, and it works great.

Exterior
This Mercedes is a laser straight car. The engine bay is very complete and clean. The car has never been in accidents and I have a clean title in hand. The car has always been garage-kept, in a rust-free condition. The paint looks great, original color, all glass is nice and the chrome is shiny.

Interior

The interior is full “tobacco brown” leather. It has a very minor hairline crack on the dash and one spot on the headliner on the driver's side, but nothing serious; overall it's just great! Leather is in fantastic condition for its age. It has the original brown sisal floor mats that are great. All gauges work as they should. A new windshield gasket has been installed. The headliner and door panels are in great shape.
