It looks in nice shape although I am always very suspicious of white LWB S classes as that is hire car config.

1979 450SEL 6.9 for sale at Dutton Garage.

114,060kms no mention of the price!

I have to say I have never seen a 6.9 with the suspension sitting so high up is that how the suspension should be?

The dutton garage makes classic throttle look like the $2 shop. Be prepared to be sitting down if/when you ring for the price

Does anyone know the location of the Dutton Garage ? I must admit to never heard of it. Also, anyone know the price ? It must be "sky high" given the comment by C107.

The car itself ? Well, the price may well determine if the car is good value. Judging by the poor quality photos, there are certain areas that could be spruced up. The first is the usual problem of front door trims with the foam having disappeared although, for a change, the back seat appears to be firm and unmarked. A definite bonus. The radio is not original, but that's probably not an important issue. I am more concerned with the very dull, and dated, appearance of the timber trim AND steering wheel, and the Ashtray sports the Zebrano finish instead of the more appropriate burr walnut. Just nit picking a bit, but then again this is supposed to be in super duper condition.

Regarding the ride height, you can go close to that level on the high setting, but then again it may just be a matter of finer adjustment of the levelling valves. Regards Styria

And have been a part of the Melbourne motoring scene for several generations. As to the price: no comment is possible until someone knows what it is.

My Brother is selling his 280CE. I used to own this car and I think he is asking a reasonable price for it. It recently had a rebuilt steering box put in, and when I had it I did the water pump and other misc stuff. Its a bit rough but could be nicer with a bit of work. I think it needs some brake work for rego. He's just bought a much newer BMW.

That is a reasonable price provided it’s not too rusty.

This is a very nice 450SE(L) - even the leather (MB Tex ?) looks in lovely condition. There could be more photos. Regards Styria

I think this is the wrong URL, points to an old TK thread about 6.9 suspension.
