HIGHLIGHTS: Beautifully maintained, 1979 450SL finished in a
beautiful shade of yellow! 4.5L V8! This iconic piece of German
engineering is in fantastic shape showing proof of excellent care.
This is a turn-key car ready to hit the streets!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this 450SL is clean and straight, as one
would expect for a well-maintained car of this caliber. While there
are some dings in the bumpers, the rest of the car is incredibly
straight. All emblems are in place and have a brilliant shine! The
body on this car is in beautiful condition, and must be seen in
person to be fully appreciated.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This 450SL has received a repaint in what
appears to be a GM yellow, which looks fantastic on this 1970s
Mercedes. The new brown soft top really highlights the paint color
as well.The paint is in great condition with a bright shine and a
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Much like the exterior of this car,
the interior is in remarkable condition, which is no surprise given
the low mileage of 87,140. The original leather is showing minor,
normal creasing, as seen in the photos. However, even with the low
mileage, the leather is in incredible shape for its age! The
dashboard, which is an area prone to cracking on these cars, is in
great shape as well. New carpet and new floor mats have also been
installed. This car is comfortable, and presents very nicely!
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is the 4.5L Mercedes-Benz V8.
The engine in this car purrs like any good Mercedes-Benz should,
and provides more than adequate power for a car this size. It feels
very solid to drive, and handles like only a German touring car
can. This car fires right up, and is a blast to drive! With four
wheel disk brakes and independent front and rear suspension, this
is truly a driver's car. While it may not have the instant power of
a supercharged Mustang or Camaro, there's not a single moment
behind the wheel of this 450SL that you forget you're driving a
powerful and sturdy vehicle.
