HIGHLIGHTS: 1978 Mercedes 450SL with an incredibly low documented
33,000 actual miles. Complete ownership history since new!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this 450SL is clean and straight, as one
would expect for a vehicle with this low of miles. The body is free
of any bubbling or evidence of any accidents. There are some of
your typical road rash that you would expect with a vehicle that
hasn't been restored, but all of the minor flaws are consistent
with a 33k mile vehicle. 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 well documented Mercedes appears to
be wearing the majority of its original yellow paint. Considering
the age of the vehicle, the paint is in nice condition. While some
normal fading has occurred and based on the receipts we do know
that the decklid was repainted in the early 80s and if you look
closely you can tell it has some cracking in the paint and is a
shade off. Aside from the aforementioned nicks and dings, the paint
has held up well. Overall, this is a car with plenty of curb appeal
and would be considered in the perfect condition to be driven and
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Much like the exterior of this car,
the interior is in remarkable condition, which is no surprise given
the low mileage. Most of the interior is original to the car, but
we do have receipts in the mid 90s when the seats were replaced.
Because of this, the seats, carpet and dash all look in incredible
shape. 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! Accompanying
this vehicle is a binder full of receipts that showcase why this
vehicle is incredible to drive.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The extremely low miles, awesome
color combination and the fact that we have every receipt since new
on the car.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Low mileage vehicles aren't for
everyone. And the small paint issues on the decklid.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Nope, everything works on this car. Even the
A/C is blowing cold.
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Any Mercedes-Benz enthusiast
looking for a clean, ready to drive R107 450SL!
