Well, I'm coming in a bit late - that 450SE is a splendid car, and I have seen it at the Club's concourse(s) several times - I think. A very splendid example. Regards Styria

Ah, the GTi6 will never go. It's been too much of a journey to get to this point. There is too much skin in the game now to hand it over to someone else.
Regards,
Brian

This 450SEL is interesting. Clearly a UK import but I like the spec with red and velour interior. Would be high compression engine too.

Looking closely, the car has a surprise: It was never fitted with A/C from new.
Obvioulsy many lower spec cars in the UK were not fitted with A/C, like 280s and 350s, but I have never seen the almost range topper 450SEL with no A/C, especially such a late one:

Nice looking car Bryce.
I think this has been advertised before.

Id offer $4k to begin with.
Probably get it for $5k.

A lot of car for the $$$$

Good morning Patrick - From the photos this car could well be a good buy. Over to you Patrick. I know you have the storage space available.
Regards,
Brian

If I had not just bought the 560 I would be interested. And I need to sell my 300.
Would want to fit A/C though. Maybe a vintage air unit with factory controls which would deliver more cooling than the original 116 unit.

Brian,
Will need to shift the Corona or the Audi first mate.

The 450 is a very nice car though.

Bryce,
The 72 Statesman I had was without air conditioning and to be honest, it was a massive bonus.

Made the car so much more original.

It's a deal. I can fix this for you.
I'll give you $500 for the Audi and the rest is history. Yes?
Regards,
Brian

This seems a really nice car, and is exceptionally cheap.

Would be good to give this the once over.
