Description
 
Milan Brown Metallic ... Bamboo interior ... Hardtop ... Low miles ... Well maintained ... 2 owners ... Like new ...

One of the most distinctive convertibles of the 1970s and 1980s was Mercedes-Benz’s celebrated SL roadster. Testament to its popularity among the discerning was its long production run; it appeared virtually unchanged over an impressive 18 year span. Unlike its American contemporaries with their yearly trim shuffles and regular redesigns, the SL seemed to beg the question, “Why change, when you’ve gotten it right the first time?”

Sporty and elegant, this 2-owner 1979 Mercedes Benz 450 SL is finished in Milan Brown Metallic with a matching hard top and a Brown soft top. Benefiting from one professional repaint in its original color, this car’s finish is laser straight and lustrous. Lending further distinction to this car’s exterior is its brand new 16” chrome wheels. The original 14” wheels and tires, which are in good condition, will also be included with sale.

Finished in Bamboo, the original interior is elegant and refined. Genuine wood accents on the dashboard and center console lend an air of richness. The door panels, center console, seating areas, carpeting, and dash board are all in excellent condition—a testament to the level of care this car has received through the years. An updated AM/FM stereo with CD player will add to your driving pleasure.

Powered by a fuel injected 4.5 liter V-8 engine and three speed automatic transmission, this grand tourer has power and smoothness that contribute to a very satisfying driving experience. Best of all, this car’s powertrain has earned a reputation of being “bullet proof.” Having just 99,624 original miles, this car runs and drives as well as it looks.

This 450 SL benefits from the following recent maintenance:

• Stainless steel exhaust system
• New tires
• New plugs, wires, cap, & rotor
• New fuel & air filters
• New belts
• New battery
• Coolant flush

All power and convenience items work as they should, but it should be noted that the air conditioning is not currently blowing ice cold. In addition, minor imperfections in the finish do not detract from the overall appearance of this car.

In addition to its five original wheels, also included with sale are the original owner’s and maintenance manuals, first aid kit, and tool kit, all of which are in excellent condition.

With just two owners since new—the first until 2008—this is a car that has always been pampered. It has never been driven in winter and has always been properly stored indoors.

If an iconic roadster that has always received the best of care is what you desire, this 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450 SL is for you.
