Classic Car Overview

If you are in the market for an exceptional deal on a legit classic car, then take a closer look at this 1973 Mercedes-Benz 450SL. Offering timeless styling, first-class comfort, and bulletproof reliability, this Mercedes has a lot going for it! 1973 was the final year of the desirable small bumper SL in the United States. One year later the government would step in and insist on the large, clumsy bumpers. The R107 SLs shape should be quite familiar by now, but for folks outside the hobby, they still represent luxury and plenty of class. This SL lives up to the hype, there are a few signs of age, but at this price, theyre easy to overlook. Overall though, the cream paint is in decent shape, showing remarkable preservation for a 46-year-old finish. Equipped with just a tasteful few splashes of chrome, the grille, lenses, and polished trim all look great against the cream paint, giving it a very upscale look that never gets old. And with both a hard top and soft top, this Benz is ready for any occasion. Inside, the luxurious interior has been meticulously cared for, with a few choice pieces having been replaced, most notably the upholstery on the seats and door panels. And even though those leather seating surfaces have been recovered, they look right at home in the top-of-the-line SL. Inside the dash youll find no-nonsense gauges that are big, clear, and easy to read at a glance, and the 99,369 mile reading on the odometer is in fact actual. The center console houses the rest of the controls including the power windows, air conditioning, and the traditional gaited shifter. On the floor, the plush carpet looks good, and is protected by stock Mercedes-Benz floor mats. Overall, the interior is in great condition and with a trunk that is well shaped and deep enough for your overnight bags, you will be ready to pack up and hit the road! Pop open the hood and youll reveal a correct and believed original Bosch fuel injected 4.5 liter V8. Based on the overall look of the engine bay, it looks like its never been out, and that would certainly make sense based on the mileage. These vintage Merc motors can log a million miles if properly cared for and maintained, and this one looks to have been treated exactly like that. Equipped with power steering, fuel injection and power 4-wheel disc brakes, this Mercedes is a dream to drive regularly, and for extended distances. Bolted to the V8 is a 3-speed automatic transmission that is ready for life on the highway. At the corners, 14 Mercedes wire wheels bring together the traditional look, and are wrapped in 205/70R14 rubber all around. This solid 450SL is ready to be enjoyed, or taken up a few notches and shown as a final vestige of the small bumper SLs in the US. And with a price like this, it wont last long under our showroom lights! Call today!
