For Sale: 1980 Mercedes-Benz 450SL in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

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 cabin.


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!!!
