For Sale: 1976 Mercedes-Benz 450SL in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1976 Mercedes 450 SL has fuel-injected V8 power, robustly built style, and a desirable hardtop. And it's presented with a kind of timeless color combo and premium style that really lets you know this smooth-cruising classic is a terrific buy.

Red is great to have on a classic European touring machine like this. The color has been updated to remain quite bold, and Mercedes also knows how to make it look upper-class. It's a cruiser-ready finish, and that means it's stylish but always ready to hit the road. In fact, the upgrades are all about being a true cruiser. There's a trunk-mounted brake light, and the upgraded alloys not only add plenty of shine, but the larger 16-inch size also means you can fit better modern tires. And we love the look of the hardtop in black. It goes well with the bumper trim, side trim, and grille. The previous generation Pagoda car used a similar trick to create a two-tone.

The black interior keeps the color theme going even with the roof off. After all, these SLs are always the most fun when open to the world. Comfortable bucket seats, wood-like trim, and full VDO gauges have a true grand touring feeling. That's also why you have desirable features like power windows, an upgraded AM/FM CD stereo, the classic grippy Mercedes steering wheel, and crisp VDO readouts. There are details you may want to restore/return, like the air conditioning or the soft top. But part of the allure of the R107 model SL is that it had a long production run, and so there are plenty of components to update and personalize your classic Benz.

The allure of a classic like this is that Mercedes made sure you had a proper V8 powerhouse under the hood. The 4.5-liter SOHC motor has fuel injection for consistency and the right torque to be confident in all conditions. Power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes also add to a feeling that's both effortless and poised. So it's ideal for a great all-around driver like this. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission and fully independent suspension are paired to deliver the ultimate grand touring machine.

If you were a fan of the Dallas TV show, there's just a kind of cool feeling to drive a red R107 Mercedes home from a Dallas dealership. And even if you don't care about the Ewings, we know you'll care about a premium icon offered for a terrific price. Call today!!!
