This gorgeous dream of a car is in very good condition ready to be driven away. A Champaign Metalic finish is showcased on the exterior of this car; in very nice condition once you see the car you will fall in love. You will drive in class to the golf course or tennis courts either as a convertible or a hard top. This 450 SL sure has that classic look of the earlier Mercedes models.
Since 2012, some of the repairs that have been performed are; new sun visors, new brake calipers and pads, new subframe bushings, new exhaust system, a new battery, new pan gasket, and new plugs along with some basic maintainance. The body is very straight and there is sure no sign of repairs or chips/scratches. Ther appears to be no rust evident.
The interior looks like almost new, the seats do show some wear from over the years but no upgrade was done. It's very original. With some leather conditioner, I think the seats would come back to very good condition. The dash is also in very nice. There are ususually cracks on these older Mercedes dashes, but this dash has one very small crack that is not real obvious.
The car is believed to be original miles, averaging 1700 miles a year the car sure does not seem like it has been driven a lot in the past . An updated Alpine stereo was added with a 6 CD changer in the trunk.
All of its equipment is currently working, the AC, radio, gauges and lights. Including aftermarket speakers located in the rear of the car for those days when all you want to do is listen to music and enjoy the drive.
It is very rare to see a 1980 Mercedes in this great condition, we can truly say it is one of the nicer 450SL models we've seen for a while. The car rides on BF Goodrich tires and its original Mercedes Benz wheels, size tires in the front and the rear P205/70R14. The removable hard top is in excellent condition. The trunk is the perfect example of how great this car is, it is extremely clean and very spacious for those grocery days.
Its hard to believe this car is over 30 years old, this could be a cherished addition to your collection. Carrying a 4.5L engine and producing up to 220 hp @ 5000rpm this car drives smooth and shift its gears very easily. The brown convertible soft top is also very nice on the car. The undercarriage is in good condition overall, barely showing any rust and the body is very straight just like its exterior and interior.
