With its extra shiny black paint, V8 power, and iconic cruiser style, this 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SL is about timeless class. And this one even has the extras we love, like both roofs and wire wheels.
The black paint has a deep shine that gives it a piano-like luster. So that makes for a nice first impression everywhere this premium Benz goes. Even the color-matched hardtop has this high-level finish. So this can even look like a sophisticated coupe. And the refined cruiser style is heightened by the upgraded set of wire wheels with Mercedes tri-star center caps. We also like the look of the sheet metal. The good gloss shows off the clean lines that are still so clearly defined thanks to Mercedes build quality and long-term care on this example.
The R107 series of SL has always been desirable for the choices it offers - especially with the roofs. That's why you not only have the removable hardtop, but there's also a black soft top. It disappears into its own storage well so that the top-down style makes this look like a roadster. The red upholstery is attractive against the black. There are also nice details, like the premium wood trim, power windows, a full VDO gauge package, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. You can see from the pictures that the interior is far from perfect. You may choose to add a new dash pad, restore the air conditioning, update the upholstery, refresh the weather stripping, or other detail. But anything you want to do is also easy to source thanks to a large component network from both Mercedes and the aftermarket. And what never goes away in this car is the fundamental feeling of a car built to such a solid standard. So you have the robust feel of a proper German machine and the opportunity to make it an even more personal reflection of your tastes.
The "450" in 450 SL means this has the 4.5-liter SOHC motor with Bosch fuel injection. It was one of the largest motors of its era, and it's known for its torque-filled nature that knows how to give this Benz plenty of hustle. And this is a full proper cruiser with a fully independent suspension, a three-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a recent set of modern touring tires.
Complete with owner's manual packet, this is sleek style and timeless elegance that also has the potential for your personal touch. Call today!!!
