1973 Mercedes 450SLC Mercedillac Found in Hollywood

1973 Mercedes 450SLC Mercedillac

 

Spotted in Hollywood is a 1973 Mercedes 450SLC Mercedillac for $3,000 USD.  I have taken picture of this well known car in the Hollywood Hills before.  Someone went to alot of trouble to make this one off car.  According to the owner , it has been used in music videos, Playboy TV and is affectionately called the “Mercedillac.”  It runs… barely. The engine is essentially solid and a new fuel pump was just installed, but it needs work. As does the suspension and possibly drive shaft. The driver’s side door needs an exterior handle. The interior is, well, idiosyncratic. There is rust in the floorboards.  You can drive it away, but I wouldn’t go far.  So it’s a bit of a project, to be honest.  But the body is clean, and remarkable. Yes, those are the genuine fins of a genuine 1959 Cadillac. And yes, that is a genuine Mercedes Benz 450SL.

1993 Mercedes 500GE: Stainless Steel Brake Line Upgrade

Mercedes 500GE: Stainless Steel Brake Line Upgrade

 

I am in the process of planning my 1993 Mercedes 500GE restoration.  The 500GE has been a lot of fun to own and it is time to see what can be done to improve the braking system.  It has disc brakes up front but still has drum brakes in the rear.  I researched the idea of upgrading to disc brakes but it seems to be a very involved upgrade.   Unfortunately, I do not have access to mechanics with G Wagon expertise especially with this model that never officially came to the USA.   I have had the brakes flushed when I got the car just to establish a base line for my future maintenance work.   My  next task is to purchase stainless steel brake lines to see if that will help with pedal feel.   Its been brought to my attention that the correct brake line kit for the 500GE is the same as the G320 so I will start gathering the parts I need.  According to the diagram , the brake kit will include lines number 14 and number 35.  It is also recommended that I replace the differential hose which is another number 35 line.

1992 Mercedes 500E

 

Spotted in Pacific Heights , San Francisco is a 1992 Mercedes 500E for $14,999 USD.  The seller is getting an overwhelming response to this car.  The price is firm.  I am always skeptical when the seller says no time to let the buyer take it to a mechanic.  The price is under market for a 144,000 mile car.  This wont last long.  They seem to be holding steady in price if not increasing for good examples.
