Description:

Not many cars can defy time like this beautiful and unusual 1975 Mercedes-Benz 450SL. Even today, nearly 25 years after they went out of production, they still command respect from the general masses, and remain grade-A cars to own and drive, representing huge bang for the buck. Like most luxury models, you could pretty much get whatever color you wanted on your SL, even in 1975. While so many of these cars were red, white, or silver, this 450SL sports a lovely light ivory that works splendidly with the green interior. It also represents the high-water mark for the R107 roadster, a near-ideal blend of style and luxury that made it the premier luxury car of the era. The paint remains in exceptionally good condition given the car''s age, a testament to the quality of the original materials and the car this car has received over the past two-and-a-half decades. Gaps and panel fit are to typical German standards and remain excellent today. Light colors tend to minimize flaws, but even on close inspection this one has laser-straight flanks, crisply rendered body lines, and almost zero signs of road rash in any of the usual locations. All the chrome and stainless remains bright, and the US-spec rubber bumpers, which usually suffer from degradation in the sunlight, remain supple and clear. It''s obvious someone loved this car for many years. The green interior are a sporting compliment to the light ivory paint, with seats beautifully rendered in MB-Tex that is both comfortable and durable. The interior''s condition strongly suggests that it has been exceptionally well maintained since new: there are no wear issues on the seats, the carpets are appropriate to the car''s age and mileage, and the rear package shelf, which always gets baked in the sun, shows zero discoloration. You''ll also note that lots of features were standard on an SL, ranging from air conditioning to cruise control to power windows, and the original Becker AM/FM stereo is still doing its thing in the center of the dash. Overhead there''s a black convertible top that fits snugly, and all SLs came standard with matching hardtops. The trunk has its original mat, spare tire, and even the complete tool roll stashed under the spare tire. Nice! The 4.5 liter V8 is a wonderful machine, torquey and smooth with a fantastic bubbly exhaust note that sings in appropriately hushed tones thanks to a correct exhaust system. Known for their longevity, these engines are virtually indestructible given proper maintenance, and will happily run for hundreds of thousands of miles with just gas and oil changes. Judging by the underhood area, this one has been lovingly maintained, and shows signs of recent service, including new ignition components, hoses, and filters. A 3-speed automatic transmission was standard equipment on US-bound SLs. The fully independent suspension rides extremely well, yet gives the roadster competent handling when the road turns aggressive, and strong disc brakes at all four corners shed speed without concern. And while rust is always the enemy, this car has clearly spent its life somewhere warm, because it''s amazingly clean and solid throughout. Classic Mercedes alloys wear recent 205/70/14 Michelin radials. This is a gorgeous 450SL with a clean bill of health, an attractive and unusual color combination, and lots of charm. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
