Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1980 Mercedes-Benz 450SL
Roadster. Finished in Petrol Blue Green Metallic over bamboo
leather interior, this is a two-owner car with 57,000 documented
original miles and complete service records to new. It's easily one
of the best-kept examples of a 107 we have seen in recent memory.
Very nice paint and body. Both tops in excellent condition.
Excellent original underside with no known rust in the floors,
rockers or battery box.
Interior presents beautifully with a crack-free dash and wood.
Steering wheel, door panels, carpets, headliner and seat upholstery
are all in very well-preserved original condition. Original and
working Becker Mexico cassette stereo. All automatic climate
control functions work (A/C is ice cold and blows through the
center vents). All gauges are clear and working, from the clock to
the original 85-mph speedometer.
This Mercedes has been impeccably maintained throughout its life,
with a stack of mostly dealer service records dating to new. Recent
service over the last decade includes a power steering gearbox
reseal, shifter bushings, automatic heater valve replacement, brake
job with new master cylinder and new hoses, new thermostat, new a/c
compressor, new climate control vacuum actuator, steering coupler,
full tune-up and more. This car got new engine mounts and subframe
bushings (plus a complete steering linkage rebuild) about 15 years
and 15,000 miles ago. Plus, of course, regular lube, oil, filter
service, belts, hoses, tires, and other normal wear items over the
All owner's books, jack, spare (with new matching tire), tools,
both top handles, hard top stand and hoist, Becker demo cassette
and 40 years of service history are included with the sale. This
one checks all of the right boxes for the discerning R107
enthusiast - a well-maintained, low-mileage original and unmolested
example in great colors. For more information about this 1980
