Here is an absolutely stunning Mercedes 450 SL in great condition inside and out. The car was bought by original owner Bernice Woolard at Loeber Motors on 10/6/78. At some point the vehicle made it out to Arizona when Ms. Wollard retired and was traded into Mercedes of Tucson last year where its most recent owner bought it for over $20k! It is rare to find these SL's with this kind of low mileage because once you drive this car you won't want to get out. Here is your chance to own the Mercedes flagship for a fraction of its original sticker cost.

The list of some of the equipment:
-4.5L V8 Engine
-Automatic Transmission
-Power Windows
-Power Door Locks
-Brown Original Soft Top
-Removable Hard Top
-Original Becker Mexico
-Ice Cold A/C
-Beautiful Original Palomino Interior
-Beautiful Upgraded 15" Chrome Wheels w/ New Tires

The body on the car is in very good condition and was extremely well maintained. The paint on the car appears to be mostly original in its factory color of Signal Yellow and is in very nice condition and looks almost as good as the day in rolled of the lot. The car has been completely inspected underneath from front to back and is very solid. The car is riding on gorgeous BRAND NEW 15” Chrome 560SL wheels and Brand New Falken performance radials. The original 14" Bundt alloy wheels will come with the car. All chrome trim, glass, and rubber seals are in great shape. The brown soft top is original, and has only one small rip which is pictured between the back plastic windows. The hard top has good seals and the headliner is in awesome shape.

The interior is in great shape all around. The Leather seats are all in very good condition and look absolutely as good as the day it was new which shows the quality of material used in this car. The dash is crack free and the door panels and console are in great shape. The carpets are all very nice and have been professionally cleaned. All dials and controls function as they should; power windows and antenna also are fully functional. The sound system is also very nice with the original Becker Mexico still in place. The interior is topped off by a brand new set of Oem Mercedes floor mats. The trunk is clean and complete with correct mat, original jack. original tools, and spare tire.

Mechanically, this SL runs GREAT! The car starts right up and shifts smooth as silk. The V8 engine is surprisingly quick and responsive. Many Mercedes experts and mechanics stand behind the 4.5L as the best engine Mercedes ever made. It is reliable, easy to fix, and parts are readily available. The suspension is very tight and feels solid even at autobahn speeds above 90mph. The most recent owner purchased this from the Mercedes dealer so you know it was fully reconditioned prior to sale. I also had it into my local Mercedes independent and he checked it over and gave it the big thumbs up!

All in all, this is one very clean SL and has been professionally maintained and truly loved by its previous owners. This Mercedes is a fantastic car for the price and includes every option offered in this car. This is your chance to get an almost new 450sl convertible for a fraction of the original cost and super well maintained. Any further questions please call Jon at 480-703-2337. The car is located in Sunny Scottsdale, AZ!
