1973 Mercedes 450 SL - Classic Car Auto Inspection
- Jun. 13, 2012 - Test Drive Technologies Auto Inspection Services in St Louis, Missouri
was contracted by a classic car collector
from Delaware to inspect a very rare 1973 Mercedes 450 SL in St Louis, Missouri, that both the dealership & seller had thought was in near perfect condition. The vehicle was presented with low miles, great paint, excellent running condition & a fantastic interior with all options functioning. Upon a full classic car auto inspection by Test Drive Technologies it was soon discovered that the vehicle had an electrical issue keeping the power windows & turn signals from working as well as a 6 inch gouge in the spare tire well in the trunk floor that appeared to come from underneath the vehicle. Upon further inspection it was concluded that the damage was from a tow hook on the Mercedes being pulled on too hard by the shipping company. The dealership & buyer were both informed of the damages found and the vehicle price was then negotiated further.
