This 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SL is best described as a contemporary classic. Its timeless body design is still regarded as a graceful and elegant shape, its 4.5-liter 190HP V-8 engine still delivers performance on par with contemporary standards and its 4-wheel independent suspension still delivers excellent cornering capability while maintaining a supple ride quality. This particular Mercedes-Benz is of 1979 vintage and is the last year the 450SL came with the large-displacement 4.5-liter, single overhead cam, V-8 engine and the 3-speed automatic transmission. Presented in beautiful Light Ivory exterior with a contrasting blue leather interior. This fully optioned 450SL comes complete with its original steel hardtop, and Soft-Top as well.
Always Garaged, and maintained at a high level. Recent repairs include, Newer Exhaust from the CAT back, and Newer Battery. The AC works beautifully and blows cold. Blue Leather Interior is in very good condition, seats are super clean as is the wood (rear compartment carpet is a little faded and the trunk carpet is very slightly wore). Everything works, very nice handling and comfortable car to drive. Body is in Near perfect condition, no dings or scratches as you'd expect for a beauty of this caliber. The paint is gorgeous and probably less then 10 years old. The blue cloth soft top is clean and shows little wear and the plastic window is clean and clear. The hard top is good and clean as well. The car shows no indication of accident history and has been maintained properly. It's ready to be enjoyed and driven anywhere. SMILES not included but are unavoidable.
