Distinguished style, both tops, a loaded A/C interior, and a
history of quality investments - this 1980 Mercedes-Benz 450SL is a
standout premium classic, and so it's amazing that all of this is
available for such an affordable price.
Astral Silver Metallic is the factory-correct color, and this Benz
wears it like formalwear. It was given a respray later in life to
make sure it remains a good gloss and a keen sparkle that will make
you want to take this convertible out on every sunny day. And even
when the weather isn't cooperating, there is a color-matched
hardtop to keep this one looking upper-class. The soft top even has
style. Not only is the black folding roof a great complementing
color to the silver, but it also goes with the bumper guards and
side trim for a coordinated appearance. And it's all presented on a
proper Mercedes with crisp lines, well-fitting panels, and a sturdy
but premium overall presence.
The full black interior continues this car's harmonized color
theme. We have a receipt showing a nice investment to have the
front buckets reupholstered in supple leather in 2019. So they have
the look and feel you want in a premium Benz all-day driver. The
rear seats are a fun addition that always gets attention from
Mercedes fans because the company never officially offered the
setup in the USA. It's a truly comfortable cruiser with the best
features, like power windows, power locks, nice wood trim, an
AM/FM/cassette stereo, cruise control, and cold-blowing air
conditioning. This is built for an ideal grand touring experience,
and so you'll love grabbing the grippy steering wheel and seeing
the full VDO gauge package dance as the breeze fills the open-top
A great cruising Mercedes has proper V8 power, and the 4.5-liter
motor was one of the largest they produced in this era. It was
built for driving on the autobahn, and so it's a fuel-injected
overhead cam setup. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission
and fully independent suspension are paired to deliver the ultimate
grand touring machine. We have thousands $$$$ in receipts
documenting a solid investment over the last few years in the motor
and suspension to keep this a strong luxury driver. It even
includes newer shocks, overhauling the power steering, and newer
components for the four-wheel power disc brakes.
Premium and distinct luxury classics are rarely this affordable. So
don't miss your chance at this drop-top Mercedes. Call today!!!
