For Sale: 1975 Mercedes-Benz 450SL in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Long-term care and great features - like cold-blowing A/C - make this 1975 Mercedes-Benz 450SL the V8-powered drop-top luxury classic that has everything you want... including an affordable price.

This car is coming off of 16 years of long-term ownership, and in fact, careful ownership is believed to be part of its whole life. The consignor purchased this from a friend, and they both gave it garage-kept care. The low odometer is even believed to represent the full actual mileage. It makes for a particularly attractive exterior where the light Aqua Blue has the terrific shine of quality. And this shows all the right signs of being the factory application! It does a terrific job of showing off the crisp lines that make the R107 series SL an enduring icon of premium style. And the iconic color-matched wheel covers remind you that this is part of a line of great classic Mercedes-Benzs. Capping off this premium appearance is an attractive dark blue folding roof, and there's also a color-matched hardtop whenever you want a coupe-like profile.

While having two roof options makes this car ideal, we all know these SLs are best when topless. So if you like the way the dark blue soft top looks against the light blue exterior, then you'll love the full dark blue interior. There's a freshness to the seats so that they are both attractive and comfortable. But overall, you can tell this is just a true vintage presentation, right down to the fundamentals like the working courtesy lights to the crisp VDO gauges. It's made to be a great luxury cruiser, and that's why you have features like power windows, cruise control, and updated speakers that are just waiting for you to choose a modern stereo. And the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant so it's fun to drive with the top down even in the summertime.

The engine bay has the correct and robust 4.5-liter SOHC V8 with Bosch fuel injection. It shows a history of proper care, including fundamentals, like the brake lines, fuel pump, and steering components. And the proof of watchfulness is in the way this one still eagerly fires up and runs. This generation SL was terrific at being the ideal balance of comfort and sport. It includes power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel power disc brakes for the best all-around control.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records. A great Benz is all about finding one where the previous owners have cared about the car in the same way you would. That's why you know this one is an irresistible find. Call now!
