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

Vehicle Description

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 power.


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 alloy wheels.


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!!!
