FROM THE OKOBOJI MUSEUM COLLECTION: Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale WITHOUT RESERVE and SOLD to the highest bidder January 19th - 22nd, 2017 at Russo and Steele's 17th Annual Scottsdale Arizona Auction at the Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. Please contact us for more information. In the realm of luxury imported convertibles, one of the first examples to come to mind would be the Mercedes 450 SL. An extremely heavy weight car for its size (3494 pounds), the car handles like a dream, cruising effortlessly on either interstate or two lane back roads. Powered by a 275.8cid V8 pushing out 225 horsepower, backed up with an automatic transmission and equipped with power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, power windows, power locks, CD player and has both hard and soft convertible tops, this car is the real deal in luxury automobiles. The exterior has been recently refinished, the interior is original and in very good condition and the mechanical systems all function efficiently and properly. This is a car that's just plain fun and there's plenty of that left in this great looking example of Mercedes' prestigious styling and technology.
