For sale is my Pristine 1975 Mercedes-Benz 450SL Convertible. This 450SL is immaculate and has a Olive Green exterior with Tan MB-Tex interior. The seats are original condition and look like great. This Mercedes just turned 17k miles and it runs and drives fantastically. This is a really nice low mile car and no doubt the cleanest R107 SL. This vehicle is all original and has never been in any accidents or to the best of my knowledge, had any paint work done. This car is 100% original.
This vehicle needs nothing but a new caring owner and a new home. The previous owner never smoked in this car and it was always meticulously maintained and stored in a heated garage in CT.
The car was always stored in a climate controlled environment and you can tell this because you will not find a spec of rust, even surface rust, on this vehicle. It looks like it rolled off the showroom floor yesterday. Everything underneath looks like new. The previous owner told me the car had only been washed a few times. He would take the vehicle out for a short drive, and put it back into the garage, dust it off, and under a car cover it went. The convertible top was always down on the car, he never had the top up at all. He never drove the car in cold or wet weather, so he never used it.
When these pictures were taken, this was the first time since 1976, that the hardtop had been installed on the vehicle. The hardtop sat in the attic for 40 years under a tarp.
Upon inspecting the vehicle, I learned that even the radio and the power antenna are original to the vehicle. I know this because I have all the original warranty cars for the items and the VIN number and item number all match! I also learned that all the rubber seals and weather stripping are also original and have date codes on them. The convertible top is also original and can be verified by its proper "wopavin" markings on the rear glass. In the trunk, you will find the original Pirelli spare tire with the label still affixed to it, its never been mounted. You will also find the original Jack with the tag still on it and the complete tool kit. All the glass on the vehicle is original and has the Mercedes logos on every piece. When we removed the wheels to check the brakes, we learned that the vehicle still had the original factory brake pads! All the proper stickers and tags are present on this vehicle. Even the valve stem caps on the alloy wheels are original. Its just unbelievable! If you look closely, you will see that the car still has its original German Bosch stainless steel wiper arms! These were always thrown away after the first wiper change and cant be ordered anymore.
This Mercedes 450SL is loaded up with practically every possible option that could have been ordered. It has MB Tex seats, both hard and soft top, optional light weight alloy wheels, glove box flashlight, power windows, power locks, dual remote mirrors, power antenna with original AM/FM Becker radio, cruise control, intermittent wipers, ICE COLD AC, full set of factory gauges, and so much more.
This vehicle was very well cared for and it shows. The maintenance is all current and the vehicle is reliable and runs like a dream. The car has matching Michelin tires on it that are in great condition and do not leak at all. We just installed a new battery less than 100 miles ago and we went through this vehicle from the top to bottom to make sure every single feature in the vehicle works the way it should, and I guarantee that. Even the air conditioner works and has the original R12 system seals! We have driven this vehicle around town and it seems to be running and driving 100%. You can literally jump in this vehicle and drive it back home without any problems. The motor and transmission fluids are all very clean and the vehicle has good brakes, good rotors, and good windshield wiper blades. The vehicle is ready to go now without any issues.
The exterior of the vehicle is super clean. The body panels are all perfect and the paintwork is all original and in perfect shape. The paint is glossy and the vehicle looks like its only a couple of years old. You can see your reflection in the paint of this vehicle. The exterior is in show room condition and super mint. The soft top is original and there is absolutely no wear on the top at all and all the top handles work perfectly. There is no flaws to point out on the exterior at all. Its just a great vehicle.
The interior of the vehicle is like brand new. The seats are in great condition and the MB Tex is supple and clean. The dash and door panels are also in perfect condition and clean with no blemishes at all. All the trimmings and other interior trims are in perfect condition with no cracks or delamination. The interior is in fantastic condition in my opinion.
