This 1980 Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC is the classic Mercedes SL premium
look in a rarer classic coupe body. And this one is loaded with the
right features to be a great cruiser like power windows, air
conditioning, four-wheel disc brakes, and fuel-injected V8
A dark color like this blue always looks sophisticated on a
European classic. It has a good shine, but nothing ever gets too
fancy to keep you from enjoying this hardtop. After all, a grand
touring classic like this deserves out on the road. In general,
we're big fans of the SLC. It has the same look as the R107
Mercedes SL convertible that defined premium motoring for an entire
era. But because it was in production for half the time, you get
added rarity with the distinctive coupe body. And this one has nice
details, like the gold pinstriping and later style 15-inch Mercedes
The silvery-gray interior is a nice complementary color to the dark
blue exterior. It looks highly original inside, but there's a
comfortable overall style to this leather upholstery. These SLCs
are unique in that they offer the back seat that you don't get in
the SL. But no matter how many people are along for the ride, the
driver is always going to be the priority. This was built for
keeping you comfortable behind the wheel, and so you have features
like cruise control, power locks, the classic grippy steering
wheel, and a full set of VDO gauges. The power windows mean you can
show off the hardtop profile without leaving the driver's seat, and
the air conditioning can help make those breezes nice and cold.
There's even an upgraded AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth and a USB
input to power your phone.
The 450 SLC carried one of Mercedes-Benz's largest engines during
its era, and so when you pop the hood, the engine bay looks like
it's overflowing with V8 power. The 4.5-liter SOHC motor with Bosch
fuel injection is legendary for its smoothness and torque-filled
nature. The combination of the motor, three-speed automatic
transmission, and fully independent suspension has a well-sorted
feeling in this example that gives you added confidence out on the
road. And the power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes
continue the composed driver feeling.
Complete with owner's manual and currently on a salvage title, this
is the affordable Mercedes that has a great premium feel today and
it leaves room in your budget to personalize it for even more
appeal. Call today!!!
